Ronda Rousey Reveals History Of Suicide In Family

ronda rousey interview

Ronda Rousey wasn’t playing with words when she admitted that she had suicidal thoughts after her shocking loss to Holly Holm. In fact, the (former) UFC champ says she knows the seriousness of suicide–because someone close to her had taken their life, too.

In an ambush interview with TMZ, Rousey says suicide is “something real people are going through” and that she doesn’t even consider it a weakness. She then shared that her own dad and paternal grandfather had committed suicide, although she didn’t say how long ago.

“It’s really heavily affected our family … anything I can do to make sure it affects as few people as possible, I’d be happy to do that,” she said.

Looks like Holm was right about Holly ending up being “stronger mentally” from this ordeal.
