It's no secret Ronda (Rowdy) Rousey and Miesha (Cupcake) Tate don't exactly see eye to eye.

During their recent stint as opposing coaches on The Ultimate Fighter 18, the two spent almost as much air time engaging in heated exchanges as they did training their fighters. Tate played the role of passive aggressor, constantly pushing the UFC women's bantamweight champion's buttons. As a result, Rousey's middle fingers got more exercise than Jack LaLanne.

But as far as Tate is concerned, if she and Rousey can agree on one thing it's that their rematch won't make it to the judges' scorecards.

"I don't want to just win this fight ... I want to finish this fight," Tate said on a recent media call. "That's probably one thing we can agree on. She probably feels the same way. That's how I know it's going to be an amazing fight."
