There was a time when the name Ronda Rousey was simultaneous with women’s MMA. The former UFC women’s bantamweight champion still holds the record for most UFC title defences by a woman. While her name isn’t as respected among the hardcore MMA fans as it once was, you still can’t deny the fact that she brought Women’s MMA on the map. Rousey was also the first woman to headline a UFC and a WWE pay-per-view.
Since her last appearance on TV at WWE Wrestlemania 35, we haven’t seen much of Rousey as a public figure. However, anyone that follows her Instagram or her YouTube channel would know her state of affairs. Along with her husband and former UFC heavyweight Travis Browne she has found peace on their ranch. In the below video, Rousey along with Browne explain their usual day. The Video has over 2m views on YouTube.
Rousey and Browne met in their MMA gym. Both trained under Edmond Tarverdyan at Glendale Fighting Club. Browne is a Hawaii born MMA fighter, last competed in 2017 at UFC 213. While the relationship was a secret initially, Rousey gave it up in an interview with ESPN. In an interview with MMA Fighting, Browne had this to say about his relationship with Rousey -
“Dating is for children," Browne said. "Dating is for kids. Over the summer, through all the sh*t 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."
