UFC: 5 Power Couples That Are Still Going Strong (And 5 That Didn’t Last)

Sometimes an MMA gym is the perfect place to turn a sparring partner into a life partner.


Dating a co-worker isn't all that unusual. After all, most people spend more time at work than anywhere else, thus making it a logical place to meet the guy or gal of one's dreams.

While fighting in a cage is certainly a unique way to make a living, MMA competitors have also been known to fraternize with their co-workers. In truth, who could better understand the trials and tribulations a fighter goes through than a fellow mixed martial artist? Which is why we have seen so many of the sport's top stars canoodling with each other outside of the gym. In fact, some of the UFC's most eligible bachelors and bachelorettes have been romantically linked to more than one fighter though usually not at the same time.

Sadly, many of our favorite MMA couples didn't last. That being said, more than a few wound up making their sparring partner their eventual life partners as well.

With that in mind, it's time to take a closer look at 10 of most high-profile MMA couples in recent years. We'll find out which couples are still going strong and which duos ended up going their separate ways.
