Bethe Correia Responds To Miesha Tate

Miesha Tate spoke to sources this week and talked about how shes hoping to get Correia in her next bout, heres what she had to say on the matter:

“She’s doing really well and she’s not afraid to engage in a fight, She’s undefeated and she has an exciting style of fighting. My last two opponents that I beat just wanted to grab a hold of me and take me to the ground. They did not want to throw punches with me at all. It’s not as fun for me. I like people that want to stand up and fight. I feel like Correia is well-rounded and we could win fight of the night.”

Correia responded to Tate saying what she truly wants is a title shot against UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, something she has said before. Heres her exact words:

“Everyone knows I want to be the champion, And fight the champion is something I’ve looked for, something I worked to get. I have no idea why Tate decided to appear in this history. 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. It’s hard to win fight of the night when one of the two people in the ring just want to hold on to you or lay on you,” Tate said. “I want to fight someone that isn’t afraid to stand up with me. Let’s give the fans what they want to see and throw punches until someone goes down. I’ll be the next UFC champion, 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.”
