Ronda Rousey Responds and Bethe Correia Apologizes for Suicide Remark

UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey wasn’t appreciative of Bethe Correia’s recent suicide remark.

Ronda Rousey UFC 184 weigh-in“When she feels my pressure, I want to see her reaction. She is not mentally healthy. She needs to take care of herself. She is winning, so everybody is around her cheering her up, but when she realizes she is not everything that she believes she is, I don’t know what might happen. I hope she does not kill herself later on (laughs),” Correia said during an interview with Combate.

Rousey’s father committed suicide after suffering a debilitating back injury when she was eight.
