Rousey to TUF 18 Women – No Sex on My Watch

(Hypocrisy is her name | Video via ShoSports)

At the The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale last night, Cat Zingano earned a shot at Ronda Rousey’s UFC bantamweight belt as well as an opposing coach slot on The Ultimate Fighter 18 with her beastly TKO over Miesha Tate. At the post-event press conference her and Rousey posed for photos and Rousey spoke with MMA Junkie about, among other things, the tight ship she plans on keeping as a TUF 18 coach.

Presumably for the same reason that TUF producers have been quick to stock and re-stock at fighter requests the TUF House liquor cabinet in direct opposition to what is good for training, fighting and fighters, the TUF 18 House will be co-ed, occupied by both female and male contestants on the competition. That is, the idea that setting up as many extra curricular, dangerous roadblocks for fighters can make for tragic lost opportunities but also, and more important, great, drama-riddled television.

If anyone wonders what type of sexual tension and (network executive fingers crossed oh so tight) actual activity might be spurred on among male and female fighters locked in a mansion for months without access to their family or friends back home, television, radio, newspapers or reading material of any sort outside of the Bible (the Matt Hughes special dispensation), then it is likely you’ve gotten the precise point of why the UFC and Fox are doing this way. Rousey was clear, however, that she’ll tell her female team members what types of consequences will be in store for those who can’t keep it in their pants.

“If they’re the chick that was screwing around the house, for the rest of their career they’re going to be known as the chick that was screwing around the house. Sponsors are going to be looking at that. Everybody’s going to be looking at that,” she told MMA Junkie.

“If you think it’s $100,000 worth of that lay [ed. note - she talkin 'bout boning], then go for it, but I’m just going to remind them that there’s a lot of very permanent consequences to how they carry themselves in the house,” Rousey went on.

Ronda has always struck this writer as normal, authentic and healthy in the way she balances the fact that she ain’t bad to look at with the fact that she’s also a deadly-serious elite professional athlete. So her above statements initially seem just like sage advice for female fighters on the reality of the unfair up-hill battles they face as pioneers in the sport (although it is not clear whether having sex has been or will be officially ‘banned’ on TUF like fighting outside of the ring and leaving the house without permission, for example).

Then again, we seem to remember Ronda telling Showtime that having sex as much as possible before fights is good for her as a fighter because it elevates testosterone levels. Could it be that Ms. Rousey is trying to keep away one of her training secrets from future challengers?

We can’t say for sure whether that stupid, not-seriously offered theory is true or not (it isn’t), but it did give us the opportunity to post the above video of Rousey talking about sex with world-class creep Jim Rome, so there. The UFC and television networks are not the only ones that get to attract more visitors and viewers with cheap tricks and mentioning sex, are they? We should say not.

Good call Onan, clearly based on passed TUF competitors only the best of the best looking women would have a shot at getting laid in the TUF house. Hello ladies, Junie browning is here, only 10's need apply. Most of those douche bags probably fuck the lawn chairs and the pool table when the camera is off.

I just hope these fighters protect themselves during the deed. Who knows what kind of diseases MMA fighters carry in their under carriage. We may see more ER visits on this season than last!

I think her comments were directed specifically at Roxanne Modafferi. JK, actually, Ronda doesn't want any boning done until she's had first pick of the guys. Then the ladies are free to have her leftovers.

Also, I could see a strategy being developed to try and throw off someone on the opposing team by using your eliminated men/women via seduction. But the ladies may want to watch out, or they will be injected with a large amount of TRT.

I don't see there being much sex going on in this house. Most female MMA fighters don't look like Ronda or Carano. Most, on their best day, look like more fit versions of the field hockey chicks from high school.

That is true, but "any port in a storm..."

Has anyone considered girl on girl action? Not to say that all female fighters are lesbians, but I would imagine there is a disproportionate numbers of lesbians in MMA than the general population.

Christopher. although Mildred`s comment is neat, last saturday I bought a great new Chevrolet Corvette since I been bringin in $6243 this last 4 weeks and-just over, ten-k this past month. with-out any question its the nicest job Ive ever had.

I've never made that much money in a month ever! This one time, I blew a hobo and his 5 hobo friends in a Dennys parking lot, out back by the garbage bins. I made enough money that day to take the bus back to grandma's house. Ahh, good times.

I think there's a difference between banging on camera for millions of people to have an opinion vs banging in your own personal privacy before a fight. she just knows if any of the girls fuck on camera they'll be called the town pump for the rest of there career while the guy goes on to get high fives over it till he's dead.

This is all a big misunderstanding. I believe she actually said:

"No sex unless I can watch. If you think it's worth it film it and we'll get you $100,000.00 per lay."

She's only fighting like twice a year so it makes sense she's got a little side hustle.

Damn! You have clearly met my ex wife
Mr_Misanthropy- April 14, 2013 at 6:27 pm
Fuck that bitch! I thought she was slutty but she fucked all my friends and wouldn't fuck me.

How the f*ck do you see hypocrisy in this?
These are two differet situations. Do you know if Rhonda is boning other fighters who have fights coming up?

While Ronda may be right that lay and bang may ultimately help your stand and bang, and celibacy may not result in your best performance, she's got a point about future earnings.

The trouble with being on a reality show is that regardless of whether or not you have any meaningful connection with whoever you sleep with, it always looks like you're just doing it for attention because you're doing it on TV. Sad fact, but true and it's usually the woman who gets the worst press for it.

Ai dios mio.

It's gonna be hard for the fighters to follow that advice when there will be producers hanging around the TUF House egging people on to fuck. I look forward to this mess.
