New York City, NY, United States (4E) – Ronda Rousey has sparked engagement rumors after she was spotted wearing a diamond ring on that finger as she hosted “Saturday Night Live.”
The 28-year-old MMA fighter and former UFC’s Women Bantamweight champion appeared on the stage with Selena Gomez as the musical guest and throughout her skits, she was seen wearing the ring. Reports then surfaced saying that she and boyfriend Travis Browne, also part of the UFC family, are getting married soon.
The sparkler is a large diamond solitaire with a gold band and has been seen in her opening spiel with Gomez Cecily Strong and the other skits of the show. In the opening spiel, the three women talked about how strong and independent they are but they decided to call boys altogether. As Rousey lifted her hand to phone someone, the sparkler was seen.
She was also spotted wearing the same ring during her monologue . She took the opportunity to dance with Gomez and even congratulate Holly Holm, the Australian MMA fighter who beat her, which marked Rousey’s first loss in her UFC darer. She was also seen punching Justin Bieber played by Kate McKinnon .
The ring was also spotted in the promotional photos of “Saturday Night Live” posted on Twitter.
Browne and Rousey started dating in August last year and went public with their relationship last October. In an interview, Rousey shared during that time, "I don't talk about my personal life much. That's why it's called 'personal life. It's true that Travis and I are in a relationship. I've really enjoyed the time we have spent together and getting to know one another. And that's all I'm going to say about it."
As for Browne, he said that he does not want to label their relationship and just wanted to say that Rousey is his woman and he is her man.
They were spotted earlier this month smooching at a parking lot in Los Angeles. It seemed like Browne was visiting Rousey in Los Angeles after she has been on low key since her defeat from Holm.
Neither of the two have commented on the rumors that Rousey is engaged to Browne.
