Bethe Correia made some choice remarks concerning Ronda Rousey during a recent interview.
Correia, who will challenge Rousey for the UFC female bantamweight title in August, stated that she hopes Rousey “doesn’t commit suicide” after she beats her.
While touring to promote her book, Rousey took a moment to respond via Twitter to the remarks. Her father committed suicide when the former Olympian was a youngster.
@bethecorreia suicide is no joke or selling point. My father will be with me the day I hand you the comeuppance you deserve.

Correia’s comments came on the heels of sections in Rousey’s book in which she details her rough life after the Olympics. “Rowdy” admitted drug use during those times.
