Ronda Rousey Confirms Relationship With UFC Fighter Travis Browne

She’s fast-becoming a household name whether you like fighting or not -- and now undefeated UFC bantamweight champion and megastar athlete, Ronda Rousey, has confirmed she's dating fellow UFC fighter, Travis Browne.

"I don't talk about my personal life much, that's why it's called 'personal life'," Rousey told ESPN in a statement Monday.

"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."

The statement came after Browne let the cat out of the bag earlier on Monday during an interview with confirming rumours that have been floating around since August.

“She’s my woman and I’m her man. There’s no boyfriend, girlfriend stuff. There’s no dating. We’re together,” said Browne.

The pair both train at Glendale Fighting Club.

Browne, a heavyweight champion was accused of domestic violence by his estranged wife after separating from her in June however, a UFC statement cleared Browne after a third-party investigation was conducted, which came back that there was no conclusive evidence of abuse.

Rousey, 28, made headlines in July when she called out Floyd Mayweather’s history of domestic violence on the ESPYs red carpet, saying, “I wonder how Floyd feels being beat by a woman for once" after she won “Best Fighter" over Mayweather.

The mixed martial artist will visit Melbourne in November to defend her bantamweight title against Holly Holm.
