Revenge! Disrespected Bethe Correia is still mad, calls out Ronda Rousey camp for neck-breaking comments

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Bethe Correia simply doesn't know when to let it go.

Several days after Ronda Rousey beat her down in less than one minute (watch video highlights here) at UFC 190 on Aug. 1, 2015, the Brazilian bomber started the trash talk once again, claiming she could defeat the dominant champion in a rematch.

Now, it seems "Pitbull" is trying to turn the public relations table on "Rowdy," taking to Instagram to call out everyone who criticized her for her suicide comments toward Rousey, but failed to do the same against Judoka after her "come to Jesus meeting" comments.

As Correia sees it, once Rousey's mentor, "Judo" Gene Lebell declared on "The MMA Hour" that his star pupil told him that she wanted to break the Brazilian's neck, then her true, evil intentions were revealed.

Check it out:

"I was extremely criticized and judged by lack of respect due to a bad interpretation of the current champ. 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 would 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! So I tell @rondarousey I'm here and I'll fight for a rematch in 2016, stronger, more mature, we'll see each other again! 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!"

So much hostility.

While a "come to Jesus meeting" doesn't necessarily mean wanting to kill someone or break their neck -- as opposed to having a discussion to talk discipline or resolution for one's actions or words -- Lebell 's revelation clearly added more spice to the simmering pot.

While there have been some things lost in translation lately, Correia now understands what it's like to draw the ire of Rousey loud and clear ... and she doesn't approve of it one bit.

Too bad she couldn't do anything about it.
