All of the trash talk leading up to UFC 190 did great for not only generating buzz around the event but also fired up UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey. Bethe Correia found out this the hard way as she was finished early in the first round of their fight.

Correia said some serious things leading up the fight, but now she’s claiming that she didn’t actually mean those things. Things like Rousey committing suicide after Corriera would beat her, Rousey’s father committing suicide and other things.

Just weeks following the fight, Correia is tired of being criticized for making those comments.

She wrote the following on her Instagram account when she responded to an article on

I was extremely criticized and judged by lack of respect due to a bad interpretation of the current champ. All that time I saw the real face of the current champ trying to pose as a saint while she always said publicly that she wanted to make me “have a meeting with Jesus” which was her true intention. The media never gave that much coverage. I’d never would fight anyone with the intention to kill, break their neck which is something there’s no return from. I wouldn’t joke about it, because wanting to kill someone is not caring about the pain their family would feel!

So I tell @rondarousey I’m here and I’ll fight for a rematch in 2016, stronger, more mature, we’ll see each other again!

I wanted to fight you and I got it. I’ll get that chance again and I’ll have my revenge at the right time!

UFC 190 took place Saturday, August 1st, 2015 at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Now, Rousey will meet Miesha Tate for the third time at an unknown date for the UFC bantamweight championship. As far as Correia goes, there’s no word on when she’ll fight again.
