The long kept secret is finally out in the open. The rumours were strong and now Travis Browne has made the claims official. According to MMA Junkie, Browne, a UFC heavy weight contender, is in a relationship with the dominant UFC women’s bantamweight champion, Ronda Rousey.
They have been training alongside each other at the Glendale Fighting Club in Glendale, California and Browne exclaimed not to term their relationship as “Dating”.
While talking to the MMA Hour, Browne said, “Dating is for children, 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.”
Browne was accused of domestic violence as his ex Jenna Renee Webb posted photos of alleged injuries as proof to claims that the 6’7” fighter had attacked her.
Though she refrained from pressing charges against him, UFC officials took the matter in their own hands to recruit an FBI agent with more than 25 years of experience to investigate into the matter that “included interviews with multiple subjects associated with the principals, as well as the principals themselves,” according to sources.
The Officials also released a statement which read, “The investigation found inconclusive evidence to support claims of alleged domestic violence involving Browne, and inconclusive evidence that Browne had violated the UFC Fighter Conduct Policy. As a result, UFC has lifted Browne’s temporary suspension and anticipates him returning to competition in the coming months. UFC takes allegations of domestic violence very seriously, and they will be investigated for their validity. If proven true with facts, it will result in swift action on our part.”
Browne was reinstated and is set to return to competition, reported the TMZ. While Browne publicly admitted to the relationship, Rousey who is considered to be UFC’s biggest star, has not released any official statement till now.
