According to a report by Tatame, UFC female bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey will defend her title this August against Bethe Correia in Brazil.
The card would likely be UFC 190 and would also include Mauricio “Shogun” Rua vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira. Rua and Nogueira’s brother, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, are the coaches for the fourth season of The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil.
Rousey has labeled Correia as a potential challenger after the Brazilian scores wins over Shayna Baszler and Jessamyn Duke – two of Rousey’s “Four Horsewomen” stablemates.
“Rowdy” scored a quick victory over Cat Zingano recently, but mentioned a desire to take time off from training and fighting through the early portion of 2015.
