UFC champion Rhonda Rousey was a little off her game Saturday – she knocked out Bethe Correia in 34 seconds instead of the combined 30 seconds it took to beat two of her last three opponents.

Rousey continued her incredible dominance in the bantamweight division by administering a beat down to Correia in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, according to the Washington Post.

Correia took to taunting Rousey back in May, and at one point made a comment referencing her father's suicide, according to Fox Sports.

"I want to knock her out, show to everyone that she is a lie," Correia said of Rousey through a translator back in May. "… 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."

Rousey admitted that fight had become personal for her.

"I feel it's a challenge," Rousey said after the fight. "I want to silence every criticism one at a time, and I think I silenced one tonight."

Following the match, Olympic hurdler Lolo Jones posted on Twitter that she knows the key to lasting more than 34 seconds against the tenacious Rousey: run in circles.



That, in turn, led to a Twitter comment on the May 2 boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao. The championship big-money fight, won by Mayweather, was criticized partly for Mayweather's alleged inaction in the ring.



Upon Rousey's victory, several star athletes took to social media to cheer her on.
