Bethe Correia



Heads into retirement with loss
October 2, 2021
Correia lost to Karol Rosa via unanimous decision (27-30, 27-30, 26-30) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
Correia was dominated from bell-to-bell in her "retirement" fight, which should come as a surprise to absolutely no one considering she is 38 years old, entered as a +500 underdog and missed weight by 2.5 pounds on Friday morning. Correia parlayed victories over Julie Kedzie, Jessamyn Duke and Shayna Bazler in her first three UFC bouts into a fight against then-champion Ronda Rousey back in August 2015. Ronda knocked her out in 34 seconds and Correia went on to post a 2-6-1 mark in her final nine bouts with the company. She deserves credit for hanging on as long as she did, quite frankly, and Correia will always be able to hang her hat on the fact she fought for UFC gold.
