Earlier at the Inquisitr, it was reported that the undefeated UFC women’s bantamweight champion, Ronda Rousey, has found her next opponent for UFC 190, Bethe Correia, who is also undefeated. What is unique about this match-up is how personal it has become. As a matter of fact, Rousey has directly told Correia that, “If you f**k with my family, you are f**ked!”
Now the bad blood from the grudge has intensified even more. Ronda Rousey made a statement, meant to be a jab to Bethe Correia’s pride, saying, “I got 99 problems but a Bethe ain’t one!”
According to an article by FOX Sports, it reports that Ronda Rousey is making her rounds for her latest media tour, promoting her recently announced fight at UFC 190 in Brazil against Bethe Correia. On Monday, March 23, Rousey’s tour made its way to a guest appearance on The View. Despite some jet lag and lack of sleep, Rousey wasted no time verbally assaulting Correia with a play on a quote made famous by Jay-Z.
“I got 99 problems but a Bethe ain’t one!”
The play on the quote delighted the crowd to no end, especially the fact that Correia’s first name of Bethe is phonetically pronounced as “Betch.” When spoken quickly enough, it sounds as if Bethe sounds more like the word “b**ch.”
Despite the fact that Ronda Rousey’s has agreed to fight Bethe Correia, there is an argument among UFC fans, as well as the MMA community, that Correia doesn’t truly belong in the same cage as Rousey. For starters, the combined UFC accomplishments of Correia’s last three opponents are one win and six losses. This is why the odds are highly in Rousey’s favor, somewhere in the neighborhood 15-to-1.
So how did Beth Correia get this title shot in the first place? According to Bleacher Report, Correia has instigated a two-part plan to achieve her goals, which includes bombardments of smack talk and destroying Ronda Rousey’s friends and training partners (who Rousey sees as family which resulted in the infamous “You are f**ked!” statement). Maybe this is the reason, despite all the verbal jabs, Rousey is not letting her guard down.
