Holly Holm isn't showing a whole lot of sympathy for Ronda Rousey's suicidal thoughts.

Earlier this week, Rousey appeared on Ellen to finally discuss her earth-shaking loss to Holly Holm in last year's UFC 193.

Ronda Rousey shocked everyone when she revealed a moment of extreme weakness after Holly Holm knocked her out, stealing her championship title.

She said, “Honestly… I was, like, in the medical room, and I was down in the corner. I was sitting in the corner like, ‘What am I anymore if I’m not this?'"

She added, "And I was literally sitting there and thinking about killing myself. In that exact second I’m like, ‘I’m nothing, what do I do anymore? And no one gives a s–t about me anymore without this.'”

On Wednesday, Holly Holm responded to Rousey's suicidal admission, though not in the way some may have thought.

She said, “There’s a lot of things around that. When I heard that she said that, for me it’s one of those things it’s like, ‘How do I respond to that?’”

She continued, “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, it’s like, ‘No, I’m a competitor.’ I’m not a charity case."

She added, “I feel like that’s something the best thing is for me not to say anything at all. 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.”

Wow, Holly Holm's toughness extends beyond the ring doesn't it?
