  • Demands Next Challenger "Cyborg" Get Off Of Steroids
    After the fight, “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey said, “I hope that nobody really brings up my family anymore when it comes to fights. I hope this is the last time.”
    And with that window into her mindset, Ronda Rousey (12-0 MMA, 6-0 UFC)  defended her UFC bantamweight championship by knocking out Brazilian Bethe Correia (9-1 MMA, 3-1 UFC) in the challenger’s hometown of Rio de Janeiro in just 34 seconds, moving to 12-0 as a professional mixed martial arts fighter.
    Rousey, known best for her judo and armbar submission wins, pummeled Correia with her fists, sending the Brazilian face first to the mat for the knockout.
    Rousey surprised Correia by starting the fight with punches. After backing Correia against the cage, Rousey landed a knee to the body that appeared to shock Correia, and then followed it up with two crisp punches that knocked the challenger out cold, dropping her to the canvas with a right hand to the temple. Referee John McCarthy was in quickly to stop the beating – in just 34 seconds.

    Correia did manage to get a few punches off. But Rousey kept pushing forward, making the outcome of little surprise to fight fans.
    It was the first knockout win by punches for Rousey, who has taken just 65 seconds combined to defend in her last three fights. With this fight, Rousey showed that she has expanded her fighting talents.
    For Rousey, the fight was as personal as it was professional. Before the fight, Correia said that she hoped Rousey wouldn’t commit suicide after getting beaten by Correia. While pre-fight chatter is a normal part of professional fighting, Rousey’s father committed suicide when she was a child, and the champion was truly offended that the challenger would use such a personal  memory in order to promote the fight.
    Rousey, 28 years of age and a 2008 Olympic judo bronze medal winner, fought for the first time since a shockingly short 14-second win over Cat Zingano at UFC 184 earlier in the year and the releases of her book, “My Fight/Your Fight,” and the “Furious 7″ film in which she appeared.
    Correia entered UFC 190 with a 9-0 record but was a big underdog in her first UFC title fight.
    “It kind of went how I expected,” Rousey said in an after-fight interview in the octagon. This was her 11th time ending a bout in the first round.
    Rousey’s next fight will be against either Miesha Tate (for a third time) or another Brazilian, Cris “Cyborg” Justino, a featherweight (145 pounds, 10 pounds more than Rousey’s division) who was banned for one year after testing positive for a steroid three years ago. Rousey has said that she will fight Cyborg if the Brazilian fighter will get off the steroids so she can drop the weight and fight in the bantamweight division.
