Travis Browne confirms Ronda Rousey is his girlfriend
UFC fighter Travis Browne confirmed on Monday that he is in a relationship with MMA superstar Ronda Rousey.
Browne talked about the relationship during an appearance on “The MMA Hour” and said things are serious with them.
“Dating is for children,” Browne said via MMA Fighting. “Dating is for kids. Over the summer, through all the s— 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.”
Browne and Rousey train together at Glendale Fighting Club in Southern California. The 6-foot-7 Hawaiian fighter has been training in Glendale with Rousey for over a year, and he says they started off as work acquaintances.
“It’s not weird at all,” he said of training together. “Like I said, we didn’t start off interested in each other and now we have to work together. We worked together when we were just acquaintances.”
Browne said that despite what the public sees of Rousey — her appearances in movies, winning awards, exploding in popularity — she is very grounded and a compassionate person.
Rousey has not commented on the relationship, but she drew criticism for being with Browne, who was accused of abusing his estranged wife. Browne’s estranged wife Jenna Webb ripped Rousey in August for being together with Browne. Browne separated from Webb in June.
