Experience on Ronda Rousey's side

ESPN writer Brett Okamoto gives his take Ronda Rousey's mindset as she will record her sixth UFC title defense Saturday when faces Bethe Correia at UFC 190 in Rio de Janeiro.
Outside of supernatural intervention, Ronda Rousey will record her sixth UFC title defense Saturday when she demolishes Bethe Correia at UFC 190 in Rio de Janeiro.

Such is the perception heading into this weekend's bantamweight title fight.

Rousey is an absurd 17-1 betting favorite over Correia. The figure implies a win probability of 95 percent. Some might consider that too low.

The matchup is so lopsided, no one has as much as blinked at Rousey (11-0) as she has sworn to prolong Correia's suffering, rather than finish the fight quickly. Willingly extend the fight, if you will. Earlier this year, Correia made a tasteless remark pertaining to suicide and Rousey took it personally. Her father took his own life when she was 8 years old.
