Ronda Rousey is the talk of the town after knocking out Brazilian fighter Bethe Correia in a 34-second fight in Rio de Janeiro last Saturday night. Rousey’s aggressive moves inside the cage overwhelmed Correia who could not do anything after she absorbed the knees and simultaneous punches of her opponent. The fight was concluded after Rousey delivered a blow to her temple. With this win, Rousey still holds the UFC women’s bantamweight belt.
This is Rousey’s 12th win throughout her career in MMA. She won 11 of her fights in the first round and only one got her to the third round.
Even on the onset, the fight seemed personal as Rousey was out for blood because of the remark made by Correia prior to the fight. The latter made a joke about Rousey committing suicide in case she loses the fight. Rousey’s father committed suicide when she was just at a tender age of eight.
In an interview after her win Rousey had this to say, “I hope no one brings up my family anymore when it comes to fights. I hope this is the last time.”
