It’s no longer surprising when Ronda Rousey dispatches a foe inside of a minute, but the “Rowdy” one keeps finding entertaining ways to deal out misery nonetheless.
The women’s bantamweight queen made short work of Bethe Correia on Saturday night, winning via knockout 34 seconds into their headlining encounter at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro. A right hand behind the ear sent the Brazilian tumbling face first to the canvas, capping off yet another short-lived yet enthralling performance from the Olympic judoka. As the bodies pile up, so do the figures. Here is a by-the-numbers look at UFC 190, with statistics courtesy of FightMetric.com.
6: Consecutive title defenses for Rousey, moving her past Matt Hughes and Tito Ortiz and into fifth place for most title defenses in UFC history.
