Ronda Rousey Demands To Fight Bethe Correia In Next UFC Title Defense

According to UFC President Dana White, after defeating two of the Four Horsewomen members, Bethe Correia has caught the attention of the UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion in a big way.

White noted during his post-UFC 177 media scrum in Sacramento on Saturday that Ronda Rousey immediately started texting him after Correia defeated Shayna Baszler, demanding that she fight Correia in her next title defense.

“As soon as [Correia] started talking, she texted me and said, ‘I want that fight. I want it now. I want it before someone else beats her’,” said White.

While on the surface it would seem to be an obvious match to make, with the rumors of Gina Carano possibly signing with the UFC in the near future, as well as the upcoming contender match between Cat Zingano and Amanda Nunes at UFC 178, White feels that Rousey has other business to take care of before they give her the Correia fight that she desires.

“I said, ‘Calm down, lady. You’ve got other people to fight. We’ll figure it out.’ There’s a long list for Rousey waiting right now, so we’ll see what happens,” said the UFC President.
