Travis Browne wins unanimous decision against Broughton

by Matthew Roth | source:

Browne opened the round with a big overhand right that didn't connect with full power. Another big overhand right failed to connect for Browne. They clinched against the cage and Hafa worked inside knees to weaken the Brit. Browne landed several digging leg kicks to the thigh which slowed Broughton. Browne wiffed a front kick but landed a straight right. Broughton had trouble finding his range, failing to connect with anything against the more mobile fighter. An uppercut landed perfectly and backed Rob Broughton up. Hafa attempted a flying knee but it didn't connect. Browne's stand up looked extremely similar to Dominick Cruz's constant movement. He ended the round with a takedown.

The second round opened with Broughton missing a double jab and Browne failing to connect with an uppercut. A digging leg kick landed with authority for Hafa. Travis Browne went to the well one too many times with his front kick and it was caught by Rob Broughton. He stayed on his feet and came forward with a combination and then knees to the head from the Thai clinch. Broughton survived and threw some punches of his own. The leg kicks constantly landed perfectly and always turned Broughton's leg inward. Browne got the fight to the ground and started working big punches from Broughton's back. The round ended with Browne again as the aggressor.

Presumably Broughton was there to make Browne look good. Might have been better just to dress him in a glow in the dark bikini and made him do cartwheels.

This, there are so few big athletic guys that can fight worth a damn. Let the HW's prove themselves on the undercard and only let the very best fight on the main card. That was frankly embarrassing to watch.

Was just thinking this, after they booed the shit out of Assuncao/Yagin, I'm surprised there's not more booing here.Call me a snob, but other than title fights/eliminators, and top ten guys, I don't ever want to see heavyweights on the main card.
