It appears that UFC bantamweight Bethe Correia got huge wake up call following her 34 second KO loss to the champ, Ronda Rousey, and now she’s stepping things up in order to come back stronger than ever.
The formerly undefeated Brazilian will now be leaving her home country in order to go to San Jose, CA, where she will apparently be training at AKA, the home of current light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier, former heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez and upcoming middleweight title challenger Luke Rockhold. And that’s just naming a few. Needless to say it’s a great place to go if you’re looking to up your game.
Here’s what Correia told Combate about the move:
“I had the great honor of being invited by Leandro Vieira, AKA jiu-jitsu coach, to spend a season training there. I had already heard a lot of AKA, because the team is very strong, with champion athletes and former UFC champions such as Daniel Cormier and Cain Velasquez, beyond Leandro, who is known worldwide because of his jiu-jitsu. I am very excited to train hard in a gym top I know it is known as a family and I know that will be very welcomed and trained there. I have a great potential to further show the UFC and I want to show the new Bethe. After the fight against Ronda, passed all the teasing I listened, I know that everybody will want to see how I’ll be back, especially now that I’ll train outside of Brazil. I know everyone is curious to see my next fight, to see if I’ll be able to make this turnaround. And I will, I will be like a phoenix, I will rise from the ashes. I’m Brazilian and I never give up.”
Do you think the move will help Correia get back to the top of the division?
