According to a May 24 report from Bloody Elbow, the UFC 175 pre-fight press conference is now in the books, and it lived up to the hype as the UFC's best media gathering of the year. The stars were out in full force, including UFC bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey, UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman and former middleweight title contender Chael Sonnen.
Adding UFC head honcho Dana White to the mix made it a press conference to remember, with a handful of wacky fighter personalities shining through and fun fan questions stealing the show. Plenty of crazy moments went down at the UFC 175 pre-fight presser, but perhaps the most memorable was Ronda Rousey's announcement that she has a boyfriend.
UFC fans were allowed to ask the fighters questions at the conclusion of the presser, and that's when Rousey made her shocking admission. Rousey, the UFC's female bantamweight champ, hadn't previously been linked to a serious relationship or steady dating partner. Rousey did not reveal who her boyfriend is, only that she is officially off the market.
A fan took to the mic during the question-and-answer portion of the UFC 175 pre-fight presser, and he said he wanted to know if Rousey was available. Rousey responded by saying that she's not out there checking the Tinder dating app. She also said she hasn't made it public about having a boyfriend because she doesn't want people up in her personal business.
White then chimed in before the conversation could go any further, simply ending it by stating that Rousey has a boyfriend. Who is Rousey's mystery man? The answer to that question is still unknown, but it will likely come out in the days and weeks ahead. With the amount of media attention that Rousey gets, its only a matter of time before its revealed who her boyfriend is.
In other action, the fans' question-and-answer session also drew out a lengthy response from White regarding his recent comment that Rousey could defeated boxing world champ Floyd Mayweather in an MMA fight. White said Rousey would win by sweeping out Mayweather's feet and then ending it with a submission.
