Miesha Tate tried to offer possible clarification this week on Ronda Rousey's suicide revelation on The Ellen Show last Tuesday.

Ronda Rousey was on Ellen when she decided to finally speak about her devastating and shocking loss to Holly Holm (who is scheduled to fight Miesha Tate in March) in last year's UFC 193.

She said, "Honestly ... I was sitting in the corner of the room and was like, 'What am I anymore if I'm not this?' I was literally sitting there thinking about killing myself."

Miesha Tate, for one, thinks that Rousey didn't literally mean she wanted to do herself in.

She said, "When [Rousey] says like, 'Oh, I was, you know, considering suicide,' I don't necessarily think she meant like 'Oh, I'm going to go home and, you know, actually do it,' but it just feels like you want to die."

As for Miesha Tate, were she in Rousey's place, she might feel really low, but would never even think of ending her own life.

Gettin after it!!

She added, "I've never considered taking my own life. For me, especially religiously, it is just never an option for me."

Well, it's a good thing Miesha Tate feels that way, because she could end up in that same situation as Ronda Rousey next month.

What do you think about Miesha Tate's comments on Ronda Rousey's suicidal thoughts admission?
