Former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey announced that she is four months pregnant yesterday via her Instagram page.
“I can’t hide it anymore, so it’s time to show it off,” Rousey said while seated next to her husband and former UFC heavyweight, Travis Browne. The couple have been married since 2017.

Rousey won judo bronze at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. She then started a successful mixed martial arts career with Strikeforce before joining the UFC when the company was acquired by Zuffa, the then parent company of the UFC.
Following her reign as one of the most successful female MMA fighters on the planet, Rousey then joined the WWE to start a career in pro wrestling.
Rousey left the world of MMA with a record of 12-2. She remained undefeated until she defended her title against Holly Holm at UFC 193 in Australia in November 2015. The head kick knockout landed by Holm is one of the most highlighted KO’s in the sport.
“Rowdy” would return a year later to lose by knockout once again, this time at the hands of arguably the greatest female fighter on the planet in Amanda Nunes.
