Class of 34 (seconds)

Next time, Bethe Correia, shut your claptrap and back it up in the octagon before you go mouthing off.

Check that. Just shut up.

Correia got her just rewards earlier this morning (very late last night in the Central Time Zone) when Ronda Rousey destroyed her in 34 seconds to retain the UFC Bantamweight championship in Rio de Janeiro. Rousey didn’t even need to take Correia to the canvas and apply her devastating armbar. Instead, “Rowdy” simply pummeled the Brazilian loudmouth with a pair of devastating right hands, beating Correia at her own game.

In May, Correia made the fatal mistake of telling Rousey that she shouldn’t “kill herself” if she lost, even though Correia damn well knew Rousey’s dad committed suicide.

The question now becomes what is left for Rousey to prove in UFC?

Miesha Tate, the only fighter to last past the first round with Rousey, will get a third shot at the queen in January or February. Unless Tate pulls off one of the biggest shockers in 21st century sports, Rousey will then have no competition, period, unless she wants to fight a man, and that would be too risky. Could she go back to judo, in which she earned an Olympic bronze medal in 2008 at Beijing? Could she attempt freestyle wrestling and be ready for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo? Maybe she goes to the WWE in honor of her late friend, Rowdy Roddy Piper, who died Thursday of a heart attack at 61. Or there’s always acting.

No matter what, Rousey will be a very rich lady. I don’t know of a single product who would not want her as a lead endorser.

I love Rousey, but anyone who paid $54 ($49.95 plus tax) to watch the fight is nuts. And no way was I sitting in a crowded Buffalo Wild Wings.
