Overview

Bantamweight queen Rousey is the favourite to win the fight on Sunday as she takes on Correia in Brazil. She is the firm favourite for the weekend bout in the Main Event as she hopes to beat her opponent this weekend.

The fight was initially supposed to take place on 15 May and it was later moved to 27 June as the event was supposed to take place in Florida. However, several fighters experienced travelling restrictions due to issues with the Bureau of Consular Affairs.

This forced the event to be rescheduled once again and the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro was selected as the venue for the big clash. Correia, being Brazilian, will be hoping the support of local fans will help her seal a win over Rousey on Sunday.

Both Rousey and Correia are unbeaten in professional MMA and one of the fighters' streak will come to an end on 2 August.

What they say

Ronda Rousey: "I'm gonna beat up Bethe, and then I'm going to take a couple of weeks to rest. Then I'm going to go beat up Miesha, and then I'm going to go to Thailand or wherever we decide to film, prep for a month, start filming for eight or 10 weeks. And then go beat up the next chick."

Bethe Correia: "I would give her a rematch so she wouldn't cry so much. She can't handle pressure. I will give her the opportunity to try and get the belt back. Please don't kill yourself. Don't commit suicide. I will give you a rematch."
