Ronda Rousey is a tough woman — arguably one of the toughest in the world — which means she needs an equally tough man by her side. Does Travis Browne, fit the bill? Ronda seems to think so, after all, they are both UFC stars! Get to know the REAL Travis Browne below!
Ronda Rousey, 28, is in love, and the lucky man is Travis Browne, 33. After keeping their relationship under wraps for nearly six months, the couple finally went public about their love in October 2015. Since then the pair has been inseparable and she was even spotted sporting a rather large ring on Jan. 23 while on the set of SNL. Are wedding bells in Ronda and Travis’ near future? Maybe! But before we get ahead of ourselves, here are five fast facts about Ronda’s man right here!
1. He’s been married before — and still is!
That’s right, not only does Travis have an ex wife, Erin Browne, but he’s also technically still married to fitness model Jenna Renee Webb. So just what is Ronda doing with a married man? Travis and his estranged wife are completely separated and are in the process of filing for divorce. Good news for Ronda! Jenna however, is not too thrilled about her husband’s new flame.
2. He’s been accused of domestic violence.
Travis’ estranged wife, Jenna, claimed that the reason the pair split is because Travis assaulted her physically as well as abused her mentally and emotionally. Jenna even posted photos of massive bruises on her body via Instagram. After Travis was accused of domestic violence, fans couldn’t believe Ronda was dating an alleged wife beater. “It’s hard, it’s really hard. I’m very anti-domestic violence,” Ronda revealed to ESPN. “But I know that he didn’t do anything. Now I’m put in a situation where I’m finally happy with somebody that respects me and cares about me, and I’m like, ‘What do I do?’ … Why can’t [people] have some confidence or trust in me that I would make a good decision and be with a good man regardless of how it looks.” Travis was suspended by the UFC but was reinstated when their independent investigation found “inconclusive evidence” of any assault. His first wife, Erin, wasn’t surprised and revealed that Travis would never do something like that.
3. He is a UFC fighter with an estimated net worth of $500,000.
For those who aren’t super familiar with the UFC, the acronym stands for: Ultimate Fighting Championship, and as of June 20, 2015, Travis is ranked number 5 in official UFC Heavyweight rankings. Pretty impressive! The 238-pound fighter has been competing since 2009 and his current mixed martial arts record is 18 wins and 3 losses — not too shabby!
4. He had an unconventional childhood.
Travis grew up in Hawaii where his father was a gang member and always seemed to be in and out of trouble with the law. His father would even drive around in his Jeep with a big gun on his lap while Travis was sitting in the passenger seat next to him. Drugs were also constantly in sight, according to Yahoo Sports. However, despite his father’s actions, Travis loved him very much and he believes his father did the best he could to help him.
5. He has kids of his own and focuses on being the best father he can be.
Travis and his first wife, Erin, have two young sons together named Kaleo and Keawe. He wants to raise his children with morals and values, and for them to believe what their parents tell them. Sounds like a great father to us!
