Let the rumors be put to rest.

On Monday morning, during an appearance on The MMA Hour, UFC heavyweight Travis Browne confirmed his relationship with reigning UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey.

“Dating is for kids.” Browne told host Ariel Helwani. “Over the summer, through all the [expletive] that I had to shuffle through, that I had to sift through, Ronda and I started talking throughout the summer and I’ll say now that we are together. She’s my woman and I’m her man. There’s no boyfriend, girlfriend stuff. There’s no dating. We’re together.”

Browne (17-3) has not been seen inside the Octagon since suffering a first round TKO to former teammate Andrei Arlovski at UFC 187 in May. This not only marked Browne’s first stoppage loss since 2012 but marked his second loss in three contests.

Since then “Happa” has been the center of controversy after his estranged ex-wife, Jenna Web, accused him of domestic violence after posting graphic images of bruises on her arms and legs.

The UFC would conduct it’s own, independent, investigation following Webb’s accusation. However, the UFC later revealed their was no conclusive evidence.

Both Browne and Rousey are teammate at Glendale Fight Club in Los Angeles. While Rousey has never been known to discuss her relationships publicly, rumors of her relationship with Browne began to swirl after the two were seen together around California over the last few months.

Browne is currently scheduled to return to action against Matt Mitrione at UFC Fight Night 81 in January.
