After hearing that Ronda Rousey thought about taking her own life while being defeated by her, Holly Holm has revealed that she thinks that difficult moment will actually make her rival much stronger in the end.
Holly Holm, 34, is not planning on apologizing to Ronda Rousey, 29, after defeating her so badly in Nov. 2015 that the younger fighter landed in the hospital. However, Holly has revealed how she truly feels after hearing that Ronda was feeling suicidal, and she has some kind words for her fellow fighter.
“I don’t want to say that I’m glad that she felt that way and I don’t want to say, ‘Oh I’m so sorry.’ It’s something I think that you have to dig through on your own. In the long run, she’ll be stronger mentally from it,” Holly explained, as reported by TMZ.

This is the first time Holly is speaking out about defeating Ronda since her rival revealed that she was thinking she would have to take her own life after their fight was over. Holly was surprisingly gracious to Ronda after hearing the shocking confession from her fellow fighter.
“When I heard that she said that, for me it’s one of those things it’s like, ‘How do I respond to that? I don’t want to say I’m sorry because I think on a competitive level for me, if somebody was to say they’re sorry after [beating me], it’s like, ‘No, I’m a competitor.’ I’m not a charity case,” Holly shared, explaining why she won’t be apologizing for beating Ronda.
