Ronda Rousey is known worldwide for her powerhouse fighting style within the UFC ring, but the Olympic bronze medalist got the whole world talking about an entirely different kind of ring during her hosting gig on Saturday Night Live this weekend. The UFC superstar sparked some serious engagement rumors when she was seen flaunting a diamond sparkler on that special finger on the SNL stage.
Is Rousey exchanging the ringside bell for wedding bells? Rousey has been previously linked to fellow UFC fighter Travis Browne, after the tough twosome was seen showing off some PDA during a recent coffee date. And during her SNL appearance over the weekend that large diamond solitaire on Rousey's left hand was certainly hard to miss! It did look awfully like an engagement ring, did it not?
Unfortunately for us, it looks like the only important ring in Ronda's life right now is one of the UFC variety! Rousey's rep knocked out those pesky engagement rumors, revealing to Entertainment Tonight that the sparkler in question was simply an accessory she had tried on behind-the-scenes.

While we're super disappointed we won't be seeing a UFC wedding anytime time soon (if anyone can make a sports bra work with a wedding dress, it's Rousey!), the mixed martial artist knocked out her TV appearance like a true champ. "So excited to be here because this will be the first time I'll be live on television without getting punched in the face!" Rousey hilarious noted during the show that included castmates posing as sports announcers, Kenan Thompson as Rousey's coach, and Cecily Strong as a ring girl, holding up a sign signaling Round Two.
A killer show and slaying engagement speculation? Ding, ding ding! Rousey — 1, Rumor Mill — 0.
