“My mother told me the same thing. ‘Please, finish this fight in 10 seconds. Knock her out, break her jaw’. It’s a mom thing. No mom wants to see a daughter get beat up, get hurt, and Ronda’s mom thinks about it. It’s easier to go for a takedown and lock an armbar, you don’t get hurt. My mom wants me to go there, throw the first punch, Ronda goes down, and I go back to her arms. It’s normal.”
UFC bantamweight and title challenger Bethe Correia told the media on Thursday that her mother also told her to end the fight quickly, via KO. Seems like both these moms don’t want their girls getting hurt, or maybe just want the other girl to get hurt bad.
