Don’t make challanges personal against someone Bigger and Better than your are….
Even if you’re a woman….
This time, it took Ronda Rousey all of 34 seconds to remind everyone that the sport has never seen anything like her.
She retained her UFC bantamweight title with a knockout victory over Bethe Correia, who made the mistake of making the bout personal for Rousey by bringing up the suicide of the champ’s father. With Rousey fighting in Rio de Janeiro a day after the death of her idol, Rowdy Roddy Piper, Correia had no more of a chance than any other Rousey opponent of late. In fact, her last three wins have taken 64 seconds (Cat Zingano by submission in 14 seconds and Alexis Davis by KO in 16).
Rousey has five first-round wins, the most in UFC history.

“I feel it’s a challenge,” Rousey said after the fight. “I want to silence every criticism one at a time, and I think I silenced one tonight.”
