Though she's one of the toughest women on the planet, Ronda Rousey is human and has been affected by untimely deaths in her family. 

 

The former UFC Bantamweight champion broke down in an all-new episode of Hollywood Medium With Tyler Henry, (set to air on Wednesday), while discussing her father's heartbreaking suicide. She was just eight years old at the time of his passing.

 

In the clip released by E!, Henry begins his reading by telling the WWE star, "They're talking about a vehicle, but putting this around someone's last moments in someone's life. It feels weird. Does that mean anything?" 

"Well, my dad, he had broken his back, and he happened to have a really rare blood disorder that kept him from healing, similar to hemophilia," Rousey replied. "It doesn't allow you to clot your blood."

 

"My dad decided to take matters into his own hands 'cause he was in a huge amount of pain every day," she continued with tears in her eyes. "He couldn't work anymore. He felt like he was just a drag on the family. He was very much the person who takes care of everyone. He drove his car out, and he put a hose in the exhaust." 

 

Watch the emotional clip below. 

I remember that when he passed, I would try to just tell myself that he was on a business trip and he'd be back and that was my way to cope with it.
