[update] Ronda Rousey has admitted that her new boyfriend is her training partner at Glendale Fight Club and fellow UFC fighter Travis Browne. Much has been made of the fact that Browne was recently under scrutiny after his (current) wife released on social media photos of abuse from Browne. Despite the allegations, Rousey has stood by her relationship. She has yet to comment on the spousal abuse allegations specifically at this time.
Who’s Ronda Rousey’s boyfriend? That is the most asked question as of late from media and fans alike. In fact “Ronda Rousey boyfriend” is a top search for the arm bar queen. The current female UFC bantemweight champ may not have much time between her relentless training for title defenses and her budding acting career, but it does not mean that the champ hasn’t tried her luck at relationships. Rumors and accounts of past flings have come and gone. Everything from dating current UFC heavyweight Brendan Schaub in 2014 after pictures came out of the two in Costa Rica together (pics below), to even former welterweight contender Nick Diaz and Rousey getting close in the guard.
We can’t say who she is dating now, if anyone, but we know who she has dated in the past publicly. Rickson Gracie BJJ blackbelt Henry Akins had been Ronda Rousey’s boyfriend for a period of time. The two seemed very close by all accounts, as seen in photos here. Akins is famed as only the third American to receive his BJJ black belt from the BJJ Godfather. Nowadays Rousey is not seen with Akins, but instead with her “Venice crew.” She is close with her head coach Edmond Tarverdyan, and a small circle of friends and fellow fighters in camp. The crew trains out of Tarverdyan’s Glendale Fight Club, where some of the most elite strikers in combat sports today can also be found.
