Correia wants rematch against Rousey

After being knocked out by Ronda Rousey in just 34 seconds at UFC 190 earlier this month, Bethe Correia has taken to Instagram to challenge the UFC women's bantamweight champion to a rematch in 2016. 

There is a lot of bad blood between the duo, with Correia having said prior to the fight that she hoped Rousey wouldn't "kill herself" if she was handed her first loss at UFC 190, a remark reportedly made in reference to the fact that Rousey's father committed suicide.

Correia was heavily criticised for her remarks, but the Brazilian has asserted that Rousey is no different as the champion also made some sickening comments.

"I was extremely criticized and judged by lack of respect due to a bad interpretation of the current champ," Correia said on Instagram. "All that time I saw the real face of the current champ trying to pose as a saint while she always said publicly that she wanted to make me ‘have a meeting with Jesus’ which was her true intention. The media never gave that much coverage.

"I'd never fight anyone with the intention to kill, break their neck which is something there’s no return from. I wouldn’t joke about it, because wanting to kill someone is not caring about the pain their family would feel!"

Rousey is scheduled to defend her title against Miesha Tate next, but should Correia be granted her rematch, the 32-year-old has vowed to be a lot stronger and smarter about her approach.

"I tell her, I’m here and I’ll fight for a rematch in 2016, stronger, more mature, we’ll see each other again," she said. "I wanted to fight you and I got it. I’ll get that chance again and I’ll have my revenge at the right time!"
