Bethe Correia Ready To Be “People’s Champ”

Ronda Rousey

Bethe Correia believes she is the one to end Ronda Rousey’s reign over the UFC female bantamweight division.

Correia, who flew to Los Angeles from Brazil this past weekend to see Rousey vs. Cat Zingano, stated that the champion is “really selfish.”

“She did a good thing that was bringing the UFC the female fights,” Correia said (thanks to MMAFighting.com for the comments). “She convinced Dana (White) to do it. But I don’t think she’s a good champion. I think she’s really selfish. She just things about herself, about making movies, dressing well, showing up.

“I’m not gonna be like this. I’m gonna be a real champ. I’m gonna do something for the people. I’m gonna be the people’s champ.”

Like past challengers Sara McMann and Cat Zingano, Correia (9-0) sports an unbeaten record. Rousey made mention of that during her post-fight interview, saying she would like to take the “0” off her record. During her time in the UFC, Correia has defeated Rousey’s “Four Horsewomen” stablemates Jessamyn Duke and Shayna Baszler.

“I’m waiting for the UFC to decide, I’m ready,” she said. “I’ve done everything that’s possible in my way.”
