UFC superstar Ronda Rousey is tying the knot with her longtime boyfriend Travis Browne after months of speculation, UFC President Dana White has revealed the big news.
White, despite getting invited to Ronda's big day, will however have no option but to skip the event as the wedding coincides with the multi-million dollar boxing fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
"Ronda Rousey gets married tomorrow. Tomorrow is her wedding," White revealed at 'The Rich Eisen Show' on Friday. "And she's in a good place; she's really happy, and she hasn't announced her [UFC] retirement or anything like that. She's focusing on this wedding."

Ronda, one of the greatest female fighters ever in the history of mixed martial arts, suffered mega knockout blows in her career after two successive defeats in the UFC in two years. The 30-year-old lost the UFC women's bantamweight championship to Holly Holm in 2015 and then failed to win the title back against Amanda Nunes in 2016.
