Ronda Rousey demands to fight Bethe Correia

Published 1 Comments

Ronda Rousey has completely dominated the Ultimate Fighting Championship's women's division since it's inception and has risen to celebrity status whilst maintaining her unbeaten record.

As the face of the female UFC, Rousey is obviously going to receive jibes all the time, it's what happens when you are dominant and on top. And the latest fighter to go out of her way to go at Rousey is the Brazilian Bethe Correia.

Brazilian Bombs

Correia, hailing from Natal, defeated Shayna Baszler - one of Rousey's friends and training partners - on Saturday night during UFC 177's main card at Sleep Train Arena. Correia put on a vicious striking clinic to finish the veteran Baszler, essentially leaving her knocked out on her feet as the fight was waved off in the second round.

"I have a message for Ronda Rousey," Correia said through an interpreter in her post-fight interview. "I want her belt and I'm coming to take it. The belt is going to be mine."

Well, as you can imagine, Rousey wasn't best pleased with the UFC newcomers words and is insistent on putting the Brazilian firmly in her place.

Fight Demaded

But according to Dana White, Rousey won't be able to exact her revenge over Correia just yet.

As soon as [Correia] started talking, [Rousey] texted me and said, 'I want that fight; I want it now,' " White said. "'I want it before someone else beats her,' and I said, 'Calm down, lady. You've got other people to fight. We'll figure it out.' "

Other Plans

There are plans in place for Rousey to have a super-fight the first big star of Women's MMA in Gina Carano. Then their is Cat Zingano who was supposed to go up against Ronda for her title, but a knee injury and the death of her estranged husband kept her out of action for while.

It's going to be a few months yet before we get to see Rousey vs Correia, but we can only hope that the smack talk intensifies between the two before an epic showdown for the ages.
