Conor McGregor was among those to praise Ronda Rousey after her demolition of her Brazilian challenger Bethe Correia at UFC 190.

Rousey defended her bantamweight title by finishing the contest after just 34 seconds and subsequently dedicated her win to the late “Rowdy” Roddy Piper. The former WWE wrestling star was such a hero of Rousey's that she nicknamed herself after him.

The victory improved her record to 12-0 in her incredible MMA career.

Afterwards McGreogor paid tribute to the devastating fighter.

"I prayed for a few rounds and barely got half a minute. Ronda Rousey is devastating!! She is too much for these women. #UFC190," he posted on his account.
