Ronda Rousey to appear on Ellen DeGeneres, talk UFC return Tuesday

Headlines were made earlier this year when Rousey went on the show and openly discussed thoughts of suicide following her title fight loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193 last November.  That was the last time we saw the dominant former champion compete inside the octagon.

“Honestly, my thought, I was in the medical room and I was down in the corner, and I was like, ‘What am I anymore if I’m not this?’” Rousey said. “I was literally sitting there and thinking about killing myself, and that exact second I’m like, ‘I’m nothing. What do I do anymore?’ and ‘No one gives a (expletive) about me anymore without this.’”
