MMA power couple Ronda Rousey and Travis Browne are both of mixed ethnicities. The former UFC women's bantamweight champion is of English, Polish, Trinidadian and Venezuelan descent. Her husband Browne, meanwhile, was born to a Native Hawaiian father and a European-American mother.
Browne appears to be proud of his diverse ethnicity. The UFC heavyweight's nickname, 'Hapa', is the Hawaiian term for someone of mixed ethnic ancestry.
Rousey and Browne started dating back in 2015 when they were both still on the UFC roster. The couple announced they were engaged on April 20, 2017, and finally tied the knot four months later on August 28.
Both fighters posted photos of their wedding day on their respective social media accounts. The former bantamweight queen wrote in her caption that it was the "happiest day of my life." Meanwhile, Browne reciprocated the message by posting his own heartfelt note.
Ronda Rousey, one of the biggest MMA stars in history, is credited for the inception of the UFC women's roster. She went on a legendary run of 12 straight professional victories before suffering her first defeat at UFC 193. She decided to call time on her career after back-to-back losses against Holly Holm and Amanda Nunes in 2016.
Meanwhile, Travis Browne was a standout in the heavyweight division, with notable wins over Alistair Overeem and Josh Barnett. 'Hapa' hasn't seen action since his 2017 loss to Alexey Oleynik at UFC 213.
