Darren McFarland, Brad Hopkins, Ed Clay and Chris Pappas are back! Every Thursday morning from 9-10 a.m. CT these guys devote an hour to MMA and have some of the biggest names in the sport on as guests.
Today’s guest was UFC heavyweight Travis Browne (11-0-1), who will be fighting Rob Broughton (15-5-1) on Saturday’s UFC 135 main card at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colo. Browne talked about how he matches up with Broughton and said he feels the Englishman will be a tougher fight for him than Stefan Struve, who Browne knocked out back in May.
Browne also discussed what he learned in his bout with Cheick Kongo, which is the only “non-win” on his record (they fought to a draw). He talked about moving his UFC 135 training camp to Greg Jackson’s and the benefits of training there in the high altitude of Albuquerque.
Browne shared his opinion about teammate Jon Jones and dismissed the idea that Jones has somehow changed or become “cocky” since winning the UFC light heavyweight title.
In addition to talking with Browne, Darren and the guys also talked about Jake Shields‘ recent hardship and his loss to Jake Ellenberger last week. They discussed some of the other matches on the UFC 135 card, including the main event between Quinton Jackson and UFC light heavyweight champ Jon Jones, they took some phone calls, talked UFC on FOX and much more.
