UFC 190: Ronda Rousey vs. Bethe Correia full fight video preview

New, comments

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey will put her strap on the line against undefeated 135-pound contender Bethe Correia in tonight's (Sat., Aug. 1, 2015) UFC 190 pay-per-view (PPV) main event, scheduled to go down inside HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Check out their final (and intense) staredown here.

Rousey (11-0) has not shied away from headlining an event in Brazil, which would give her the opportunity to "vindicate her friends" in hostile territory, a la Rocky IV (see those comments here). "Rowdy" has been gunning for the Brazilian for several months, even demanding the fight from UFC President Dana White.

But the challenger can give as good as she can get.

Correia (9-0) has been talking a substantial amount of trash, calling Rousey a "selfish champion" who cares more about movies than mixed martial arts (MMA). To her credit, "Pitbull" has put her money where her mouth is, defeating the champ's stablemates, Jessamyn Duke and Shayna Baszler, in consecutive fights.

Can she pull off the massive upset?
