Expected by many to be an unpredictable and exciting season already due to a first-ever format, the 18 th season of “The Ultimate Fighter” got off to an unpredictable start Tuesday when taping began.

Though much of “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey and Miesha “Cupcake” Tate's rivalry has been fueled by harsh words, their final words at Thursday's the UFC 168 pre-fight press conference in Las Vegas were rather pedestrian in comparison to the past. With UFC 168 on Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas headlined by middleweight champion Chris Weidman's rematch against Anderson Silva and those two taking center stage, along with the always entertaining Josh Barnett stealing the show, Rousey and Tate very much stuck to their guns without a whole lot of histrionics accompanying them.

There is no love lost between Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate, and that will play out on the center stage of reality television every Wednesday night in the coming weeks. Already a trailblazer in the world of women's mixed martial arts - and women's sports as a whole, for that matter - Rousey, the Ultimate Fighting Championship women's bantamweight champion, and arch nemesis Tate will headline “The Ultimate Fighter 18,” which premieres Wednesday night at 7 p.m. on Fox Sports 1. With Rousey and Tate serving as the long-running show's first-ever female coaches, the series will also feature another first in that it will showcase female fighters, along with male fighters fighting in separate 135-pound tournaments.

Just a few days after the prospects of Ronda Rousey defending her Ultimate Fighting Championship women's bantamweight title in a blockbuster bout with Gina Carano seemed oh so close, UFC President Dana White announced late Friday night that Rousey will instead put her belt on the line against No. 2-ranked Alexis Davis. “Ronda Rousey vs (sic) Alexis Davis Saturday, July 5th for the women's bantamweight title in Las Vegas for International Fight Week!!!” White tweeted.

March Madness is in full swing and, as usual, a number of small conference teams have already pulled bracket-busting upsets over some of the nation's top programs, perhaps none more shocking than 14-seed Harvard's 68-62 win over 3-seed New Mexico . You may have missed - as social media erupted into (relatively) good-natured Harvard-hating - that key to the Crimson's stunning victory was  Kenyatta Smith , Flintridge Prep's former All-Area Boys' Basketball Player of the Year . The sophomore center scored 10 points and added seven rebounds and two blocks to help Harvard secure the win, its first in NCAA Tournament history.

Just more than four months ahead of her next championship defense, Ultimate Fighting Championship women's bantamweight titlist “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey embarked on perhaps the most ambitious path of her whirlwind career. “I'm off to Bulgaria - time to attempt the boldest feat of multitasking in my career,” Rousey wrote on Twitter Aug. 21 as she departed for the Baltic nation to begin filming the action movie “The Expendables 3.” So far so good, apparently. In fact, things might be even better than usual for Rousey, according to her head coach at the Glendale Fighting Club, Edmond Tarverdyan.

First-round victories are nothing new for “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey. Wins via strikes are, however, and that's exactly what Rousey got Saturday night in the main event of UFC 170 at Las Vegas' Mandalay Bay, defeating challenger Sara McMann at the 1:06 mark of the first round to defend her Ultimate Fighting Championship women's bantamweight title. The 27-year-old Rousey (9-0) defended her title for the third time in handing McMann (7-1) her first career loss, as the Glendale Fighting Club-trained champion crumpled McMann with a left knee to the body and followed with a barrage of punches that brought upon a stoppage from referee Herb Dean.

One could argue that for a championship bout with such provocative story lines and pedigrees, Ronda Rousey's UFC 170 main event against Sara McMann has had less than three months of build-up. In reality, many would contend that the impending showdown for the Ultimate Fighting Championship women's bantamweight title has been years in the making. “We started at the amateur level at the exact same time,” said Rousey at a recent open workout at the Glendale Fighting Club, where she trains under Edmond Tarverdyan.

Three days before 2013 ended, Rousey put a resounding exclamation point on the year with a victory at UFC 168 that was riveting, dramatic, dominant and controversial.
