VFD Sports Marketing Presents: UFC 190 Recap: Ronda Rousey Rules
“Rowdy” Ronda Rousey did not need any more fuel added to her fire when “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, her namesake, passed away last week, inspiring her to dedicate her UFC 190 knockout of Bethe Correia to the deceased professional wrestler. When the dust cleared and the talk stopped, it was a different ending to a familiar fight. Ronda went right at Bethe and beat her at her own game. She knocked her out and yelled Bethe’s taunt from days earlier at the fallen Brazilian: “don’t cry,” shutting her down.
It’s clear that there’s no competition in the division for Rousey besides a possible dream matchup against Cris Cyborg. The issue is that Ronda is only getting better as was shown on Saturday night. How competitive can anyone be with Ronda Rousey? Who knows, but it seems like for someone to get outside of a minute with her is a victory.
In the co-main event, Shogun Rua defeated ‘Lil Nog’ Antonio Rogerio Nogueira in a unanimous decision. After losing the first round, Shogun came back and outpointed Nogueira to get the victory.
Best of the rest:
