Ronda Rousey Is Dating UFC’s Travis Browne
The first and current UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion is dating fellow fighter Travis Browne. The two reportedly met two years ago when they became teammates at the Glendale Fighting Club in Los Angeles.
Browne confirmed that they are currently “together” in a new interview with The MMA Hour, explaining that they decided to take their relationship to a new level this summer.
“Dating is for children,” Browne said. “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. She’s my woman and I’m her man. There’s no boyfriend, girlfriend stuff. There’s no dating. We’re together.”
According to Browne, 33, he got to know Rousey, 28, after working with her for years.
“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,” he said. “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.”
Browne has two children — sons Kaleo and Keawe — with ex-wife Erin Browne. In July, he was accused of physically assaulting by girlfriend Jenna Renee Webb, though an investigation was conducted by UFC found no conclusive evidence of domestic violence.
