Following domestic abuse allegations from Jenna Renee Webb, ex-girlfriend of UFC heavyweight Travis Browne, the UFC has removed the heavyweight fighter from all Fight Week activities and has issued the following statement:
“UFC is aware of the social media allegations made against heavyweight Travis Browne. The organization requires all athletes to act in an ethical and responsible manner, as mandated by the UFC Fighter Conduct Policy. UFC will not tolerate domestic violence or any other violation of the policy. Every athlete is deserving of due process and this situation, as with any official allegations, will be duly reviewed and thoroughly investigated by an independent party. In light of this news, Travis will not be participating in this week’s UFC International Fight Week activities in Las Vegas.
“The prevention of domestic violence and the education of the athletes is of the utmost importance to the organization. UFC holds its athletes to the highest standard and will continue to take appropriate action if and when warranted.”
This news comes on the heels of Tuesday’s report that UFC ring girl Brittney Palmer’s husband was arrested on charges of attempted murder after he allegedly tried killing her.
