Ronda Rousey and Travis Browne dropped a bombshell on Thursday afternoon when she revealed that the mixed martial arts power couple is now engaged. The couple started dating eighteen months ago shortly after Browne separated from his ex-wife.
Rousey has not been seen in the octagon since her second knockout loss in a row to Amanda Nunes at “UFC 207”, but she has been keeping busy with photoshoots all the while being featured in the television series “Blindspot”. Rousey seems to have carved a place for herself away from the octagon, and UFC President Dana White doesn’t expect to see her back anytime soon. Rousey’s friend, Shayna Baszler, also mentioned that it would not surprise her if Rousey were to step into the squared circle.
Browne will be making his way back to the octagon soon enough, hoping to bounce back from his three-fight losing skid he is currently riding. With his losses to Derrick Lewis, Fabricio Werdum, and Cain Velasquez now behind him, Browne is likely hoping to make a triumphant return.
While most of the mixed martial arts community played it safe and wished the super-couple the best in planning their marriage, retired UFC legend Din Thomas decided to play it risky and fire off a joke about the recent engagement:
Oh Snap! Ronda and Travis about to tie the knot. I guess a tie is better than another loss. #imgoingtohell
