Ronda Rousey appears on The Ellen Degeneres show and discusses her upset loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193 this past November. She opens up about her lowest point when she even contemplated suicide.
When explaining her thoughts and feelings during the fight Rousey told Ellen, “I got clipped in the first exchange so I was knocked out on my feet like the first time I got hit. Its hard to really know whats going on. In that first hit I cut open my whole mouth and I knocked my teeth loose.” She said, “I was swinging blindly, I knew she was out there but like I really don’t remember most of it”.
When explaining about the moments after her loss Rousey broke down and told Ellen that she contemplated suicide,”I was in the medical room and I was down in the corner, sitting in the corner and I was like what am I anymore if Im not this. I was literally sitting there thinking about killing myself and in that exact second Im like Im nothing, Im like what do I do anymore and no one gives a shit about me anymore without this.”
She tells Ellen that it was her boyfriend fellow UFC fighter Travis Browne that helped her to pull through it. “To be honest, I looked up and I saw my man Travis was standing there and I looked up at him and I was like, I need to have his babies. I need to stay alive” She said. “I was meant to have him when I was at my lowest for sure. I don’t know if I would of made it without him”.
