WHEN DID THEY MEET

The couple first met in 2012 at a time when UFC didn’t allow women to take part. At the time, the athletes were MMA fighters and they met each other at an MMA gym in Florida.

In 2016, Nunes won the women’s bantamweight belt and became the first openly LGBTQ+ UFC champion. Soon after that, she proposed to Ansaroff in August 2018 who said yes.

The couple now trains together even though they compete in different weight classes. In 2019, Ansaroff lost a match and decided to take some time off for personal reasons.

Before Ansaroff and Nunes welcomed their bundle of joy, they decided to have a stunning pregnancy shoot.

She decided her time off was a good time to get pregnant. According to some sources, the sportswoman continued exercising and staying in shape while pregnant.
