“It was a pretty quick fight, which I kind of anticipated. I actually thought she might finish it at the end of the first round because I know she really wanted to punish Bethe. But Bethe ended up going down like a sack of potatoes before, I think, Ronda could really punish her like she wanted to.”
“If there was any time that I actually felt bad for Ronda – kind of sympathized with her – it was in this fight. Because I really thought that Bethe overstepped some personal boundaries that she just shouldn’t. I mean, Ronda and I are probably never going to get along. We’re probably never going to be friends, necessarily, but there’s a certain amount of respect that one another should have for each other – as fighters, if nothing more.
“I think [Correia] got what was coming to her.”
UFC bantamweight Miesha Tate watched UFC 190 and played extra close attention to the main event, where champ Ronda Rousey took on Bethe Correia. Tate was already tapped to fight the winner, after her impressive win over Jessica Eye at UFC on FOX 16.
Tate told The MMA Hour that she actually felt kind of bad for Rousey because of the comments Correia made about suicide.
