Travis Browne Back on the Road to the UFC Heavyweight Title
Thanks to a resounding third-round finish, Travis Browne is once again back on the road to the UFC heavyweight title.
Browne rebounded from a loss in his most recent bout last May, starting what he hopes is a memorable 2016 in strong fashion with a third-round TKO over Matt Mitrione at UFC Fight Night 81 at TD Garden in Boston. The bout aired live on Fox Sports One and gave Browne (18-3-1, 9-3-1) his second win his last three fights.
It also was a showcase for Browne's vast array of skills, most notably the finish in an impressive third-round for the UFC veteran.
Browne, who is a partner at Activ8Media, landed a huge punch to Mitrione's eye early in the round. Sensing Mitrione was in trouble, Browne scored a vicious takedown, quickly moving to the mount position.
From that dominant position Browne quickly looked to finish, landing heavy strikes and elbows until the fight was stopped at the 4:09 mark of Round 3.
