Among all the female fighters on the roster, Bethe Correia loses the best. Remember when she got destroyed by Ronda Rousey? Remember when Holly Holm wrecked her? Simply the best. And she managed to keep up this streak of losing spectacularly when she fought Irene Aldana at UFC 237.
Correia wanted to brawl and use her power to her advantage, while Aldana wanted to box her into oblivion. Aldana was more or less successful in that regard.

However, as time ran on, Correia seemed to pick up momentum. So of course she shot for a takedown. And of course Aldana scrambled onto her back, transitioned into an armbar, and tapped Correia out.
The Brazilian has one once in her last six fights, and that was back in 2016. And Correia failed to make weight for this bout. How much longer is she going to be gracing us with her spectacular losses in the UFC? I wonder…
