A 2008 Olympic bronze medalist in judo, Rousey, lately impressed former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson during a recent workout at Rousey’s home gym in Glendale with her boxing abilities.
In a conference call with reporters, Rousey, 28, confidently spoke of conquering Correia and moving on to your possible November date in Australia against Miesha Tate, whom she has defeated twice.
Correia, 32, began mixed martial arts training in her 20s and got Rousey’s curiosity by conquering two of the champ’s training partners last year, Jessamyn Duke and Shayna Baszler.
Correia says her strategy would be to face Rousey having an enhanced outstanding plan developed by a rough four-month training camp.
In May, Correia made things personal by saying she expects Rousey doesn’t commit suicide after losing, a comment Rousey thought insensitive given her father’s suicide.
“My father is going to be with me the day I hand you the comeuppance you deserve,” Rousey tweeted to Correia, who later apologized and said she was unaware.
At a face off Thursday, Correia was the aggressor, Rousey reacting with furious-face quiet.
