Ronda Rousey hasn’t really spoken publicly since her loss to Holly Holm, outside of a statement posted to Instagram. However, she has spoken to UFC president Dana White regularly since UFC 193 on Nov. 14.

White told “Off The Record” with Michael Landsberg on Thursday that he and UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta sat down with Rousey earlier this week in Las Vegas. And what Rousey said shouldn’t really come as a surprise to anyone.

“I’ve talked to her almost everyday after the fight and when she sat down with me and Lorenzo a few days ago, she said, ‘I was exhausted going into that fight. I was exhausted mentally, physically, emotional,'” White said. “She had a lot of personal things going on, too, with her family.”

Holm knocked Rousey out in the second round with a head kick to become the new UFC women’s bantamweight champion. Coming in, Holm was a massive underdog.

Rousey is the most well-known MMA fighter on the planet. She had a ton on her plate leading up to UFC 193, including the responsibility to draw a UFC record crowd of more than 55,000 to Etihad Stadium in Melbourne, Australia for the fight with Holm.
