Producers of The Ultimate Fighter likely wish Cat Zingano didn’t hurt her knee in a match with Miesha Tate for multiple reasons. The injury will not only force Zingano to miss a title fight, it also forced her to drop out of coaching the reality show this season.
Tate replaced Zingano, which has made this season a little awkward. Tate and Ronda Rousey have some major beef.
“Miesha and Ronda hate each other,” UFC President Dana White told Yahoo! Sports. “It’s like literally crazy drama every day.”
White said filming of the reality season is going “bad” because of Tate and Rousey’s in-fighting. Rousey didn’t go as far as to say it was going poorly, but she stressed that it was hard work.
“It’s a lot more work than I thought it would be, and it’s a lot more emotionally taxing than I thought it would be,” Rosey said during a Facebook chat on Wednesday. “You care a lot about these kids. I just felt like any kind of heartbreak or triumph, whatever they’re going through, I share in it. It’s exhausting going through that over and over and over with every competitor. You’re just so emotionally invested in every person that it really takes a lot out of you.”
Rousey went on to say the experience has been an emotional one. She said that everyone is excited to get away from the cameras and go back home.
“So far, it’s tiring, and it’s every day,” Rouse said. “It’s been a very exciting season, but it has also been very taxing on everybody. So I think we’re all going to be very happy to get home, but I’m sure all the fans will be very happy with the result.”

It looks like Shane Victorino knew this would be painful.
That’s too bad.

It appears Josh Hamilton has perfected this grab.
