Ronda Rousey announces engagement to Travis Browne

Former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey announced her engagement to fellow UFC fighter Travis Browne on Thursday.

The couple confirmed to TMZ Sports that Browne proposed in New Zealand “about a week ago,” under a waterfall in New Zealand about a week ago because “it felt like the right place to do it.” Rousey also added that she hopes the wedding will be soon, but doesn’t know what goes into planning a wedding so she’s keeping “an open mind” about the date.

After winning the first 12 fights of her career, including six title defenses as the first ever UFC women’s bantamweight champion, Rousey has dropped her last two. After getting knocked out by Holly Holm in 2015, she sat out a year before returning to the cage to fight Amanda Nunes last December. But in that fight, she lasted only 48 seconds.

Meanwhile, Browne has lost three straight UFC fights himself, including a second-round knockout loss to Derrick Lewis in February.
