Despite their close relationship, UFC President Dana White won’t be attending Ronda Rousey’s wedding.
The former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Rousey (12-2 MMA, 6-2 UFC) will tie the knot with heavyweight Travis Browne (18-7-1 MMA, 9-7-1 UFC) on Saturday. That, of course, overlaps with the Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor boxing match, which White will be ringside for.
White revealed the scheduling conflict during an interview today on The Rich Eisen Show.
“Ronda Rousey gets married tomorrow,” White said. “Tomorrow is her wedding. She’s in a good place, she’s happy and hasn’t announced her retirement or anything like that, but she’s focusing on this wedding.”
White and Rousey have been close since the biggest star in women’s MMA history entered the UFC in February 2013. Rousey has not competed since a 48-second TKO loss to Amanda Nunes at UFC 207 in December, and while White said he would have loved to attend the wedding, nothing is going to take his attention away from Mayweather vs. McGregor.
“Of all the days (for it to happen),” White said. “She said, ‘I’m getting married. Will you come to the wedding?’ I said, ‘Absolutely.’ The wedding’s tomorrow.”
