Ronda Rousey Thought About Killing Herself After Losing To Holly Holm

Former UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey made a shocking revelation on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" Tuesday, admitting she had suicidal thoughts after her Nov. 14 loss to Holly Holm.

"I'm like, 'I'm nothing. What do I do anymore? No one gives a s*** about me anymore without this,'" Rousey told DeGeneres.

Holm's round-two knockout of Rousey is one of the biggest UFC upsets, and it surprised much of the MMA world. It was Rousey's first loss of her 12-win professional career.

Rousey was badly damaged in the fight — something that's unusual for a fighter whose previous four fights lasted a combined total of 2 minutes and 10 seconds.

Rousey revealed to ESPN The Magazine in December, "It might be three to six months before I can eat an apple, let alone take an impact."

UFC president Dana White had originally wanted Rousey to return to the ring for UFC 200 in July for a rematch against Holm, but Rousey's reportedly asked for more time off since the loss.

Before a potential rematch against Rousey, Holm is scheduled to take on Miesha Tate at UFC 196 on March 5.
