MMA’s most famous couple?
Although both their fighting careers have taken u-turns lately, Ronda Rousey and Travis Browne are still very much in the public eye. For Rousey, the ex-bantamweight queen lost her second bout in a row at UFC 207.
Facing Amanda Nunes, ‘Rowdy’ got squashed in a sub-round demolition TKO. Browne’s recent form is arguably worse, having lost his last three fights in a row. After his most recent loss, the man that KO’d him, Derrick Lewis, unleashed a slew of offensive memes about Rousey and Browne.
With all the harrowing losses and online hate from fighters and fans alike, Rousey and Browne continue on. Both have experienced brutal losses, but ‘Hapa’ remains active with a UFC 213 bout set.
Talking with TMZ earlier today, Rousey and Browne dropped the bombshell announcement-they are getting married!
“We’re getting married,” Said Rousey.
“We were out under a waterfall in New Zealand and it felt like the right place to do it,” Browne said.
“Soon, but I don’t know what goes into planning a wedding,” Rousey said. “It could be really easy. I don’t really want a lot. We don’t really need decorations or flowers, just somewhere to go and something to eat and some people around.”
No word yet on when and where, but MMA’s most famous couple are getting hitched. Let’s hope Edmond Tarverdyan is the best man, so we can get more classic quotes like ‘head movement!’ and CLIIIINCH to make viral videos with.
Recently discussing Rousey, UFC president Dana White essentially put the final nail in her career coffin. Telling reporters she ‘hadn’t officially retired,’ White revealed Rousey probably ‘won’t ever fight again.’
As the sport moves on, and sadly Rousey and Browne don’t leave coach Edmond, perhaps the retired life is best for them both.
