Bethe Correia made it two straight over members of “The Four Horsewomen” stable that features UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, defeating Shayna Baszler at UFC 177 Saturday night.
Moments after scoring the win, Correia let it be known that she wants Rousey next.
“I want to leave a message for Ronda,” Correia said. “I am the one that’s gonna take that belt. I am the one that’s gonna beat her.”
Correia (9-0) earned a win over Jessamyn Duke earlier this year and signaled that one of the four ladies had been taken care of. Baszler (15-9) was in attendance for that fight and immediately called for a fight with the Brazilian.
After controlling the first round with her submission and ground game, Baszler was stuck against the fence in the second. Correia continued to tee off, forcing referee John McCarthy to step in and call an end to the fight.
Correia motioned for the title after the excellent striking display. This was Baszler’s official Octagon debut after competing on The Ultimate Fighter.
