Ronda Rousey Thought About Suicide After Holly Holm Defeat

Rhonda Rousey

Ronda Rousey revealed in an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday that she thought about committing suicide in the moments after her loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193 in Melbourne, Australia. Rousey was knocked out by Holm with a kick to the head in one of the most stunning defeats in sports history.

“Honestly, my thought in the medical room, I was sitting in the corner and was like, 'What am I anymore if I'm not this?'" Rousey said. "Literally sitting there thinking about killing myself. In that exact second, I'm like, 'I'm nothing. What do I do anymore? No one gives a s--- about me anymore without this.’”

Rousey credited her boyfriend Travis Browne for helping her get through that moment.

"I looked up and saw my man, Travis, was standing there," Rousey said. "I'm looking up at him and was just like, 'I need to have his babies. I need to stay alive.’”
