Rousey knocks out Correia in just 34 seconds

Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey took it a little easy on Bethe Correia in her home country of Brazil on the main event of the UFC 190 Pay Per View. Rousey took only 34 seconds to beat her opponent, four seconds longer than her last two victims combined.

A right hook to the temple with her back up against the cage ended Correia’s night. For good measure Rousey landed a short left to her face as she was falling. Referee “Big” John McCarthy had no choice but to step in and call a stoppage. It was a pretty simple story of the fight. The two charged at each other, Rousey landed the harder shots, moved Correia up against the cage and capped off a great combination with a shot the side of her head and it was all over.

Correia, who went into her first-ever title fight with an undefeated record, had it taken away. She was made to look foolish after all of the guarantees of victory and the smack talk.

There is no woman fighter even close to Rousey in the UFC. Calling her dominant does not even do her proper justice. She has not only beaten every top women’s fighter there is, she has embarrassed them. Eight of her professional opponent did not even last a round. Her last three fights have combined for just 64 ticks of the clock.

It has not even been close.

And it is not for a lack of talented competition. Correia, Cat Zingano, Alexis Davis, Sara McMann, Miesha Tate and Liz Carmouche could all have been the face of women’s mixed martial arts had it not been for Rousey. Those women are great in their own right. But just nowhere near the level Rousey is.

We truly are witnessing absolute greatness.

You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
