Following her win over Jessamyn Duke at UFC 172, the still undefeated Bethe Correia held up four fingers, and then dropped one.
The move was a reference to Ronda Rousey's posse, the Four Horsewomen: Duke, plus Shayna Baszler, Marina Shafir, and UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey.
Correia's message was one down, three to go,
“They were tweeting me and provoking me all the time,” said Correia to MMAJunkie. “One of them is called a weapon in Brazil, and I just want to say I’m bulletproof.”
Shafir just turned pro and is not signed by the UFC. There are likely a few fighters ahead of Correia, so a title shot with Rousey does not appear imminent. Thus a good next fight would be Shayna Baszler.
The Four Horsewomen is a play on the The Four Horsemen, a pro wrestling faction that was originally formed by Ric Flair, Arn Anderson, Ole Anderson, and Tully Blanchard.
For the record, of the Four Horsewomen Rousey says she's the Rick Flair.
