It was apparent Ronda Rousey was reeling after her loss to Holly Holm in November, but she recently revealed just how dark of a place she was in.

"Rowdy" lost to Holm at UFC 193 via second-round knockout and she opened up in an emotional interview about how she contemplated suicide after hitting the low point of her career.

"Honestly, my thought, I was like, in the medical room and I was down in the corner," Rousey told Ellen DeGeneres in a tearful interview set to air Tuesday. "I was sitting in the corner like, what am I anymore if I'm not this? And I was literally sitting there and thinking about killing myself at 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."

Rousey said she was able to shed all those dark thoughts when she saw her boyfriend, fellow UFC fighter Travis Browne, and thought about their future together.

"To be honest I looked up and I saw my man 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," she said. "Really that was it."

Though Rousey initially thought no one would care about her anymore, her busy Hollywood schedule begs to differ. There is also a lot of buzz about a potential rematch between her and Holm, if the reigning women's bantamweight champion survives her fight with Meisha Tate in March.

Rousey recently dusted herself off and got back into the Octagon to train, so her career will move forward once her schedule clears up and she is 100 percent ready for a return.

The depths "Rowdy" fell to after her loss shows exactly what the unbeaten streak meant to her, but her relationship with Browne is also something she cherishes as it helped her fight her way back from the brink of depression.
