Whether she knows it or not, Ronda Rousey apparently taught a major life lesson during her victorious fight against Bethe Correia Saturday night.
The caption of a now-viral picture featuring both Ronda and Bethe long before the fight started speaks volumes and teaches an important lesson about the difference between someone with confidence and someone with insecurities.
“Confidence is silent. Insecurities are loud.”

In the photo, Ronda Rousey is simply giving her future opponent a “death state.” Even though she did not say anything, it was apparently clear that Ronda’s momentary silence had absolutely nothing to do with her being speechless.
The 28-year-old UFC star simply wanted to allow her performance during the highly-anticipated battle to do the talking for her. Fans and critics that watched Ronda Rousey shut Bethe Correia and shut her up within just 34 seconds will likely agree that her approach was much more effective than the intimidation tactics attempted by Bethe.
Quite a few people re-tweeted and shared the “Confidence is silent” quote on Twitter Sunday – showing that Ronda Rousey’s message was heard loud and clear.

Confidence is silent, insecurities are loud. Be confident in yourself or who will?

Long before the fight started, Ronda Rousey made headlines during an interview that allowed her to open up about her physique and why she doesn’t feel like it is “masculine” at all.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Rousey made it clear that she was proud of her body because every single muscle in it has a purpose and she refuses to be a “do nothing bitch,” or “DNB.” That label has been posted quite a few times on Twitter within the last week thanks to Ronda Rousey.
According to Bleacher Report, Ronda Rousey will next face an old rival, Miesha Tate for the third time. Perhaps Rousey will be able to teach Tate a lesson about confidence firsthand the same way that she did Bethe Correia.
