UFC 190: Ronda Rousey Doesn’t Foresee Mending Fences With Rival Bethe Correia
By FCF Staff
Heading into UFC 190, Ronda Rousey has said her bout with Bethe Correia will be the most personal one she’s had yet, and it doesn’t sound like the bantamweight champ sees much changing, after they fight on Saturday.
Correia started calling out Rousey months ago, after she defeated the latter’s friends in Shayna Baszler and Jessamyn Duke. But, after Correia made a remark about not wanting to see Rousey commit suicide after they fight, the champion promised to make the contender pay for the statement. Correia has said she did not know that Rousey’s father took his own life during her youth.
Rousey recently appeared on “UFC Tonight“, and when asked if she still hold a grudge against Correia after the scrap, the Judoka stated (quote via FOX Sports 1 press release):
“I still won’t like her. But I won’t have to think about her anymore. She’ll have to think about me every day. Then I’m going to go think about beating up Miesha again. Then I’ll forget about her. Then I’m going to go make a movie – Mile 22 – with Mark Wahlberg.”
Rousey (11-0) is coming off a quick, submission win over Cat Zingano in February. Correia (9-0), meanwhile, hasn’t fought since she took out Baszler last August.
UFC 190 will be hosted by the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
