Ronda Rousey’s rivalry with Bethe Correia may not date as far back as Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino’s or Miesha Tate’s, but the argument could be made that it IS more personal.
In the weeks leading into UFC 190 in August 2015, Correia took the trash-talk to a level most don’t when she brought up Rousey’s family, specifically her late father. Though Correia claimed it was a misunderstanding, Rousey took this to heart and vowed to make her fight with Correia the longest of her career. It may have been a long night for Correia, but Rousey picked up the vicious knockout win in less than a minute into the fight! The victory helped catapult then-champion Rousey into a different level of superstardom which carried over into her fight with Holly Holm this past Saturday evening at UFC 193.
Rousey walked into the octagon with her head held high, but by the time the fight was over she was staring at the lights. Holm had done the unthinkable and defeated the queen! Everybody from Miesha Tate to “Cyborg” have responded to the knockout mocking Rousey, but Correia’s response may top their’s!

The world turns! And today I am very happy! Perfect strategy! Congratulations Holly!
