Sporting News

Ronda Rousey is sporting a different kind of ring these days.

After shooting down reports the couple was engaged last January, the UFC star is officially engaged to fellow fighter Travis Browne, TMZ Sports has reported.

According to the report, Browne proposed to Rousey last week while the pair vacationed in New Zealand. Browne decided to pop the question under a waterfall because "it felt like the right place to do it."

Rousey said she and Browne, who have been together since 2015, are hoping for a wedding "soon" but have yet to set a date.

After suffering a brutal defeat to Amanda Nunes in UFC 207 in December, many observers have expressed doubt about Rousey returning to the octagon.

UFC boss Dana White last week said it was looking very unlikely.

"Ronda and I talk maybe once a week, once every two weeks," White responded when asked about Rousey at the UFC 210 post-fight press conference.

"She has not said anything to me about a comeback."

She recently hired a nutritionist, leading to renewed speculation about a possible desire to return to fighting, but White thinks the speculation doesn't lead to anything concrete.

He thinks that his former women's bantamweight champion has called it quits on her fighting career.

"If I had to guess, I would guess that she will not come back."

The 30-year-old has expressed a desire to develop her acting career and will play a prison inmate in the NBC drama "Blindspot " after appearing in "Entourage," "Furious 7" and "The Expendables 3."
