Bethe Correia has been hit with instant karma after taunting Holly Holm seconds before receiving a massive head kick knockout.
Holm knocked out Correia in the main event at UFC Fight Night 111 in Singapore, Holm’s first victory since beating Ronda Rousey in similar fashion in November 2015.
Holm caught Correia just over a minute into the third round with a vicious kick to the head and followed that up with a left uppercut while Correia was on the seat of her pants.
The knockout was especially sweet for Holm considering Correia taunted her moments before getting paid back.

She previously had an unblemished 10-0 record in MMA.
