The night before New Year's Eve match will surely be a spectacle, given that it's Rousey's chance to reclaim her title after a loss the fighter has admitted in several interviews took quite a toll.

"Honestly, like, my thought, in the medical room, down in the corner, I was like, 'What am I anymore if I'm not this?'" Rousey candidly shared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in February, fighting back tears. "And I was literally sitting there and thinking about killing myself, and 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.'"
