Ronda Rousey confides to Ellen Degeneres that she considering suicide in the hours after losing her UFC fight with Holly Holm in November. The tearful interview airs Tuesday, February 16, on The Ellen Show.

Roused tells Ellen that her lowest moment was in the medical room after the fight: "I was in a corner and I was like 'What am I anymore if I'm not this?' And I was literally sitting there and like thinking about killing myself in that exact second. I'm like, 'I'm nothing.' I'm like 'What do I do anymore?' And no one gives a shit about me anymore without this. To be honest, I looked up and I saw my man, Travis, was standing there, and I looked up at him and I was like, 'I need to have his babies. I need to stay alive."

Rousey's partner is UFC fighter Travis Browne.

Roused also recounts that she doesn't remember a lot of what happened in the fight ring after Holm got in some powerful hits on her. "I wasn't even there anymore," she said.
