In the interview the undefeated Brazilian said, “I hope she does not kill herself later on” which has not gone down well with Rousey, especially due to the fact that her father committed suicide when she was young.
The interview was with Brazilian outlet Combate in which Correia discussed her fight with Rousey saying how she was going to knock her opponent out among other things.
"I want to knock her out, show to everyone that she is a lie," Correia said (translation by MMAMania).
"She wants to stand up with me, let's see. I want to humiliate her and show the word she has no MMA. She is focused on movies, books. I am much stronger; I come from a developing country, where people are struggling to survive, not to starve. It is very different from her life of reality.
"Under pressure, she is proving weak. When her mom put pressure on her, she ran away from home. When she lost, it was because of drugs. That's not a superhero. She is not mentally healthy; she needs to take care of herself.
“She is winning, so everybody is around her cheering her up, but when she realizes she is not everything that she believes she is, I don't know what might happen. I hope she does not kill herself later on," she added.
Rousey responded via Twitter to Correia's tasteless taunt.
"Suicide is no joke or selling point," Rousey told Correia on Twitter. "My father will be with me the day I hand you the comeuppance you deserve."
Rousey's father committed suicide after suffering from severe back pain after breaking his back in a sledding accident when she was eight-years-old.
