After thoughts of suicide: Holly Holm shows understanding for Ronda Rousey

Holly Holm inflicted her first loss on Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey caused a stir on TV recently when she tearfully reported thoughts of suicide. Now Holly Holm commented, who inflicted her first defeat on Rousey and so plunged into the crisis. She believes in a stronger Rousey, but she cannot apologize.

In November Ronda Rousey suffered her first defeat in her mixed martial arts career when she was knocked out by Holm at UFC 193. On the Ellen DeGeneres Show, she tearfully confessed to even having thought of suicide. Not an easy situation for the winner Holm.

"When I heard what she had said, I had to think for a long time. How should I answer that," said Holm, who shows understanding for Rousey. "I fully understand your situation and I feel sorry for you."

But she doesn't want to apologize to Rousey. "I will not give her an apology. After all, we are in a competition. The best thing for me is not to say much about it. Neither that I am happy about it nor that I regret it," continued Holm.

She also believes that the defeat would make Rousey mentally stronger in the long run. Holm defends Rousey's title at UFC 196 against Miesha Tate.
