Undefeated UFC women’s bantamweight contender Bethe Correia (9-0) has been calling out reigning champion Ronda Rousey (11-0) since her arrival in the UFC in December 2013.

09b-Beth-Correira-Shayna-Baszler-UFC-177-wAfter defeating veteran Julie Kedzie in her promotional debut at UFC Fight Night 33, Correia convincingly beat two of Rousey’s training partners: Jessamyn Duke and Shayna Baszler. Following each win, she targeted Rousey in her post-fight interview.

At UFC 190 on Aug. 1, Correia will get the title fight she’s been asking for, but some believe the Brazilian talked her way into title contention.

“I’ve won my fights fighting. I didn’t do it talking. I fought,” said Correia during a recent press conference announcing the event.

“Who at this moment deserves the fight more than I do? The only person in the UFC that has three wins in a row who hasn’t had a chance, who has asked for it, it’s me. I don’t see any other person in the UFC who deserves it more than I do,” she added.

Only one of the two unbeaten fighters will emerge from the fight with their undefeated record intact, and Correia is convinced it will be her.

“I’m going to beat Ronda. I’m going to make her feel the weight of my hand,” said Correia. “She gets away from striking. She doesn’t like it. You’ve never seen Ronda get jabbed in a fight. She’s going to try to get away from me.”

UFC 190 takes place at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro. It will be the first time Rousey has fought in Brazil in her mixed martial arts career.

    One word, delusional.

    • TRT-rex

      So do you expect her to say “I’m gonna let Ronda arm bar me in 10 seconds”??? It’s called being confident in yourself, regardless of the challenge ahead. It’s how all MMA fighters should think!! I think your delusional

      • Don Lee

        Go piss up a rope

        • GoalieSwagger

          TRT-rex is bang on. What’s the point of fighting if you dont believe you are going to win. If the thinks any other way, she’s already lost.

          • Don Lee

            I agree you should be confident. My response to T Rex is him calling me delusional.

      • Aaron Gustaveson

        You cant be confident BECAUSE you are delusional?

  • SlickRick

    I agree with Don Lee. She may be “confident” as others in this forum mention, but the delusional side of her is her unwillingness to a acknowledge Rousey’s skill set. To confidentaly state Rousey will feel the weight of her hand, when she lacks any punching power, let alone, Rousey giving her the chance to do so….is straight up unrealistic….or better said, delusional.

    Fighting, talking, who cares? At least she makes 135.

  • BinCL
