Ronda Rousey Just Defended Her UFC Title By Ending The Fight In 34 Seconds

Blink and you might have missed it.

Saturday night Ronda Rousey took on challenger Bethe Correia at UFC 190 in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, to defend her bantamweight title.

Leading up to the fight there had been a lot of bad blood between the two fighters.

The animosity started earlier this year when Correia made a veiled reference to Rousey's father's suicide.

When asked about Rousey at a promotional event, Correia said:

"She is winning, so everybody is around her cheering her up, but when she realizes she is not everything that she believes she is, I don't know what might happen.

"I hope she does not kill herself later on. [laughs]"

Rousey took to Twitter to voice her own opinion on the quote, and vowed payback.

@bethecorreia suicide is no joke or selling point. My father will be with me the day I hand you the comeuppance you deserve.

Tensions were high as the fight got underway.

However, Rousey wasted no time, and in just 34 seconds got Correia with a combination against the fence that sent her down. The referee immediately stepped in to stop the fight.
