Bethe Correia Wants Rematch With Ronda Rousey


Bethe Correia is coming off of a majority draw against Marion Reneau at UFC Fight Night 106.

Majority draw aside, the Brazilian contender would like another fight with former UFC Women’s bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey. Things didn't exactly go Bethe's way the first time around/

"I hope she would come back because I want a rematch with her,” Correia said to MMA Fighting. "We have unfinished business, things to settle. But I believe she won’t come back. I always said she was too vain and wasn't mentally strong enough to lose. I think her vanity was an issue against Amanda. She thought she could go back and trade with her. She’s too vain to accept the defeat and start over. Unfortunately, I don’t think I’ll have the rematch, but I’d love that."

Rousey defeated Correia in their first meeting by first round knockout at UFC 190. Whether Rousey returns to the Octagon or not, the former title challenger says their rivalry will never end.

"I’m her rival, I’m her enemy in the sport and in the personal area for everything that happened between us, but even enemies respect each other,” the Brazilian said. "The way she lost, I felt what she felt. It was similar to what I went through, a sub-minute loss, being caught in a way that you lose control.”

Ronda hasn’t competed since suffering a first round TKO loss to Amanda Nunes at UFC 207.
