UFC star Ronda Rousey gets engaged while on holiday in New Zealand

Ronda Rousey has plenty of reasons to smile as she starts to plan a wedding with fellow UFC star Travis Browne.

MMA star Ronda Rousey is engaged after her partner Travis Browne popped the question during a recent holiday to New Zealand.

The couple announced the news on Friday (NZ time) in an interview with TMZ.

"We're getting married," Rousey said, sporting a large diamond ring.

UFC heavyweight Travis Browne.

Asked how the engagement came about, Browne said: "We were out under a waterfall in New Zealand and it felt like the right place to do it."

They were on a hike "about a week ago".


Rousey said they did not have a date or location for the wedding planned at the moment.

"Soon, but I don't know what goes into planning a wedding," Rousey said.

"It could be really easy. I don't really want a lot. We don't really need decorations or flowers, just somewhere to go and something to eat and some people around."

The fighting couple announced their relationship 18 months ago.

It's doubtful that Rousey will continue in UFC after losing consecutive fights via knockouts by Holly Holm and Amanda Nunes.

The 34-year-old Browne is a longtime contender in the UFC heavyweight division. He has lost of five of his last seven fights and meets Aleksei Oleinik on July 8 at UFC213.
