Ronda Rousey considered suicide following loss to Holly Holm.

Ronda Rousey was on the Ellen Degeneres show the other day and explained how she contemplated suicide after her loss to Holly Holm in November.

I thought this was a bit extreme. Don’t you think?

I understand how this thought crossed her mind. She had never tasted a loss before. She had this reputation of being unbeatable, which I’m sure is a boost to the ego. She has tons of endorsements and followers. When any competitor gets a reality check that they aren’t unstoppable, self doubt can really set in.

lossThoughts of suicide though? That seems a bit extreme and alarming to me. Although, her father committed suicide when she was 8 years old. It’s possible deep depression could run in the family. Mix that with the possibility of sustaining permanent brain damage in the future and you get a cluster fuck of potential issues that could pop up down the road.

With a rematch on the horizon, you got to wonder if she can rebound. If the self doubt is already in her head, she might already be defeated before a punch is even thrown.
