Josh Barnett vs. Travis Browne added to UFC 168 on Dec 28


Adam Hill of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reveals that the traditional year end UFC, which is always massive, just added about 500 pounds - hevsyweight contenders Travis Browne and Josh Barnett will be fighting at UFC 168 on Dec. 28.

Browne has recorded two consecutive first-round knockout victories since his only career loss to Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva, including a dramatic stoppage of Alistair Overeem in August. Barnett, who was stripped of the UFC heavyweight title and left the organization after a positive steriod test in 2002, finally returned after 11 years in August with a first-round knockout of Frank Mir.

The card, expected to be one of the biggest in the organization’s history, also includes the rematches between Anderson Silva and middleweight champion Chris Weidman as well as women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate.

Who ever wins is knocking on the door right behind Werdum....Oddly enough I think both guys could beat Werdum...Barnett by wrasslin and grappling....More often then not imo

Your technical analysis was a very articulate way of saying what I was unable to.

I'm surprised so many think that Josh will dominate, I hope he does but I think that Travis is going to tko Barnett in the third round, I think Travis has good enough tdd and sub defense where he doesn't get subbed in the first two rounds then I think the old Barnett is going to slow down in the third and Travis puts him away. Don't get me wrong, I do not like Browne and I like Barnett but I don't think it's going to be good for Barnett but I hope I'm wrong
