GLENDALE, Calif., Oct. 13 (UPI) -- Undefeated UFC superstar Ronda Rousey has confirmed that she is dating fellow UFC fighter Travis Browne.
"I don't talk about my personal life much. That's why it's called 'personal life,'" Rousey told ESPN Monday. "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."
Browne also confirmed the news Monday but would prefer to leave the word "dating" out of it.
"Dating is for children; dating is for kids," Browne told The MMA Hour on Monday. "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," he continued.
The new couple met while training together at the Glendale Fighting Club in Los Angeles two years ago but have only now started to see each other.
"Not once did we ever think about this," Browne said. "It wasn't even a thought that went through our heads at all. So I've gotten to know her through the gym, through all that kind of stuff. I see her for who she is. The fact that she's out there winning ESPYS and the star she is on the movie screen and all that kind of stuff, that's all great. But that's not who I know her as, if that makes sense."
Rousey is preparing for her bout against former world boxing champion Holly Holm on Nov. 14 for UFC 193. A video hyping the fight was released earlier this month.
Browne, who is ranked by ESPN as the No.8 heavyweight in the world, plans to return to the Octagon in the "coming months."
In September, Rousey announced that she would be continuing her foray into Hollywood when she announced that would be starring in MGM's reboot of the 1980s film Road House.
