Ronda Rousey boyfriend Travis Browne is complicated matter

Travis Browne Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey has publicly confirmed that she is in a relationship with boyfriend Travis Browne, who is also a UFC fighter. Though we do not know the extent of their relationship beyond it being serious, we do know that the public perception of the relationship makes it complicated.

One of the reasons for this has to do with Browne’s history with his estranged wife.

Browne, 33, was accused by his ex-wife Jenna Renee Webb in July of committing domestic violence against her. She even posted some serious photo evidence.

Browne denied the allegations and was even pulled from a UFC event as the matter was investigated. His manager accused Webb of posting the allegations to get revenge on Browne for cheating on her. The woman Browne apparently was cheating on Webb with was Rousey.

Rousey and Browne became closer after Browne started training with Rousey at her fight club in Glendale last year. Browne confirmed their relationship last month and said they began talking over the summer. He also took offense to people saying they were “dating,” because he finds that to be a childish term for two adults.

After Browne made his comments about Rousey in an interview, she was moved to release a statement on the matter too.

“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.”

Rousey has kept quiet on her dating past throughout most of her time in the spotlight. About they only thing she has shared is that she loves to have a lot of sex before fights. She also revealed in her book that she had a boyfriend she beat up after catching him taking nude photos of her without her permission.

Aside from the issue of Rousey dating a man who has a wife, she has caught flak for dating someone accused of domestic violence. Some view that as hypocritical because she has criticized Floyd Mayweather for being a woman beater.
