Possibly ribs per Dana...

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2035467-travis-browne-injury-updates-on-ufc-stars-hand-rib-and-return


"There wasn't a whole lot that went right for heavyweight Travis Browne at UFC on Fox 11.

Not only did the contender lose a unanimous decision to Fabricio Werdum, but he could potentially have two injuries to overcome, according to UFC:

Dana: Travis May have suffered a broken rib in first. Definitely broken hand.

— UFC (@ufc) April 20, 2014
Although it's unclear when the injury took place during the fight, it could be an explanation for a poor performance from the 6'7" 31-year-old.

Coming off of a three-fight win streak that included knockout wins over Gabriel Gonzaga, Alistair Overeem and Josh Barnett, Browne was just one win away from claiming a title shot against Cain Velasquez.

Unfortunately for him, a very game Fabricio Werdum turned out to be the one ready to capitalize on the No. 1 contender bout and effectively battered Browne for five rounds. The unanimous decision loss will now not only send Browne back to the drawing board, but also on the road to rehab.

At the rate that Velasquez has been going through challengers, Browne will want to recover quickly. It shouldn't take him very long to get back to the top of the line with a win in his return."

Is this confirmed?
Was it the Knee in the clinch at the 1st round that broke the ribs?

Going to have to agree with this. Great fight for Werdum, he looked great. Cains cardio is the difference maker against all these guys. JDS still beats everyone not named Cain. Phone Post 3.0
Yes and yes on both posts. Phone Post 3.0

Surprised Werdum didn't break his hand with how many times he blasted Travis.. That being said I hope Browne recovers quick as he is still a monster in the division that will one day fight for a title.

Indeed! Travis is still a a young gun in MMA. Once he learn to base himself and not to throw just 100% KO bombs he will be the force to reckon. One thing I'm sort of "worried" about is that he's been gettin tagged quite heavily lately (Overeem gave him a hell before he got KO, now Werdum). He can't take that sort of punishement every time. But he will be back, no doubt.

I always believed Browne was overrated but was starting to believe I was wrong. The technique he showed tonight was an embarrassment to mma. He telegraphed everything. I was shocked at how bad he looked. Phone Post 3.0

i agree, browne looked very bad tonight. werdum just purely dominated that fight. that rib break appeared to take a huge toll on brown, sacrificing technique and everything. hope he bounces back strong. as for werdum, despite looking really impressive i don't see that style of fighting doing much for cain

Cain is just on another level. I don't think there will be a heavyweight challenging him anytime soon. Phone Post 3.0

Im not going to lie I bought into the browne hype. My better judgement told me not to after the bigfoot fight but I did anyway.

Heres what I take away from this.

Overeem isnt that good. As much as we want to beleieve he is.....hes just not.

Browne did have a good win against barnett but i think the punch or poke in the eye really messed up barnett and he wins that fight 8/10 times.

Again, I bought into the browne hype personally because of the way he took out barnett butvif u factor in the eye poke with the illegal elbows to the head, browne isnt that good Phone Post 3.0
