This is so sweet!
After Ronda Rousey revealed earlier this week that she considered killing herself after losing to Holly Holm in an MMA bout last November, the fighter’s boyfriend, Travis Browne, has come out with an amazing show of support!
Speaking to reporters, Browne — also a fighter himself — recounted how he helped Rousey get out of that dark mental place post-fight, and why it was a no-brainer for him to shower his partner with love during a very rough time:
“I was there to support her in any way I could, just like any man would do for his woman. It’s pretty simple. There’s no magic in it. We go through those dark times and we need someone to lean on. I hate the fact that she had to go through that dark time, but like she said, it happened for a reason and there’s a great purpose. This is our story and this is our life, and I would go through hell and back for her.”
The MMA champ and probable boyfriend of the year continued:
“Obviously we love each other and I’m just glad I could be there for her. That’s what a partner is there for. They are there for support whenever you need them, for good times and bad. We dedicate our lives for this sport and I’m glad I could be there for her and show her that support.”
Rousey went through such a dark place, and as we are learning more about it, it’s refreshing to see that she at least didn’t have to go through it alone.
You go, Travis Browne!!
