Bethe Correia has launched the latest of her verbal offensive against Ronda Rousey - this time promising a round one finish and makeover.
The undefeated Brazilian star has fast risen through the ranks of the Women's Bantamweight division, in part due to her 'feud' with Rousey and her teammates.
As she gets closer and closer to a possible fight with Rousey - she's getting rowdier and rowdier with the champ.

"I will knock Ronda out in the first round, but first I’ll do her a favor and knock that mole off her face with a punch."
"I will knock Ronda out in the first round," Correia told MMAFighting.com.
"I want her to beat Zigano fast and without injuries, so we can fight right after. I want to be the one to take her title."

After being forced out of a fight with Miesha Tate due to injury, it's obvious that Correia is trying to catapult herself into the title picture - benefitting from the lack of viable opponents around Rousey.
Rousey has dispatched all but one fighter ranked in the top five, and that's Zingano, who had been laid up with injuries and personal problems for the past year.
Now, if Rousey gets her out of the way, that leaves Correia to continue her path to a title shot against the also undefeated Rousey.
A storyline straight out of WWE
Correia and Rousey's rivalry started when Rousey declared herself, Jessamyn Duke, Shayna Baszler and Marina Shafir as the 'Four Horsewomen of MMA' - a reference to the popular 80's and 90's wrestling stable - The Four Horsemen, led by Ric Flair.
It's something that didn't set will with Correia and after she beat Duke, she held up four fingers and then put one down once the decision victory was announced.
That lead her then to fighting Baszler and leaving her with just Rousey and Shafir - but Shafir doesn't fight in the bantamweight division, so that leaves only Rousey left.
While Correia needs a win over a bigger opponent to really show herself as a solid threat, talking her way to a title shot could be the next big thing and an advantage when it comes to surprising Rousey.
All in all, there's a lot left to be seen - especially the performance of Zingano but don't be too surprised if Correia gets her wish.
