Browne vs. 'Big Foot' Silva to headline UFC on FX 5


Heavyweights Travis Browne and Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva will headline the Ultimate Fighting Championship's return to Minnesota in October.

USA TODAY Sports on Thursday learned from UFC officials that Browne will fight Silva on Oct. 5 in the main event of UFC on FX 5, which will take place at the Target Center in Minneapolis.

Browne (13-0-1 overall, 4-0-1 UFC) was forced Wednesday off the FOX-broadcast main card of next week's UFC on FOX 4: Shogun vs. Vera event. But officials have lessened the blow by rewarding the 6-7 heavyweight with his first headlining role.

I think Travis takes this decisively. I also think he will fight for the title one day, but I don't think he matches up well with JDS or AO. Maybe with a great game plan.

I'm not saying they aren't the same person, but following someone around a forum calling them fat makes you look like trash. The truest example of Internet tough guy.

Browne's gonna fight for the title someday. I think he'll knock out Big Foot.

I don't know what is wrong with Bigfoot, he doesn't seem to handle adversity very well, similar to Brock Lesnar, if he can't be the bully in the fight, he seems to fold mentally. There is some type of roadblock that he needs to get over to truly become an elite HW.

This is a Strikeforce main event. Last time UFC came to MN it was PPV and they got GSP, Lesnar and the debut of Jon Jones. Here they are coming back and it's FX and they get Travis Browne and Bigfoot?Yeah. This sport is getting bigger by the minute. Every card has a major main event. Stars aplenty. Right.

first punch Cain landed Silva was done same with when he fought Cormier.When he fought Cormier it looked like he was never hit in the face before

Easy fight for Silva, unless that tumor pops from a whistling right (I know it's already done.)
