Ronda Rousey is married to former UFC star Travis Browne.

Travis Browne, born on July 17, 1982, is a talented MMA fighter hailing from Hawaii. His path in the world of mixed martial arts began relatively late compared to many others. Browne started his professional career by showcasing his skills in promotions like Bellator, Gladiator Challenge, and King of the Cage, where he boasted an impressive undefeated record of 9-0. In 2010, the UFC recognized his potential and signed him, leading to his debut on the widely acclaimed reality series, 'The Ultimate Fighter'.

During his early days in the UFC, Browne experienced a successful run, securing a record of 8-3-1 in his first 12 fights. However, he faced a challenging period between 2016 and 2017 when he encountered a four-fight losing streak. These losses came at the hands of renowned opponents such as Cain Velasquez, Fabricio Werdum, Derrick Lewis, and Aleksei Oleinik. Despite this setback, Browne's journey in the octagon showcased his resilience and determination.
