There aren’t many UFC or MMA events that are headlined by a women’s fight, but Ronda Rousey’s dominance is drawing all the attention whenever she steps into the ring. This Saturday, August 1, UFC 190 will feature the unbeaten phenom defending her Bantamweight Title against the No. 5 ranked women’s fighter in the world, Bethe Correia, in her home country of Brazil.
Rousey is a perfect 11-0, but her personality has brought her to the next level of superstardom in appearances over major media outlets. Along with an appearance and an award-winning night at the ESPYs, Rousey has made cameo appearances in movies like “Entourage,” “Expendables 3” and “Furious Seven.” None of this has affected her place in the ring, however, as she is must-watch television and always winning with ease. Correia is a perfect 9-0-0 and is more of a striker compared to Rousey’s grappling and submission style, so it’ll be an intriguing clash of two styles in Rio de Janeiro, to go along with other high-profile matches on the men’s side.
The top men’s match will pit two Brazilian natives against each other, Mauricio “Shogun” Rua and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira. Shogun enters this anticipated match with a 22-10 record, while Nogueira comes into this one at 21-6. Other matches include Glaico “Nego” Franca vs. Fernando “Acougueiro” Bruno, Reginaldo Vieira vs. Dileno Lopes, Stefan “Skyscraper” Struve vs. Minotauro Nogueira, Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva vs. Soa “The Hulk” Palelei and Claudia Gadelha vs. Jessica Aguilar.
