With a co-ed cast set for the next season of The Ultimate Fighter, coach Ronda Rousey discussed the consequences of being “that girl” once filming begins and the show airs when questioned this weekend by MMAJunkie.com.
Rousey had a clear message for those that earn their way into an opportunity of a life time:
“I think the series, itself, has kind of gone away from the attention-grabby reality TV-esque kind of genre and more into just a documentary series on the toughest, most competitive tournament in martial arts,” said Rousey. “I think that it's going to be very similar in this season, at least on my team.
“I'm going to have to remind these girls that this is the first impression you're setting for women MMA fighters because this is a lot of exposure that they're going to be getting. 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.”
“If you think it's $100,000 worth of that lay (in potential lost sponsorships), 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.”
