Last week, Ronda appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and talked about her feelings after losing her match with Holly Holm. The fighter opened up about having suicidal thoughts: “I was sitting in the corner like, what am I anymore if I’m not this? And I was literally sitting there and thinking about killing myself in that exact second. I was like, I’m nothing. What do I do anymore? And no one give a s**t about me without this anymore,” Rousey said.

Ronda gives credit to her boyfriend, MMA fighter, Travis Browne, for helping her see the light during her darkest time. “To be honest, I looked up and I saw my man Travis was standing there. I looked up at him and I was like, I need to have his babies. I need to stay alive. I haven’t told anyone that. I think I only told him that,” she told Ellen and the audience.
