The MMA world is shocked by the trash talking coming from Brazilian Beth Correia.
Correia (9-0-0) faces off against undefeated UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey (11-0-0) in the upcoming UFC 190.
Correia had plenty of ammunition, using facts from Rousey’s autobiography against her.
“I want to knock her out,” said Correia to Brazilian MMA site Combate, “to show to everyone that she is a lie. “She wants to stand up with me? Let’s see. I want to humiliate her and show the world she has no MMA. She is focused on movies, books …
“Under pressure she is proving weak. When her Mum put pressure on her, she ran away from home. When she lost, it was because of drugs. That’s not a superhero. She is not mentally healthy; she needs to take care of herself. She is winning, so everybody is around her cheering her up. But when she realises she is not everything that she believes @RondaRousey Never knew what happened to ur dad. I’m humble enough to ask u for forgiveness. Family is a godly bless to me. See u in #UFC190.

Correia’s suicide gaffe was a low-blow. Rousey’s father killed himself when Rousey was only young. His death rocked his wife and young daughter.
Rousey laid into Correia on twitter: @bethecorreia: suicide is no joke or selling point. My father will be with me the day I hand you the comeuppance you deserve.

Correia realised her mistake and twittered back: @RondaRousey: Never knew what happened to your Dad. I’m humble enough to ask you for forgiveness. Family is a godly bless to me. see you in #UFC190.

Someone should have told Bethe Correia Ronda Rousey thrives on animosity before a fight. UFC 190 is going to explode!
