Two down, two to go.

Bethe Correia’s mission to take out all of MMA’s ‘Four Horsewomen’ may have felt like a WWE gimmick at times, but the Brazilian’s now beaten two of Ronda Rousey’s much-hyped group of training partners after dismantling Shayna Baszler on Saturday night at UFC 177.

After beating Jessamyn Duke back at UFC 172, it means that the only woman who stands between Correia and the women’s bantamweight champion is Marina Shafir.

Correia utterly dominated Baszler on Saturday, controlling the first round before unloading a brutal series of punches and elbows in the second that ended the fight.
