Ronda Rousey opened up in an exclusive interview with ESPN about her feelings after Holly Holm shocked the world and gave Rousey her first career lost.

“I’m just really fucking sad,” Rousey told ESPN.

Rousey was knocked out by Holm during the UFC 193 fight from a kick to the head that was so violent and brutal Rousey claims, “It might be three to six months before I can eat an apple, let alone take an impact.” (RELATED: Ronda Rousey Got Beat So Badly She’s Been Suspended)

“I need to come back. I need to beat this chick. Who knows if I’m going to pop my teeth out or break my jaw or rip my lip open. I have to fucking do it,” Rousey said.
