Caraway, who has been dating Miesha Tate for years, admits Rousey is a world-class fighter, but he doesn't think she's someone young girls should look up to.
"I don't have any ill thoughts or bad intentions toward Ronda. I don't hate her and I want her to know that," Caraway said of Rousey this week. "She's a talented, world-class athlete. I think she's a stud fighter. I just don't agree with the way she approaches things and conducts herself. I don't feel like she's a role model and I think there's a lot better ways to go about it. Her, Miesha and I are just completely different types of people."
As for Tate, she says Caraway was a big part of the "TUF 18" filming and coaching process.
"He was instrumental in the whole process because he'd been on the fourteenth season of The Ultimate Fighter," Tate told SI.com this week. "He was able to relate to the fighters in a way the rest of the staff just couldn't. We didn't have the experience of being locked up in a house for six weeks like he had."
Tate says she took a lighter approach to coaching on "TUF 18," since many of the fighters in the house had as much experience as her.
"I didn't want to overstep boundaries," said Tate, who admits she had extremely limited coaching experience prior to the show. "I'm not the type to walk into a gym and try and teach everyone something. A lot of the guys had been fighting as long as I have, but if I saw something I could share I did, but at the same time, I tried not to talk like I was above them."
