Here Comes A New Challenger: Matches to Make – UFC 190

By Sam Stilson

We all knew how the main event of UFC 190 was going to end. We had it figured out the moment the fight was booked. Yet, somehow Ronda Rousey still managed to wow us all. The women’s bantamweight champion truly has something special…and that’s the ability to get hundreds of thousands of people to sit through not one but two TUF Brazil finals (and pay for the privilege) just to watch her fight. Incredible.

UFC 190 turned out to be a much better card in practice than on paper and most indicators are suggesting it was more successful than UFC 189. Rousey is well on her way to becoming the new GSP, if she hasn’t already surpassed him, and we can likely expect many more ‘RONDA ROUSEY and a bunch of other fighters’ -type fight cards to come.

Now let’s look at what might be next for the main card competitors.

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.

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.

Believe it or not, there are actually sports entities out there who value — or are at least willing to put up with — our opinions on MMA-related matters. I know, right? I’m just as shocked as you.

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…
