I guess Bethe Correia missed that bit from Martin Lawrence about getting knocked out.
The former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's bantamweight No. 1 contender was iced by reigning division titleholder Ronda Rousey -- in just 34 seconds -- at the UFC 190 pay-per-view (PPV) event, which took place last Sat. night (Aug. 1, 2015) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (see it again here).
Gone In 34 Seconds!
Watch Ronda Rousey vs. Bethe Correia full fight video highlights from last night in UFC 190's main event inside HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, featuring the incredible 34-second first round knockout finish.
"I promise I will fight for the belt next year. In 2016, I want to write a different story. I want, above all things, to be respected. I want a triumphant return. I won't accept ending 2016 without an UFC belt on my waist. Everything I want, I get. That will be my battle. If she still has the belt next year, I will meet her again. I will get that belt. I think Ronda will be dethroned and I hope I get to do it. Everybody loses at one point."
Conveniently enough, the belt is already in Brazil.
It's not as outrageous as it sounds when you consider that A) Rousey has pretty much cleaned out the division and B) Miesha Tate is getting a third crack at the crown despite coming up short in two separate attempts, one of which nearly cost her an arm.
But if you thought the odds were lopsided before...
