Travis Borwne Profile
The 6 foot 7 seven inch Travis Browne began fighting in 2009. Browne was already studying Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Boxing, and took his first pro fight Tijuana, Mexico. Browne defeated his opponent in under one minute of the first round, and he has been winning fights since. Browne went on to fight seven times in 2009, and he finished all but one opponent. His last fight in 2009 didn’t even pass the 10 second mark of the first round, and he sent a message to all fight promotions that he was for real.
With his undeniable momentum, regional organization VFC offered Browne a heavyweight title shot against future Ultimate Fighter contestant Abe Wagner, and for the second time in two fights he finished his opponent in under 10 seconds. Less than three weeks later, another regional organization Gladiator Challenge offered Browne a title shot, and once again Browne finished his opponent in less than 1 minute.
After winning two titles in one month, Travis Browne was invited to fight for the UFC, and he would fight James McSweeney. Browne used his height and his reach to TKO McSweeney late int he first round, and with a 10-0 record the UFC wanted to see if Browne could handle a step up in competition. Browne was then slated to fight grizzled veteran Chieck Kongo at UFC 120. Browne won the first round and the second went to Kongo. After being warned in the third round for grabbing the shorts of Browne, the ref deducted a point from Kongo in a round he was likely winning. Many fans voiced disgust when Kongo kept grabbing the shorts of Browne and the ref didn’t take any more points, a move that would have given Browne the win. However, when the cards were added it up the fight was scored a unanimous draw, and to date is the only non-win on Browne’s record. In May of this year, Browne squared off against Dutch striking phenom Stefan Struve, and going into the fight Browne was the underdog against the 6’11 Dutchmen. Browne went right back to his winning ways, and knocked out Struve at 4:11 of the first round.
Travis Browne is set to face Rob Broughton at UFC 135 in Denver, Colorado.
