On Saturday, Aug. 1, the UFC will host UFC 190: Rousey vs. Correia from the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
In the night’s main event, undefeated women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey takes on Brazilian challenger Bethe Correia. Rousey moved her record to 11-0 with a 14-second demolition of Cat Zingano in February. The 28-year-old’s last two wins have lasted a combined 30 seconds. Correia, meanwhile, also enters the contest unbeaten. However, unlike Rousey, who has finished all of her opponents, the Brazilian has gone the distance in seven of her nine professional outings.
The co-main event features former light heavyweight champion Mauricio “Shogun” Rua against countryman Antonio Rogerio Nogueira. The pair met previously in 2005 under the Pride FC banner, with Rua taking home a unanimous decision win. Recently the two veterans coached opposite one another on The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 4.
The 13-fight event kicks off Saturday at 7 p.m. ET with two fights streaming on UFC Fight Pass. Four additional preliminary card bouts follow at 8 p.m. ET on Fox Sports 1, with the seven-fight main card airing live on pay-per-view at 10 p.m. ET.
