Mayweather vs. McGregor: Ronda Rousey Getting Married During Mega-Fight

The AP

Aug. 26 (UPI) — UFC legend Ronda Rousey has a big role in Saturday night’s festivities: she’s getting married.

Rousey won’t be in Las Vegas at T-Mobile Arena for the Floyd Mayweatherand Conor McGregor fight. She’ll be getting hitched to fiancé, and fellow UFC fighter, Travis Browne.

“Ronda Rousey gets married tomorrow,” White told The Rich Eisen Show on Friday. “Tomorrow is her wedding. She’s in a good place. She’s really happy and she hasn’t announced her retirement or anything like that. She’s focusing on this wedding.”

Rousey and Browne were engaged in April during a trip to New Zealand.

She gets married…of all the days. She’s like “I’m getting married.” Congratulations. “Will you come to the wedding?’

“I said ‘absolutely.'”

“The wedding is tomorrow.”

Rousey, 30, hasn’t fought since Dec. 30 at UFC 207 in Las Vegas.

White also revealed some other anecdotes about Saturday’s big fight at 9 p.m.

The UFC president was asked by the fight’s producers to find a singer for the Ireland National anthem on short notice. Pop star Demi Lovato is booked to sing the United States national anthem.

White phoned record producer Jimmy Iovine and talked to Bono, but couldn’t put it together because Bono is also attending a wedding Saturday. He did not reveal the artist he was able to secure.

White will attend the bout with his family and friends. New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft will also be at the fight.

Rousey’s wedding takes place in Hawaii. Browne, 35, was born in Honolulu.
