Ronda Rousey responds to Bethe Correia’s ‘suicide’ comments

by Anton Tabuena

SB Nation

Ronda Rousey’s father committed suicide when she was young, and she’s obviously not pleased with Correia’s comments on the topic.

Bethe Correia is the next challenger to Ronda Rousey’s title and she has been upping her trash talk the past few months. She recently stated that she only needed 2 punches to finish the fight, “one to rip off her mole and the other to actually knock her out.” But instead of ending on that note, she took it too far with a tasteless remark about suicide.

Apart from the short quotes mentioning suicide on the article, Correia also brought up the topic more than once in that lengthy interview with Combate.

“I will give her a rematch if she doesn’t cry too much,” Bethe said as translated by Bloody Elbow’s Lucas Rezende. “She can’t take the pressure. I will give her the chance to get the belt back. Please, don’t kill yourself, don’t commit suicide, because I will give you the rematch.”

That’s not the type of topic that should ever be used on fight promotion or in any type of smack talk. To add to that, Rousey also had to deal with that experience growing up, with her father committing suicide when she was just eight.

As expected, she was not at all happy with Correia after hearing about her comments.


Rousey will face Correia at UFC 190 on August 1.
