With tension growing for months, Ronda Rousey and title challenger Bethe Correia, will finally get to go this weekend. Both fighters are undefeated and looking to take that 0 from the other. Correia has fired the most shots to get under Ronda’s skin, and has definitely been successful. No one other than Meisha Tate, has fired the champ up as much as Correia has. She is using trash talk to distract Rousey, which is definitely a hard task. Correia is a striker with clean, crisp punches. She has also shown that she can hang on the ground, and has solid grappling. With that said, the Brazilian hasn’t exactly shown that she’s ready for the champion.
After defeating Rousey’s training partners, who aren’t exactly top competition, Correia earned herself a title shot. Hopefully, we will get to see more of Rousey’s boxing in this bout. We’ve all seen that Rousey has the largest advantage on the ground with anyone she faces, and I wouldn’t be surprised if she decides to beat the Brazilian at her own game. Correia will look to avoid the ground with Rousey, and keep the fight standing, but expect to see Rousey get the fight to the ground and dominate. Will we see another quick win for Rousey? Looking forward to see how this bout plays out.
