'Bigfoot' Silva KOs Travis Browne in the 1st round

by Mike Chiappetta | source: mmafighting.com

Faced with the possibility that he could be cut with a third straight loss, Silva was in must-win mode heading into his UFC on FX 5 main event with Travis Browne, and he performed like it.

Silva ended his short losing streak with the help of a crushing right hand, as he floored Browne against the fence and then finished with a series of ground strikes en route to a first-round technical knockout.

The official time was 3:27.

LOL @ stonepony's "he was outclassing Silva" comment, especially the "first wheel kick was beautiful."  Uh, it didn't land and was a stupid thing to do as that might have been the kick that messed up his knee (it was later said it was a kick in the first minute that did it).

Ah. Silva was doing nothing because he was waiting for Browne's knee to go out. Makes sense.

^i agree with this....i don't understand how anyone could think Browne looked good out there. he was throwing wild, goofy stuff, and Silva was just waiting him out.

So you mean to tell me because Browne threw a failed wheel kick and some overhand rights, which were blocked, this is outclassing? Only think he was able to do was some kicks to the knee and a crappy Dominick Cruz impersonation. He would've got taken down too if he didn't drape his arm over the cage.

Ah, well you sure make a good argument there doofus. You convinced me with all your witty insight and logic.*derp* oh yeah... well... you gots thumb downs! *derp*Good one. I guess Silva was winning and the knee going out had nothing to do with it. ESPN should hire you and put your analytical skills to good use.

Ok I see now that your -47 holds up with that answer. Thanks for confirming.

Please explain how he wasn't.Did we watch the same fight? Browne was doing whatever he wanted with impunity, while Silva was completely on the defensive with no answers. Until Browne's knee went out.That first wheel-kick was beautiful. How many fighters his size have you seen throw it with that kind of technique and ease?It's obvious that the fight was completely going in the other direction, and shifted when his knee went out.

He was the favorite because he's clearly the better fighter. More skills, more talent, and more athleticism. He was outclassing Silva, as expected, before his knee went out. It was an easy fight for him, until he was forced to work off one leg.
