During Wednesday’s Afternoon Press Box, Darren and the boys were joined by UFC heavyweight Travis Browne (11-0-1), who is coming of a “knockout of the night” performance against Stefan Struve at UFC 130 this past weekend.
Browne, a 29-year-old Hawaiian, talked about his game plan going into the fight and what it felt like to pocket $70,000 for his first round Superman punch KO of “The Skyscraper”. Browne also talked about his preparation for the bout and how his height and speed played a role against the 6′ 11″ opponent.
Browne discussed where he sees himself within the UFC’s heavyweight ranks and how far he feels he is away from a title shot. He also pondered a potential fight with Frank Mir, Dave “Pee Wee” Herman, as well as a rematch with Cheick Kongo, who he fought to a draw at UFC 120 last October.
In addition to talking with Browne, the guys recap UFC 130, discuss Quinton “Rampage” Jackson‘s win over Matt Hamill, and how “Rampage” matches up against UFC light heavyweight champ Jon “Bones” Jones. The guys also look ahead at some upcoming fights and much more.
