Ronda Rousey knocks out Bethe Correia in 34 seconds (Video)
Ronda Rousey proved once again that she is the best female fighter in the world (and probably better than many male professional fighters).
Rousey improved to 12-0 by destroying Bethe Correia in 34 seconds at UFC 190 in Brazil Saturday night.
Rousey beat Correia with a flurry of punches, giving her a knockout rather than her signature armbar submission.
“I guess she can’t really say anything about my hands now,” Rousey said sarcastically after the fight.
Rousey has now won three straight fights in 34 seconds or less. Nine of her 12 wins have come in under a minute, while Miesha Tate (in their second fight) is still the only fighter to take Rousey beyond the first round.
Rousey also continues to showcase her growing versatility. After winning her first eight fights by armbar, Rousey has won three of her past four fights by knockout.
Following her win, fhe UFC bantamweight champion gave a shoutout to late wrestler Roddy Piper, thanking him for allowing her to use the “Rowdy” nickname. She had dedicated the fight to him. She also mentioned her father, whose suicide became a storyline leading up to the fight after Correia cited it in trash-talking comments, saying she hoped he and Piper enjoyed watching it together.
