    UFC bantamweight contender Bethe Correia (9-0) has been doing all she can with her fighting and her trash talk to get the attention her record deserves, and work her way up to a title shot. That's why she believes two-time world title challenger Miesha Tate (15-5) recently singled her out for a future fight.

    "I think she saw all the attention I was receiving. Tate had two chances against Ronda and lost both twice. She saw that I’m closer to a title shot, so she wants to use that attention."

    Even if that is the case, the Brazilian slugger believes that the wrestling-based Tate made a mistake in not just calling Correia out, but in specifically saying she wants a stand-up striking battle with her.  "Tate does have good grappling, but she challenged me to a stand-up war," the undefeated fighter explained.
