The rumours have been circulating that UFC Heavyweight Travis Browne and UFC Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey have been dating but we now can confirm that these rumours are true. Browne confirmed the news on on MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani stating:
“Dating is for children, Dating is for kids. Over the summer, through all the sh*t that I had to shuffle through, that I had to sift through, Ronda and I started talking throughout the summer and I’ll say now that we are together. There’s no boyfriend, girlfriend stuff. There’s no dating. We’re together. I’ve gotten to know her through the gym, through all that kind of stuff. I see her for who she is.The fact that she’s out there winning ESPYS and the star she is on the movie screen and all that kind of stuff, that’s all great. But that’s not who I know her as, if that makes sense. I know her as one of the hardest working athletes that I’ve ever seen, in this gym busting her butt on a daily basis. And through our own personal experiences of how compassionate and really how much of a sweetheart she really is. That’s what a lot of people don’t see out of her. They see that, but they don’t really get to experience that.”
Travis Browne had been accused of domestic abuse by his estranged wife but the UFC’s third party investigation recently concluded that there was no substantial evidence. Rousey and Browne trained together at Glendale Fighting Club in Los Angeles before the pair started to develop feelings for one an other. Rumours had been circulating for some time but Rousey nor Brown had publicly confirmed the relationship until now.
