UFC video: Watch TUF 18 preview trailer for 'Rousey vs. Tate' debut on FOX Sports 1

On the next season of ... The Ultimate Fighterrrrrrrrrr...

Truth in advertising.

Mixed martial arts (MMA) fans hoping to get their fill of reality show drama are likely to be licking their chops after watching this preview for The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 18, featuring Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Women's Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey coaching against division rival (and substitute number one contender) Miesha Tate.

As Dana White recently said, "It's pure f---ing mayhem."

The bad news is, at least for all your perverts hoping to catch a glimpse of "lesbian hook-ups," the promotion's first-ever co-ed season is emotional and professional -- not sexual -- as 135-pound hopefuls slug it our for a shot at the coveted "six-figure" contract.

TUF 18 debuts Weds., Sept. 4, 2013 at 10 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 1, following the conclusion of UFC Fight Night: "Teixeira vs. Bader" (more on that here).

Following their coaching duties, Tate and Rousey will hook 'em up in a championship rematch (see what happened the first time here) in the co-main event of the UFC 168: "Weidman vs. Silva 2" pay-per-view (PPV), which takes place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Dec. 28, 2013 (details here).

Well, what did you think of this early look at TUF 18?
