Holly Holm is still riding high after her shocking victory over MMA champion Ronda Rousey last year.

In fact, Holly Holm is already training for a highly-publicized match against Meisha Tate in March and if she wins, she'll be facing Ronda Rousey again in November.

Last month, Holly Holm said she was ready to move on with her career and wasn't concerned about Ronda Rousey's career at all.

Holly Holm said, "For me I want to keep fighting and if Ronda wants to come back and that's her passion -- great. If she wants to stay in movies -- great."

She added, "I think that I would rather meet someone in the cage when they're passionate about it. I don't want it to be because they feel like they have to or it's expected or other people are curious about it. It's Ronda's life, I want her to do what she wants to do."

What Rhonda wants to do is beat Holly Holm and set things right. That's what she said on Tuesday's episode of Ellen, anyway.

It seems her spirits have lightened since being defeated by Holly Holm. Directly after the match, she wasn't so sure of anything.

She told Ellen, “In the medical room, I was down in the corner, I was sitting in the corner and I was 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 nothing. Like what do I do anymore? And no one gives an [expletive] about me anymore without this.”

Such a surprising revelation from a person who is seemingly one of the world's most confident women!

Are you surprised that Holly Holm's victory brought out such feelings in Ronda Rousey?
