Browne sidelined until DV investigation concludes
UFC heavyweight Travis Browne will not be fighting in the octagon until an investigation into domestic violence claims is concluded.
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.
@noochsig I'm pretty disgusted...more so in her. But I've known this for a while.— Jenna Renee (@JennaReneeFit) August 24, 2015
@jenfoucheris I expected more from her. She should be ashamed of herself— Jenna Renee (@JennaReneeFit) August 24, 2015
@noochsig honestly it's only a matter of time that she sees his true colors.— Jenna Renee (@JennaReneeFit) August 24, 2015
@noochsig let's hope it doesn't go there but if it does she chose to be w/ a married man undergoing investigation for DV. I did my part.— Jenna Renee (@JennaReneeFit) August 24, 2015
@noochsig best of luck to them both— Jenna Renee (@JennaReneeFit) August 24, 2015
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.
