Bethe Correia Begins Campaign For Ronda Rousey Rematch

Bethe Correia (pictured) still has all the confidence in the world despite getting face-planted by reigning bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey in merely 34 seconds at UFC 190. The chatty Brazilian talked the talk leading into this month’s scrap, but was unable to walk the walk because Rousey mauled her from the jump.

Nearly three weeks after the highlight-reel KO loss, Correia is now letting her thumbs do the talking by way of Instagram. Guess who wants a rematch against the “Rowdy” one?

“I was extremely criticized and judged by lack of respect due to a bad interpretation of the current champ,” Correia wrote over the weekend. “All that time I saw the real face of the current champ trying to pose as a saint while she always said publicly that she wanted to make me “have a meeting with Jesus” which was her true intention. The media never gave that much coverage. I’d never would fight anyone with the intention to kill, break their neck which is something there’s no return from. I wouldn’t joke about it, because wanting to kill someone is not caring about the pain their family would feel!

“So I tell @rondarousey I’m here and I’ll fight for a rematch in 2016, stronger, more mature, we’ll see each other again! I wanted to fight you and I got it. I’ll get that chance again and I’ll have my revenge at the right time!”

It’s not like a sequel is out of the question considering Rousey is about to face Miesha Tate for a third time despite already owning a pair of submission finishes over her bitter rival. Parlay that with the fact there isn’t much depth in the UFC women’s bantamweight division and Correia can probably talk her way into a rematch after a few more victories.

Maybe she’ll last 35 seconds the next time around…
