Cris Cyborg: Ronda Rousey has 'weak mind' if she considered suicide after Holm loss

Invicta FC featherweight champion Cris Cyborg chipped in her thoughts on Ronda Rousey's recent admission of suicidal thoughts after her KO loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193.

Former Strikeforce and current Invicta FC featherweight champion Cris Cyborg was quickly interviewed by TMZ, and as you would expect, the main focus was on her 135 lbs rival, Ronda Rousey. The former UFC champion went on The Ellen Show and told host Ellen DeGeneres that she experienced suicidal thoughts following her 2nd round KO defeat to Holly Holm at UFC 193.

When asked about Rousey's comments, as well as new champion Miesha Tate's quip that "it seems like her motivation to stick around was to have Travis Browne's baby," Cyborg questioned Rousey's mental strength.

"I think it's weak mind, you know? Because when you fight, you can lose, you can win," Cyborg said. "It's a sport. You cannot think you want suicide because you lose one fight."

"Some people handle it better than others."

Cyborg doesn't have her next Invicta FC title defense lined up, but she said of Rousey that the two of them "have to fight before she finishes [her career]." Her own manager, however, thinks it's a longshot that the Brazilian knockout artist ever makes it to the Octagon.
