Welcome to FightLine’s live coverage of UFC 190: Rousey vs. Correia.

Tonight’s card comes to us from the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, with bouts airing on UFC Fight Pass, FOX Sports 1 and pay-per-view.

In the main event, Ronda Rousey defends her bantamweight title against fellow unbeaten Bethe Correia. Rousey has finished each of her last three opponents in a total of 96 seconds, besting Cat Zingano, Alexis Davis and Sara McMann.

Correia, meanwhile, holds wins over Rousey’s teammates Jessamyn Duke and Shayna Baszler. She vaulted herself into contention by calling out “Rowdy,” who has now promised to honor “Rowdy” Roddy Piper with her performance. The pro wrestling icon passed away recently.

The card will also feature Mauricio “Shogun” Rua facing Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, the finals from The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 4, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira vs. Stefan Struve, Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva battling Soa Palelei and Claudia Gadelha facing UFC newcomer Jessica Aguilar.

On the FS1 prelims, Demian Maia tries to stop the win streak of the red-hot Neil Magny, while Rafael Cavalcante goes up against Patrick Cummins. Also, Warlley Alves faces Nordine Taleb and Iuri Alcantara meets Leandro Issa.

The two Fight Pass bouts will include Vitor Miranda vs. Clint Hester and Hugo Viana vs. Guido Cannetti.

Now, on to the action! Remember to keep hitting “refresh” for the latest results:


Hugo Viana vs. Guido Cannetti

We begin the night in the bantamweight division with Brazilian Hugo Viana (8-2) taking on Guido Cannetti (6-2).

Round 1: Viana finds his mark here early, catching Cannetti and trying to follow up. Big spinning low-kick by Cannetti and they have a nice leg-lock situation going here in the early stages. Viana spins and takes the back, landing some solid hammer-fists. Knees to the body and Viana resorts back to the clinch. The ref steps in and separates them with a minute left. Superman punch by Viana misses.

FightLine scores the round 10-9 for Viana

Round 2: Takedown for Cannetti, much to the surprise of Viana. The Brazilian was wobbled by the head-kick from Cannetti, but he appears to have recovered. Viana high-kicks his way up and out, regaining the clinch against the fence and scoring with a single-leg takedown. Swift body-lock takedown for Cannetti, but he’s unable to do anything with it. Another head-kick attempt is blocked this time by Viana. Takedown for Viana, but a high guard by Cannetti is keeping him from absorbing damage. Viana changes position and lands with hammer-fists, posturing up and doing major damage now.

FightLine scores the round 10-9 for Viana

Round 3: Viana working hard for the takedown, but he’s eating several knees to the body for his effort. He gets Cannetti down, but only for about a second, as he pops right back up. More of Viana grinding on him inside the clinch against the fence, and they finally separate with two-plus minutes left. Cannetti with a big head-kick and he follows up with stiff rights, but Viana gets a quick takedown and regains the advantage. Takedown for Cannetti, but he can’t keep “Wolverine” there. He scores again with another takedown in the final seconds.

FightLine scores the round 10-9 for Cannetti

Guido Cannetti def. Hugo Viana via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28)

Clint Hester vs. Vitor Miranda

We’ll conclude the early Fight Pass prelims with middleweights Clint Hester (11-4) and Vitor Miranda (10-4).

Round 1: Hester keeping Miranda at bay with his wrestling, scoring a takedown. Miranda, though, reverses and is on top, doing damage with heavy, heavy lefts. He’s peppering him with quick shots to the face, really imposing his will on Hester here. Big cut has been opened up over the eye of Hester from the shots. He’s working for a potential head-and-arm choke but the round comes to an end, saving Hester.

FightLine scores the round 10-9 for Miranda

Round 2: Hester working hard for the takedown again this round, but Miranda denies it and sweeps him off his feet with a swift kick. More kicks to the lead leg by “Lex Luthor,” as Hester tries a spinning attack. Hester is the more aggressive fighter, moving forward constantly. He shoots for another takedown and Miranda elects to just pull guard more or less and hammer away to the body. Back to the feet and a knee just misses by the Brazilian. Miranda on top, pounding away and this might get a stoppage. He’s really working over Hester with more than half the round remaining. A series of elbows and Herb Dean steps in, calling a stop to this one.

Vitor Miranda def. Clint Hester via TKO (strikes) at 2:38 of Round 2

UFC female bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey already has the quickest championship victory to her credit inside the Octagon.

To go along with that 14-second record-breaking performance, “Rowdy” also has a 16-second win on her resume.

So, what can the former bronze medalist from the Olympics do for an encore to those impressive feats? She explained during a recent appearance on “UFC Tonight” to promote her UFC 190 fight vs. Bethe Correia.

“With me winning in the most fantastical way,” she said. “I want fans to go ‘Wow, what just happened there? I want to watch it all over again.’ I only plan the first exchange and then just go with it, so (how it actually ends) your guess is as good as mine.”

Rousey also said that her mother wants her to go for a quick finish vs. Correia, who has sparked quite the feud between the two sides with comments relating to suicide and Rousey’s decisions.

“I explained to my mom I’m actually being more risky if I go for a fast finish,” she said. “Going more slowly would be the safer way to win.”

Following wins over Cat Zingano, Alexis Davis, Sara McMann and Miesha Tate in dominant fashion, Rousey heads into the title fight an overwhelming favorite. Despite that, though, she remains focused on her ultimate career goal.

“In the grand goal, I’m not the favorite,” she explained. “I wan tot be one of the most dominant fighters who’ve ever lived and retire undefeated.

“I’m an underdog in that.”

FightLine will have complete coverage this Saturday night of all the action from UFC 190, including live and free play-by-play.

ufc 190

Dan Hardy and John Gooden offer up insight and thoughts for Saturday night’s main event at UFC 190 between Ronda Rousey and Bethe Correia in the latest edition of “Inside the Octagon.”


Jake Shields is a former Strikeforce champion and title contender when he was in the UFC.

This Saturday night, Shields will take on Rousimar Palhares for World Series of Fighting welterweight gold.

Shields (31-7-1) is a perfect 2-0 since coming over to the WSOF, scoring first round finishes vs. Brian Foster and Ryan Ford. In all, Shields has 12 submission wins to his credit – and would like nothing more than making Palhares No. 13.

“If I have it I’m going to try and break it,” said Shields, during a recent interview with Submission Radio, regarding a submission attempt on Palhares. “I mean obviously if he taps I’m gonna stop. I’m not gonna risk getting suspended over something stupid like that, but I’m definitely gonna grab it try to rip anything I get.”

Palhares has made headlines several times after not releasing submission attempts after the fighter had tapped. That includes a win over Mike Pierce that led to his 2013 release from the UFC.

A veteran of the sport, Shields isn’t buying the “misunderstood” claim made by Palhares regarding the submission holds.

“I think he’s a really bad person who enjoys hurting people, or he’s really stupid,” he said. “There’s no way that he just, you know, he’d have to be really stupid to not understand that he holds a submission too long. We’re submission guys, that’s what we do. We train all the time, we’re used to people tapping in training. He’s been hurting people in training as well.”
