Rousey finds beau in MMA heavyweight
It looks like someone has tamed the “rowdy” one.
UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey has struck a romantic relationship with heavyweight Travis Browne, but the undefeated champ isn’t really willing to divulge details.
“I don’t talk about my personal life much, that’s why it’s called ‘personal life,’” Rousey told ESPN. “It’s true that Travis and I are in a relationship. I’ve really enjoyed the time we have spent together and getting to know one another. And that’s all I’m going to say about it.”
Browne, 33, confirmed the relationship first in a report of MMAFighting.com, saying: “She’s my woman and I’m her man. There’s no boyfriend, girlfriend stuff. There’s no dating. We’re together.”
Rumors of the two’s relationship have swirled since August, when Browne’s wife, Jenna Renee Webb, alleged that the two were seeing each other.
The 6-foot-7 heavyweight bared that the two started seeing each other after Browne started training at Glendale Fighting Club, the same gym where Rousey trained.
Though the two finally came out in the open with their relationship, they said they are still focused on their upcoming fights with Browne squaring off with Matt Mitrione at UFC Fight Night 81, and Rousey bracing for Holly Holm at the main event of UFC 193.
