“Ask and you shall receive.” – Matthew 7:7-8

Ronda Rousey will step into her opponents back yard, as she is expected to take on Bethe Correia in the main event at UFC 190 in Brazil.

The news was reported by Brazilian outlets Globo and Tatame and later confirmed by a number of different outlets.

Following Rousey’s latest victory, she spoke about Correia to Jay Mohr, “I want to go and fight her in Brazil and beat her in her hometown. That would be the best way I could really feel like I’ve vindicated my friends, to go to her hometown and beat her in her hometown and be total Rocky IV on it.”

Rousey (11-0) has completely cleared out her division, beating woman after woman and decisively. Her latest outing was against Cat Zingano, she finished her in just 14-seconds. The bout before that was against Alexis Davis and that bout was finished in 16-seconds. The former Olympian has spent a total of 25-minutes and two seconds.

Correia (9-0) is undefeated in her MMA career and 3-0 inside the Octagon. The Brazilian has had her sights set on Rousey for some time, but had a plan prior to getting to the champ — defeating the rest of her “Horsewomen.” Correia defeated Rousey’s teammates Jessamyn Duke and Shayna Baszler, in her two most recent bouts.

UFC 190 is expected to go down on August 1, 2015 from the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
