During the UFC 190 official weigh-in, Rousey came in at the maximum 135 pounds, while Correia weighed in at 134 pounds.
Afterward during the final stare down, Correia screamed into Rousey’s face, while the defending champion kept a fierce look on her face without responding.
Correia is 3-0 in her UFC career, and the fight became personal when she previously remarked how Rousey would “kill herself” if she lost.READ MORE: Buy Them Now: Shoppers Urged To Get A Jump On The Holidays Due To Global Shipping Problems

Rousey is a 17-1 favorite in most of Las Vegas’ casinos, and if the odds stick by fight time, it would be the biggest betting favorite in the history of UFC.
“You’re not going to be disappointed,” Rousey said. “I’m going to give you the best women’s title fight you’ve ever seen, the most devastating loss you’ve ever seen from Bethe, and my best win.”MORE NEWS: LA County Sheriff's Employee Killed, Woman Hurt After Vintage Sports Car Careens Into Pole In Temple City
