Former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey took her loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193 hard. Rousey was KO’d with a head kick by Holm to not only lose her title, but it also broke her undefeated streak. Rousey, who said going into the fight that she wanted to retire undefeated, said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday (transcribed by the Daily Mail) that she almost committed suicide following the loss.

“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–t about me anymore without this.’

However, she changed her mind when she saw her boyfriend and fellow UFC fighter Travis Browne.

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

Rousey revealed that she was hit so hard by Holm that she doesn’t remember most of the fight.

“In that first hit I cut open my whole mouth, and I knocked my teeth loose,” said Rousey on the show. “I knew she was out there, but like I really don’t remember most of it. So I was trying my best to kind of hide the fact that I wasn’t even there anymore.”

Now, on the positive side, Rousey is already back training. Rousey and UFC President Dana White has gone on record by saying that she would return to MMA late in 2016 due to her movie schedule.

It’s expected that if Holm can defeat Miesha Tate in the co-main event of UFC 196, then she would fight Rousey this year.
