Former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey confirmed Thursday she’s engaged to marry fellow UFC fighter Travis Browne.

TMZ Sports passed along the news. Browne proposed in New Zealand “about a week ago,” and Rousey accepted. She said the couple is hoping for a wedding “soon” but didn’t provide an official date.

Rousey, 30, rose to superstardom with a dominant series of results en route to building a 12-0 MMA record, winning both the Strikeforce and UFC bantamweight titles along the way.

The mainstream attention allowed the 2008 Olympic bronze medalist in judo to acquire more opportunities outside of the Octagon. She earned roles in multiple movies, including The Expendables 3 and Furious 7, and hosted NBC’s Saturday Night Live.

Her competitive success came to a screeching halt over the past two years. She suffered back-to-back knockout losses to Holly Holm at UFC 193 and Amanda Nunes at UFC 207.
