Earlier this month, on the Ellen Degeneres Show, former UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey told the talk show host that she believes that she's "undefeated."

Rousey said:

"I really do believe I'm still undefeated because being defeated is a choice. Everyone has losses in their life, but I choose to always be undefeated."

It's fair to say that this was more of an visceral feeling rather than a literal one, but none the less, one person that does't take issue with it is the person you... well... defeated her, Holly Holm.

Via MMA Mania:

"I feel like, that's OK with me. Maybe that's something that is coming out of her mouth that doesn't really want to fully take in everything. I know for me any loss that I've had I look at it like, it is a very, very hard thing to swallow. But you gotta be honest with yourself."
"Maybe she needs to feel like she's undefeated and on top and that's OK for me."

With the win over Rousey, Holm extended her MMA unbeaten streak to 10, but she's no stranger to loss. During her time as a boxer, Holm racked up a 32-3-4 record. Her knockout loss to Anne Mathis in 2011 was devastating and it took time for the champion to rebound back.

"I lost focus, I didn't perform well, I didn't do what I was supposed to do. And for me I needed to be honest with myself in order for me to get better."

Next up for the current UFC champion is a fight against Miesha Tate this Saturday in Las Vegas.
