Ronda Rousey just got engaged to Travis Browne, and a wedding is soon to follow

UFC fighter Travis Browne popped the question to Ronda Rousey last week during a trip to New Zealand.

Ronda Rousey is getting married! The former UFC women's bantamweight champion revealed the news after TMZ Sports caught her walking down the street with her beau Travis Browne and a seriously gigantic engagement ring on her finger.

The two have been a couple since 2015 and have managed to keep their relationship out of the media spotlight for the most part (minus some scathing comments from Browne's ex-wife, who also accused the UFC heavyweight of domestic abuse). But after getting the okay from Browne, Rousey broke into a huge smile and declared "We're getting married!"

"We were under a waterfall in New Zealand, and it just felt like the right place to do it," Browne said when asked how he popped the question. And as we'd expect from Rousey, a wedding will be happening quickly. Maybe not as quick as many of her UFC victories, but sooner rather than later.

"I don't know what goes into planning a wedding," Rousey admitted. "It could be really easy. I don't need a lot, just some decorations and some flowers, somewhere to go, somewhere to eat, and people around!"

With a wedding to plan, it sounds like Ronda Rousey is getting pretty comfortable with her life outside of the UFC. While she still hasn’t made an official decision as to whether she’ll continue to fight, she’s already started her switch over to Hollywood and even UFC president Dana White thinks she’s done with the sport. And seeing how happy she looks with Browne compared to the perpetual scowl she wore through her attempted comeback at UFC 207, we’d say White is probably right.
