Cat Zingano out of The Ultimate Fighter 18 with injury, Miesha Tate now coaches opposite Ronda Rousey
Unbeaten Cat Zingano, who was slated to coach opposite women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, injured a knee and was replaced as coach by long-time Rousey rival Miesha Tate.
Rousey did not know that Zingano was injured - UFC president Dana White said it had been a tightly kept company secret since Zingano injured her right knee during a May 16 workout - or that Tate had been brought in to replace her, until the opening scenes of the show were filmed on Tuesday.
When Tate came out, Rousey was clearly stunned and she stormed out of the UFC training center, searching for White. She later said she was angry because she thought Tate was replacing her.
