Ronda Rousey vs Travis Browne Skipped Mayweather vs McGregor for This

Former women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey vs Travis Browne Wed

While most of us are focused on watching the fight last week between Floyd Mayweather Jr and Conor McGregor, two other MMA fighters skipped the epic event and focused on their own momentous event themselves. 
Somewhere in Hawaii, the 30-year-old Ronda Rousey finally weds his long time boyfriend and UFC heavyweight contender Travis Browne. This was a long time coming and we are glad that the two have decided to tie the knot and get some victory for themselves. 
Ronda Rousey and Travis Browne have both suffered a string of losses in their MMA career and the wedding might just be what they needed to finally get into that winning column, well at least in life. 
Rousey last fought December 30, 2016, to Amanda Nunes and to Holly Holmes a year before that and lost to both. On the other hand, his new partner in life has suffered 4 fights in a row and the last one was just about a month ago. 

We wish the Browne family well and congratulations on your wedding!


UFC Fight Night 105: Derrick Lewis vs. Travis Browne in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada

An explosive heavyweight matchup will make the move from Brooklyn to Halifax, as the bout between No. 8-ranked contender Derrick “The Black Beast” Lewis and No. 9-ranked Travis Browne is now the five-round main event of UFC Fight Night on Feb. 19.

Lewis vs. Browne was originally scheduled to take place on the UFC 208 card in Brooklyn on Feb. 11. With an injury to Stefan Struve forcing him out of his Halifax main event against Junior Dos Santos, the former bout was moved to Feb. 19.

In a match also made official on January 16, a new chapter begins in the career of former welterweight champion Johny Hendricks, as “Bigg Rigg” makes his middleweight debut against Hector Lombard. UFC welterweight champion of the world in 2014, Texas’ Hendricks has had his battles with the scale at times, but after a controversial decision loss to Neil Magny at UFC 207, the former Oklahoma State University wrestling standout has decided to battle it out with the best at 185 pounds. That quest begins with his intriguing showdown against Lombard, a member of the 2000 Cuban Olympic judo team whose speed, power and grappling prowess make him a threat to anyone in the world.

Added to the UFC Fight Night event as well is a clash of veteran bantamweight contenders, as No. 7-ranked Sara McMann faces No. 8-ranked Liz Carmouche. Plus, Canada’s own Ryan Janes battles Gerald Meerschaert in a middleweight bout and unbeaten Newfoundland native Gavin Tucker makes his Octagon debut against hard-hitting featherweight Sam Sicilia.

A pair of injuries to Gilbert Burns and Alvaro Herrera also produced a lightweight bout for Halifax, with Paul Felder now facing Alessandro Ricci after their bouts with Burns and Herrera, respectively, were called off.

Here’s the official fight card:

Ronda Rousey Not Returning at UFC 205 and is Expecting with Travis Browne’s Baby?

Former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey stayed out of the limelight since Holly Holm gave her a 1 into her loss column record at UFC 193. The division have had two champions in Rowdy’s absence already. Holm was choked out by Miesha Tate in March, then Tate failed to her first title defense as Amanda Nunes pummeled and eventually choked her out at UFC 200 earlier this month.

Not only UFC President Dana White but fight fans around the world are hopeful that Rousey would make her comeback at UFC 205 on November 12 when the company heads to The World’s Famous Arena, but has not given any indication as to when she will be back. It was also in November 2015 when she lost to Holm at UFC 193.

She recently guests on Ellen where she confessed that she has been in deep depression that she wanted to have babies with Travis Browne so she had a reason to live. Browne is also a UFC fighter who competes as a heavyweight and ranked no. 7 and was also booked at UFC 200. Former heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez knocked him out.

Now, Rousey’s long-time rival Cristiane Cyborg Justino is congratulating her because she is hearing rumors Rousey may actually be pregnant:
