Former UFC champion Ronda Rousey says she thought about killing herself shortly after losing by knockout to Holly Holm in November.
Ronda opened up to Ellen about her loss, saying:
“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.'”
She credits her relationship with her boyfriend, UFC heavyweight Travis Browne, with getting her 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.'”
