It looks like UFC fighters RondaRousey and TravisBrowne will be tying the knot sometime in the not-too-distantfuture.
In a video posted on TMZ Sports , Rousey and Browne confirmed that they are engagedas “Rowdy” showed off a new diamond ring.
“We’re getting married,” Rousey said.
Browne confirmed his relationship with the former bantamweight queenin October 2015 during an appearance on “The MMA Hour.” The pairbonded while training together at Glendale Fighting Club in LosAngeles in the summer of 2015. Back then, Rousey was still theunquestioned queen of the UFC women’s bantamweight division, whileBrowne battled domestic violence accusations from his ex-wife, fitness modelJenna Renee Webb. Webb ultimately did not press charges againstBrowne.
“We were under a waterfall in New Zealand and it felt like theright place to do it,” Browne said of the proposal.
Rousey and Browne currently do not have a date or location set fortheir wedding. Browne is set to face Alexey Oleinik at UFC 213 onJuly 8, so it seems likely that the wedding would occur after thatevent.
“Soon, but I don’t know what goes into planning a wedding,” Rouseysaid. “It could be really easy. I don’t really want a lot. We don’treally need decorations or flowers, just somewhere to go andsomething to eat and some people around.”
Rousey hasn’t competed since suffering a 48-second technicalknockout loss to AmandaNunes at UFC 207 on Dec. 30. UFC President Dana White recentlysaid that while Rousey hasn’t officially retired from MMA, he doesn’t expect her to return .
“I’m very happy for Ronda and I’m looking forward to the wedding,”White told TMZ Sports.
