Bethe Correia has stayed under the radar since her devastating loss to Ronda Rousey in Brazil at “UFC 190”. “Rowdy” Rousey disposed of her in just thirty-four seconds, essentially making “Pitbull” pay for all the trash talk she dealt in the weeks leading up to the fight.

Correia released a statement from her Instagram, explaining why she chose to talk trash. She also goes on to address Gene LeBell’s comments about how Rousey said she wished Correia had broken a bone during their fight. Of course, she finishes by informing Rousey that they will meet again in the octagon:

I was extremely criticized and judged by lack of respect due to a bad interpretation of the current champ. All that time I saw the real face of the current champ trying to pose as a saint while she always said publicly that she wanted to make me “have a meeting with Jesus” which was her true intention. The media never gave that much coverage. I’d never would fight anyone with the intention to kill, break their neck which is something there’s no return from. I wouldn’t joke about it, because wanting to kill someone is not caring about the pain their family would feel!

So I tell @rondarousey I’m here and I’ll fight for a rematch in 2016, stronger, more mature, we’ll see each other again! I wanted to fight you and I got it. I’ll get that chance again and I’ll have my revenge at the right time!

Correia has dropped several spots in the UFC’s women’s bantamweight rankings since her loss to Rousey and will need to score a couple wins before she is in talks of another title match. Who do you think would catapult Correia towards the top of her division for another shot at “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!
