Cat Zingano on Saturday night earned The Ultimate Fighter 18 coaching spot opposite UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey with a third-round stoppage of Miesha Tate. TUF 18, however, isn’t breaking ground solely with women coaches and both male and female fighters in the house for the first time, it’s also going to be the first season of the venerable reality show to air on the upcoming Fox Sports 1 network. “The next season of the Ultimate Fighter is moving to Fox Sports 1,” UFC president Dana White announced after Zingano’s victory. “We’re going to be a big part of the programming and we’re really excited about it.” TUF 18 not only moves to Fox Sports 1, but also moves to a new time slot on Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET. The West Coast tape dealy in the United States will also be a thing of the past with the show airing at the same time across the country. The series will launch at 10 p.m. ET on Sept. 4.
