It was revealed last summer former UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey and top ranked heavyweight Travis Browne began a relationship. Anytime Rousey has been asked about the matter, she doesn't answer the question and shuns the reporter who asked the question. Browne has spoken about the relationship on occasion.
In an interview with ESPN.com's Brett Okamoto to preview his UFC 203 bout against former UFC heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum, The No.7 ranked heavyweight discussed how the "Rowdy" one is doing. He also made it seem like Rousey will be returning to the octagon and had a message for whoever the opponent will be.
"Physically and mentally doing great," Browne stated. "I feel bad for whoever's next."
Rousey has been on hiatus since she lost her title by second knockout to Holly Holm at UFC 193 last November. She has refused to do any interviews regarding her MMA future.
Many have questioned whether she will even return to the sport. UFC president Dana White believes Rousey will return and when she does, her first fight will be against whoever is holding the 135-pound title. Right now, the titleholder is Amanda Nunes after defeated Miesha Tate at UFC 200 by first round submission. White said last week she will not return at UFC 205. Fox Sports reported last week Rousey is plotting her return and could fight at the year-end show on Dec. 30.
UFC 203 takes place on Sept. 10 from the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland. The main event features Stipe Miocic defending the UFC heavyweight title against Alistair Overeem. The card also features the UFC debut of former WWE champion CM Punk when he goes up against Mickey Gall.
