Correia Hopes She Gets Chance To Punch “Cupcake”

Bethe Correia has been picking apart members of the “Four Horsewomen” stable one-by-one, hoping to work her way to a title fight with UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey.

Correia, though, received her own call-out recently when Miesha Tate made it known that she would like to challenge the unbeaten fighter. The Brazilian responded in an interview with FOX Sports.

“I have no idea why Tate decided to appear in this history,” Correia said. “But everyone knows me and knows how I am, I never back away from a fight. I am Bethe Correia.

“I never run from a challenge. Whoever challenges me make sure to use a good mouthpiece because I’ll answer to it in the Octagon with punches to the mouth.”

Correia (9-0) has strong together three straight wins since joining the UFC last year, topping veteran Julie Kedzie and “Horsewomen” Jessamyn Duke and Shayna Baszler this year.

“I’ll be the next UFC champion,” she said. “I’ll fight anyone they want me to and I’ll beat all of them. If it’s up to me, the check for ‘Performance of the Night’ bonus will have my name on it in my next fight.”
