Ronda Rousey, 28, and Bethe Correia, 32, went head-to-head at UFC 190 in one of the most highly anticipated fights of the year. But it didn't last very long.
The fight got personal for Rousey in the weeks and months leading to the match. Rousey came into the fight upset with Correia and promised to brutalize the Brazilian after she made a comment about Rousey’s father’s suicide. Rousey said Correia crossed the line, so she would try to embarrass her in front of her fans.
"She is winning, so everybody is around her cheering her up, but when she realizes she is not everything that she believes she is, I don’t know what might happen," Correia trashed talked, laughing. "I hope she does not kill herself later on."
Rousey shot back on Twitter: "Suicide is no joke or selling point. My father will be with me the day I hand you the comeuppance you deserve."
The biggest star in the UFC didn’t disappoint any of her fans as she quickly disposed of the challenger within 34 seconds of the first round. After the fight Rousey made one thing clear: “I hope nobody brings up my family anymore when it comes to fights.”
An emotional Rousey dedicated the win to the late professional wrestler "Rowdy" Roddy Piper. Piper, who died in his sleep Friday, had given Rousey permission to use his "Rowdy" nickname.
"I hope him and my dad had a good time watching today," said Rousey, fighting back tears.
