Next on "The Ultimate Fighter"  . . . female coaches and female fighters.

UFC president Dana White announced Saturday during UFC 158 that women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey would coach the next season of "TUF," which holds an open casting call April 15 in Las Vegas.

Rousey will coach against the winner of the Miesha Tate-Cat Zingano fight on April 13 at the Season 17 Ultimate Finale.

The show will feature both male and female bantamweight fighters in the house, which should make things somewhat interesting initially.
