Ronda Rousey suffered a devestating loss to Holly Holmand she’s still reeling from the knock-out moment.

She broke down during an interview with Ellen Degeneres saying, “What am I anymore If I’m not this? I was literally sitting there and thinking about killing myself.”

Her breakthrough moment came when she looked at her boyfriend.

“I looked up, and I saw my man Travis, and I said, ‘I need to have his babies I need to stay alive.”

That thought reinvigorated her will to live. It’s crazy how our careers at some point become “who we are.”

We are glad Ronda was able to look beyond that loss to find hope for the future.
