Former women’s bantamweight champion and Olympic medalist Ronda Rousey tied the knot with UFC heavyweight Travis Browne in Hawaii this past weekend, and both fighters have started to share photos from their nuptials on social media.
Both Rousey and Browne have posted four photos each from their wedding. For Rousey, the pics were her first Instagram posts since an Aug. 10 video telling fans big news was “coming soon” at her revamped website.
Rousey’s comments on the photos included saying it was the “happiest day” of her life. Browne called Rousey “perfect in every way.”
Browne proposed to Rousey earlier this year while on a trip to New Zealand. The pair had been a couple for a while, and while they were dating Rousey told Ellen DeGeneres she wanted to have Browne’s babies.
When it comes to her work life, Rousey (12-2 MMA, 6-2 UFC) has not fought since a 48-second TKO loss this past December to Amanda Nunes in the UFC 207 main event. She was attempting to win back the bantamweight title she lost to Holly Holm at UFC 193 in November 2015 in one of the most stunning upsets in MMA history.
But while mum on whether or not she’ll fight again – UFC President Dana White doesn’t think she will, and he’s not alone – Rousey has kept busy on movie and TV screens. Along with her recent big-screen roles in “The Expendables 3,” “Furious 7” and “Entourage,” she apppeared as a prisoner in an episode of “Blindspot” and recently was a coach on “Battle of the Network Stars.”
Browne (18-7-1 MMA, 9-7-1 UFC) has had a rough past three and a half years in the octagon. After getting in position to fight for a shot at the title, he lost a decision to Fabricio Werdum in April 2014, which started a 2-6 current run. He has dropped four straight fights to ex-champs Cain Velasquez and Werdum (in a rematch), as well as Derrick Lewis and Oleksiy Oliynyk.
But on Saturday, it was all about Hawaii and the big #Browsey2017 nuptials. Check out the photos below.
