Conor McGregor isn’t the only UFC star with an important place to be on Saturday.

Perhaps taking advantage of fans and media being fixated on McGregor’s boxing match with Floyd Mayweather, former women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey will apparently tie the knot with fellow fighter Travis Browne on the same day as the Floyd Mayweather-McGregor mega event, according to UFC president Dana White.

“Ronda Rousey gets married tomorrow. Tomorrow is her wedding,” White revealed on The Rich Eisen Show on Friday. “And 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.”

Asked whether she and Browne would be spending their honeymoon in Vegas at ringside with the boss, White said that it would be impossible due to him just getting the invitation.

He described the conversation as such:

“Of all the days — she’s like, ‘I’m getting married.’

‘Congratulations.’

‘Will you come to the wedding?’

I said, ‘Absolutely.’

‘The wedding’s tomorrow.’”

Rousey and Browne announced their engagement this past April without announcing a date for the ceremony, so it’s unclear whether this was the plan from day one or if this was a last minute decision.
