Bethe Correia Retires Following Loss At UFC Vegas 38
UFC bantamweight Bethe Correia has hung her gloves.
Correia, a Brazilian fighter, lost to Karol Rosa via unanimous decision at UFC Vegas 38. This was her second loss on the trot.
Correia signed with the UFC back in 2013. The 38-year-old flaunts a 11-6 win-loss record. She has won just once in her last five fights.
Rosa and Correia were given the green signal for the matchup this week despite Correia missing her weight. The showdown was then made a catchweight bout.
Speaking to Daniel Cormier in the post-fight interview, she thanked Dana White and the UFC for having her.
“(It’s a) very emotional moment for me. It’s been very emotional for me, a lot of deja vu moments for me. I can only thank the UFC for all the opportunities they gave me,” Correia said.

Before joining the UFC, the MMA ace won six fights in a row as a regional fighter in Brazil. On her UFC debut, Correia beat Julie Kedzie via split-decision.
She won her first UFC fight with ease until she bumped into former UFC champ Ronda Rousey in August 2015. She was knocked out within 34 seconds of the fight. Her career has been topsy-turvy since then.
