Ronda Rousey to Bethe Correia: I will make sure you feel every moment of the lesson I’m going to teach you.

When Bethe Correia (9-0) made some ill-advised remarks last month in reference to her next opponent, bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey (11-0), she invoked an ire she may not have intended. The two face off on August 1 at UFC 190, and Rousey recently elaborated on her plans for Correia.

Last month, Correia said to Combate:

“Under pressure, (Rousey) is proving weak. When her mom put pressure on her, she ran away from home. When she lost, it was because of drugs. That’s not a superhero. 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.”

Rousey’s father committed suicide when she was a child, following chronic pain from an accident, which Correia claimed afterward to not have known.

Initially, Rousey’s response was this:

Now, it seems Rousey intends not only to be Correia’s comeuppance, but to exact a form of prolonged, painful vengeance on the undefeated Brazilian. Rousey is always a ruthless fighter, but we’re about to see an angry Rousey intent on waging a vendetta. This fight is now about more than defending her title. We anticipate a very brutal lesson is in the cards for Correia.

School is in session at UFC 190 on August 1, 10 pm ET/7 pm PT.
