On “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” which aired February 16, Ronda Rousey tells Ellen DeGeneres she thought about suicide after loss to Holly Holm, as she battled with a range of emotions after losing her MMA belt to the Preacher’s Daughter.
UFC 193 saw Rousey’s first ever loss, as Holm toppled the MMA star in a stunning TKO victory to gain the UFC women’s belt.
