Ronda Rousey Vs. Bethe Correia: What You Need To Know
Ronda has risen to fame by beating her opponents in just seconds. In July 2014, Ronda beat Alexis Davis in 16 seconds. She later beat that record in March 2015 when she defeated Cat Zingano in just 14 seconds. Going into the fight, Ronda was undefeated. Bethe also had an impressive record, winning most of her previous fights by unanimous decision. However, Ronda vowed to beat Bethe and make her suffer after Bethe mocked Ronda’s teammates and appeared to get in a dig about the suicide of Ronda’s father in pre-fight interviews.
“Some things take longer,” Rousey said in May, according to USA Today. “Like, a choke takes longer than an armbar, and a TKO takes longer than the choke. I might go for the prolonged finish instead.” Whoa.
Ronda also noted that this fight was a personal one. “This definitely is the most personal fight I’ve been in,” Ronda said, according to The Guardian. “It’s the most pressure I’ve been under. That’s another reason that Bethe is never meant to be a champion. She said: ‘I have no pressure on me. No one expects anything out of me, and that’s an advantage.’”
