Welcome to Frank Pozen's Big Bad Blog. A lot of folks have been asking me to update them about my recovery. So I thought I would start a blog primarily to do that but also to talk about other topics of interest including the wrestling business and whatever else I can think of. I plan to update this on a regular basis so check back and leave a comment if you wish.

Ronda Rousey vs Miesha Tate 2 set for Dec. 28 UFC show
At a media scrum for UFC 162, UFC president Dana White announced that UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey will defend her belt against Miesha Tate at UFC 168 Dec. 28 in Las Vegas. Of course we have known about this fight for a while but now it has a date. These two have been coaches on The Ultimate Fighter 18. The show wrapped up shooting today and will premiere in September on Fox Sports 1 in the US. Rogers hasn't announced where TUF will air in Canada. Last year it was on FX Canada but most UFC shows are moving to Sportsnet 360 so I expect this will air there too. The Score was purchased by Rogers a few months ago and rebranded yesterday as Sportsnet 360. Ronda and Miesha will never be buddies so I expect a lot of drama on TUF 18. It could be a lot of fun. The title fight should generate in excess of 500,000 PPV buys.
