Ronda Rousey has admitted that she contemplated suicide after her devastating loss to Holly Holm.

Rousey, 29, addressed the loss on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” today, saying that she felt like “nothing” after Holm knocked her out with a kick to the head at UFC 193 in Melbourne, Australia, last November.

“I was in the medical room, and I was down in the corner…. I was sitting in the corner and I was like, ‘What am I anymore if I’m not this'” Rousey recalled tearfully. “I was literally sitting there and thinking about killing myself and that exact second I’m like, ‘I’m nothing, what do I do anymore and no one gives a s*** about me anymore without this.'”

Rousey said it was ultimately her boyfriend and fellow UFC star Travis Browne that gave her the will to “stay alive.”

“To be honest, I looked up and I saw my man, Travis, was standing up there … and I looked up at him and was just like, ‘I need to have his babies. I need to stay alive,'” Rousey said.

“I haven’t told anybody that. I only told him that. But that’s what I was thinking,” she continued. “I was meant to have him when I was at my lowest, for sure. I don’t know if I would’ve made it without him.”
