Ronda Rousey to Bethe Correia after UFC 190 knockout: 'Don't cry'
Sunday August 2nd, 2015

Ronda Rousey had some words for Bethe Correia after knocking her out at UFC 190.

Sportsnet's Mike Johnston reports that as Rousey stood over Correia, she told her rival, ‘Don't cry.’

The trash talk echoed what Correia said to Rousey at their weigh-ins for the fight, when the two stared each other down.

Bad blood has developed between Rousey and Correia since May, when Correia said she hoped Rousey “wouldn't kill herself” after losing their fight. Rousey, whose father died by suicide when she was a child, shot back on Twitter, saying that her father “would be with her” as she fought.

On SI Now this week, Rousey called the fight the “most important of her career,” and explained Correia's comments were “tactless” and made things personal.

She certainly backed it all up, in 34 seconds.
