Bethe Correia meets Shayna Baszler at UFC 177, but when asked if she ever was to fight UFC Champion Ronda Rousey, Correia said she would not be afraid of her:
“I think they lack of confidence. Ronda believes in herself, and the others get in there afraid of her. I’m not. I’m not afraid of her, said Correia. It’s not that she’s better than the opponents she’s fought, but they don’t believe in themselves. Her look shows it. They don’t feel they are better than Ronda. Ronda has this aura that she’s unbeatable. She needs to face someone that looks into her eyes and says ‘you can’t beat me.’ Everything I do, I do with confidence. I’m not saying I’m better than anyone. She can be more technical than me, but it doesn’t make me feel less confident in myself. I 100 percent believe in everything I do.”
Correia (8-0) has one knockout and 7 decision victories in her MMA career. She joined the UFC in December of 2013 and beat Julie Kedzie via Split decision. She then went onto face and beat Jessamyn Duke via Unanimous decision at UFC 172.
