It's been a recent rumor in the MMA world that UFC bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey is dating Travis Browne, now Browne's wife is confirming the story.

Looks like Ronda Rousey's personal life just became a lot more public. Over the past couple weeks, rumors have been cropping up around the internet that the UFC's biggest star and 135 lb champ has been dating one of the promotion's current persona non grata. The man in question? Current UFC heavyweight Travis Browne, who is under investigation by the UFC after his wife publicly accused him of domestic violence back in July.

While Browne's relationship with the UFC has been put on hold lately, including being pulled from recent public events, it seems he's been keeping a much more private relationship with Rousey. Private, at least, until a picture of the two started surfacing on Twitter, and Browne's estranged wife confirmed that he and the bantamweight champion were seeing one another.

Neither Rousey nor Browne have spoken about a relationship between the two of them publicly to date, so we really only have circumstantial evidence along with Browne's wife's word on it. If the rumors are true, however, things could get very interesting for Rousey over the next few weeks.
