The Internet’s Best Parodies of Ronda Rousey vs. Bethe Correia (UFC 190 Results)

By now, you’ve all surely heard what Ronda Rousey did to poor Bethe Correia at UFC 190 on Saturday. The champ humiliated her, simply put, beating the Brazilian power puncher at her own game and flattening her with a right hand 34 seconds into the first round. As she has done countless times in the past, Rousey managed to both meet and defy our expectations in the method and ease in which she put away a clearly outmatched opponent.

But rather than do our usual post-fight recap, we’re just going to compile what have been a fantastic series of reactions to the Rousey-Correia fight, starting with the GTA 5-style “wasted” treatment above. Check out the rest after the jump, but do it quick, because these will likely be taken down within the hour.


‘UFC 190: Rousey vs. That Poor Lady’ Weigh-Ins Results: Everyone on Point for Rio

At approximately midnight tomorrow night, Ronda Rousey is going to run roughshod over poor, sweet, delusional Bethe Correia. We all know it, and anyone who says otherwise is a crazy person. But before they fight, they first had to weigh-in and stare longingly into each others eyes at the HSBC Arena in Rio De Janeiro.

Suffice it to say, I think the staredown lived up to expectations, so check it out above, then head after the jump for complete UFC 190 weigh-in results.


VIDEO: Is Ronda Rousey vs. Bethe Correia The Biggest Title Fight Mismatch Ever? CagePotato Weighs In

(“Well, in my professional opinion…*fart sounds* *hums Batman theme*”)

Once again, our friends at Owned Sports have called upon us, as well as Zane Simon, Sydnie Jones, Erik Fontanez, and Tommy Messano, to answer the tough questions surrounding UFC 190. On today’s agenda: Is Ronda Rousey vs. Bethe Correia the biggest mismatch ever?

While undeniably a squash match, we argued that Rousey vs. Correia lies in the Jon Jones vs. Chael Sonnen territory of title fight mismatches — a fight between an ultra dominant champion and a brazen, yet almost completely outgunned challenger which has been (underwhelmingly) sold using the classic “grudge match” storyline. That was until yesterday, however, when new evidence surfaced and proved outright that, yes, this is in fact the biggest mismatch of all time.

Check out the video after the jump, then head over to for more videos on daily fantasy sports.


Who (or What) Is to Blame for UFC 190′s Nonexistent Marketing Campaign?

Did Ronda Rousey anger the UFC gods, or is somebody in the marketing department getting fired?

What the hell is Rousey, the UFC’s cash cow up until a quaint little Irishman stole her limelight, doing headlining a barely advertised card in Brazil after about a thousand UFC events in a few weeks time? It makes me wonder if this is intentional, or if this is a marketing blunder.

Let’s put our tinfoil hats on for a bit and pretend like we can get to the bottom of something using pure speculation, and very little else.


VIDEO: Ronda Rousey Wins “Best Fighter” at ESPY’s, Uses Opportunity to Blast Floyd Mayweather

Look, I know that any discussion of Ronda Rousey vs. Floyd Mayweather represents the absolute nadir of the MMA vs. Boxing debate and perhaps even sports journalism, but game simply must recognize game here.

At last night’s ESPY’s, Rousey took home the award for “Best Fighter” — beating out a field that included Mayweather, Terence Crawford, and Donald Cerrone — as well as the “Best Female Athlete” award. While discussing her big win on the red carpet, Rousey used the opportunity to eviscerate the pound-for-pound boxing king for his history of domestic…let’s call them “issues.”

“I wonder how Floyd feels being beat by a woman for once,” Rousey said. “I’d like to see him pretend to not know who I am now.”

#BOOMHEADSHOT. Next up on Rousey’s call out list, Mike Tyso-nevermind.

In other ESPY news, Caitlyn Jenner was bestowed with the Arthur Ashe Award for courage, and everyone was too busy talking about how she looked/sounded to consider whether or not it might be a bit presumptuous to give a courage award to someone who recklessly killed a woman in a car crash earlier this year. Yay Hollywood.


Supercut of the Day: RONDA THROWS PEOPLE!

You know, there’s something oddly therapeutic about watching Ronda Rousey judo slam people for 4 straight minutes (all the emphasis on watching). Maybe it’s just the hardcore feminist in me getting a kick out of seeing a 200+ pound man effortlessly thrown through the air, then dropped like a sack of flour by a much smaller woman, or maybe it’s something simpler, like the satisfying “THWACK” sound they all make upon hitting the canvas as a shell of their former selves.

In either case, this recently unearthed supercut by Youtuber NastyaSiberia captures the essence of Rousey’s devastating judo game like no other. A note to all MMA reporters: Unless you want a broken rib, forgo the harai goshi demonstrations and stick to asking Rousey questions about her sex policy on fight week.


Bethe Correia Makes Suicide Joke About Ronda Rousey, Ironically Signing Her Own Death Warrant in the Process [UPDATED]

(via Fox Sports.)

When women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey was just eight years old, she lost her father, Ron, to suicide. Ron had been diagnosed with a rare blood disorder sometime earlier, and was given the grim prospect of spending what few remaining years he had left paralyzed and in constant need of assistance. Not wanting to become both an emotional and financial burden to his family, he chose to end his life with his memory intact.

Ron’s decision was one of the only forms of suicide that to even the most close-minded of us can empathize with, perhaps because of how selfless an act it is in cases like his. While discussing her father on Howard Stern, even Rousey herself stated that she completely understood his reasons for what he did and that, were the same circumstances were to befall her, she would arguably do the same thing.

But despite ultimately agreeing with her father’s decision, Rousey obviously remains sensitive to the subject of suicide to this day, which is what makes bantamweight title challenger Bethe Correia‘s recent comments about her all the more unforgivable.

Details after the jump.

Six Things More Likely to Occur Than Ronda Rousey Losing To Bethe Correia

(Props: Fox Sports)

By CP Reader Ramsey O’Shea

If the circulating reports have any truth to them, it looks like Ronda Rousey will make her next title defense against Bethe Correia in the main event of UFC 190 on August 1st. According to my local gambling expert, Vegas oddsmakers should list Rousey as something around a kajillion-to-one favorite over her Brazilian opponent out of the gate, a betting line which will only continue to swing in Rousey’s favor as fight night approaches.

This is not what you’d call a gambler’s paradise, folks, so much so that I asked the top statistician I know to punch up some numbers and find me a handful things more likely to occur than a Bethe Correia win at UFC 190. Here’s what he came up with…


Ronda Rousey: The Cleaner

By Chris Huntemann, Columnist

Given that it’s tax season, it’s a good time to remember that are there three guarantees in life: death, taxes and Ronda Rousey once again showing why she is the best female fighter on the planet with a first-round demolition of her opponent.

Rousey’s performance at UFC 184 last month was her finest to date. She submitted Cat Zingano, widely regarded as Rousey’s biggest challenge, in 14 seconds. While Rousey was aided by an absolutely horrible strategy by Zingano, her virtuoso performance led to another discussion of who has what it takes to dethrone Rousey. It also led to a ridiculous conversation of whether or not Rousey could compete against and defeat male fighters in the UFC’s bantamweight division. The less time spent on that absurd notion that accomplishes nothing but trying to discredit the great fighter Rousey is, the better.
