Bethe Correia: 'I always said Ronda Rousey didn't have a strong psychological side'

Jason Silva-USA TODAY Sports

Told ya' so!

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's bantamweight contender Bethe Correia knows a thing or two about ex-division champion Ronda Rousey, having fought the "Rowdy" one at UFC 190 back in late 2015. Prior to their 135-pound showdown, "Pitbull" warned the mixed martial arts media (MMA) her opponent was mentally weak.

And now she has the proof.

"Unfortunately, I didn't get the win when I face Ronda so I could show everyone that I was telling the truth," Correia told Combate (via Bloody Elbow). "I always said Ronda didn't have a strong psychological side and the proof to that is that she's been missing ever since she lost. Nobody knows what is going on with her. I don't know how she is or what her reasons were, but I don't think she's doing all right."

Correia was squashed by Rousey via first-round knockout.

While the Brazilian gears up for her Jessica Eye fight at the UFC 203 pay-per-view (PPV) event, which takes place this Saturday night (Sept. 10, 2016) in Cleveland, Ohio, Rousey remains on the sidelines as she recovers from her Holly Holm loss nearly one year ago.

Any chance we'll see these two run it back in 2017?
