For their UFC 190 battle on Saturday, UFC champion Ronda Rousey plans to make Brazilian fighter Bethe Correia suffer and "embarrass" her with a crippling defeat.

Set to happen in Correia's home country in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the upcoming matchup doesn't seem to bother the UFC champ at all.

She is confident that she will take home a victory, according to the Toronto Sun.

"When I don't have the home-court advantage, that's another thing that really keeps me motivated. I want the fans to know that even though I'm doing a lot of things, I want to be the most active champion out there as well," Rousey said.

The MMA fighter is furious with her opponent after Correia mentioned the suicide of Rousey's father in one interview.

"I think everything up until the suicide comment could have been understandable from a marketing point of view. But when she said that is when it really crossed the line and became truly personal for me," Rousey added in the Toronto Sun report.

It was also reported that the UFC female bantamweight title holder has long been preparing for her match against the Brazilian fighter.

Recently, she expressed that she will not end their match fast like in her other fights but will prolong it to make Correia suffer. Rousey's mother reportedly did not like the idea.

"She chewed me out. She wants me to end it as quick as possible still. I promised her that I'm going to be fine. I'm not going to take any damage," she told Toronto Sun.

Rousey also revealed her plan for her next fights.

"I'm going to beat up Bethe. Then I'm going to take a couple of weeks to rest. And then I'm going to go beat up Miesha (Tate, her likely next opponent). And then I'm going to go to Thailand, or wherever we decide to film. I'm going to prep for a month and start filming for eight to 10 weeks, and then go beat up the next chick. That's pretty much my plan," she added.

When the two fighters saw each other face to face on Thursday for their media day, Fox Sports reported that it did not look pleasant at all. Both fighters tried to intimidate each other during their staredown.

It added that Correia also started trash talking Rousey though it was not audible enough to really understand her.

However, according to MMA Fighting, the Brazilian spoke in her native Portuguese and made it clear that she will win the fight.

"I'll beat you up. I'll put my hand in your face. I will knock you out," Correia's words read translated to English.
