Bethe Correia was knocked out with a head kick from former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Holly Holm in the main event of UFC Fight Night: Singapore.
Following her crushing defeat, the fighter issued a statement to her fans via Instagram:
I want to congratulate Holly for the fight. Even though she was coming from three losses she didn't quit and hide, and fought me on the main event. I want to thank all my fans, partners and team. I won't return with the victory I dreamed of, but I return with my head held high with a dream to fight in Asia realized and being a protagonist of the night. A dream a lot of people have but never realized. I can only say this to my fans that like Bethe Correia: I WILL BE BACK STRONGER THAN EVER! YOU CAN BE SURE OF IT!!!!! #betheeffect ##strongwoman #ufcsingapore . . Quero parabenizar a Holly pela luta. Mesmo vindo de 3 derrotas ela não desistiu e nem se escondeu e fez a luta principal comigo. Quero agradecer a todos os meus fãs, parceiros e equipe. Não voltarei com a vitória como sonhava, mas volto de cabeça erguida com mais um sonho realizado em lutar na Ásia e ser a protagonista da noite. Sonho que muitos tem e jamais realizaram. Só posso dizer aos meus fãs que curtem a Bethe Correia: EU VOLTAREI MAIS FORTE DO QUE NUNCA! Podem me aguardar!!!!
Correia current holds a 4-3-1 record in the UFC (10-3-1 overall) and it has been nearly a year since the last time she earned a victory. Correia has previously challenged for the UFC Women’s Bantamweight Title, losing to then champion Ronda Rousey at UFC 190.
As far as her opponent in Holm goes, the win for her ended a three fight losing streak that started back at UFC 196.
