Ronda Rousey returns for another high-profile octagon bout when she takes on underdog Brazilian Bethe Correia in a bantamweight championship fight in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in UFC 190.
Rousey, 29, has an 11-0 record with two knockouts and nine submissions and enters at 135 pounds. The Southern California native has vowed to end this fight quickly. She promised Correia her "most devastating loss" following comments by Correia that involved Rousey "killing herself" if she lost. Rousey's father committed suicide when she was 8 years old.
Odds makers have Rousey favored at 14-1.
Correia, nicknamed "The Pitbull," has a 9-0 record, with two knockouts and seven wins by decision, and weighed in at 134 pounds. The 32-year-old is from Natal, Brazil, which is roughly 1,300 miles from Rio. Yet, she will almost certainly have the crowd on her side against the dominant American.
The actual start of the Rousey-Correia fight should take place at about 1:15 a.m. ET.
The other featured matchup includes a pair of light-heavyweight Brazilians in a rematch: Mauricio "Shogun" Rua (22-10) vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira (21-6). Rua, 33, and Nogueira, 39, fought in 2005 with Rua winning winning the memorable fight in a unanimous decision.
