Ronda Rousey getting married on same day as Mayweather vs. McGregor


Ronda Rousey, 30, will be marrying longtime boyfriend and UFC fighter Travis Browne, 35, tomorrow in Hawaii.

Dana White broke the news on The Rich Eisen show today. He noted he was invited to the wedding but won't be able to attend because it's taking place on the same day as the Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor fight.

White noted on the show that Rousey is in a good place in her life and has not announced her retirement as an MMA fighter.

While the news just broke from White today, the wedding date had been planned for some time as Shayna Baszler had an independent booking for the AWS promotion in Southern California on August 26th, but on the first weekend of July had informed the promotion that Rousey would be getting married on that date and had to cancel her booking.

Rousey has been training in recent weeks for pro wrestling with WWE. The first angle was shot last month at the Mae Young Classic, and the expectation is that a follow-up angle will be shot at the MYC finals on September 12th in Las Vegas.

UFC was interested in her making a return to the Octagon this year but there has been no talk of it of late.
