Travis Browne won three fights in a row, all by first round knockout, until he lost a decision to #1 contender Fabricio Werdum in April. Browne said he has not been back to Jackson's MMA since the loss, and has instead been training with Edmund Tarverdyan at Glendale Fight Club.

At a UFC 177 media event, Browne was asked what he learned from the loss.

"Honestly, I learned that, as a fighter, I know how to go out there and mess somebody up," a hesitant Browne began. "Like I just know how to get out there, and F stuff up. But I don't know how to fight. And that's one of the things that I'm learning right now.

"As a fighter, you don't want to admit that. But at the same time, I'm not looking to sit here comfortably in the #3 spot or #4 spot. I'm going for the championship. So every time I have a fight, I have to go back and dissect everything."

"I went through all the emotions after a loss. Freakin blaming everyone else. Blaming it on me... crying in the fetal position at night. You just go through all that kind of stuff. In that time, I tore my game apart, and asked my self how I would beat me.

"Now that's what we're working on. I'm learning how to fight."

Browne was then asked about Greg Jackson's camp.

"I haven't trained there since my fight," said Browne. "I've been hitting mitts actually with Edmund up in Glendale, and I haven't been back to Albuquerque to train... So that's where I've been hitting mitts and working out a lot. I've been going out and seeing Ricky Lundell, and working with Neal Melanson, for the grappling. Just figuring out what I need to do to further myself.

"I feel like I'm going to go back to Jackson's, to do my camps and stuff like that. But right now I'm working with Edmund. And who knows? At the end of the day, I might stay with Edmund and do a camp there. I'm just going to do what I need to do to go out there and win fights. Right now, working with Edmund, it's been an eye opener.

"I've been working the ins and outs of the fight game. Maybe a little more on the technical side... I'm going to learn how to fight and there's going to be some people in trouble."

Browne ran into the best Werdum there's ever been, and there's absolutely no shame in that. Interested to see his next fight, but sometimes fighters try to reinvent the wheel after suffering a loss. Phone Post 3.0

I wish Hapa all the best. Love watching him fight, but his performance against Werdum was painful. Hopefully he finds what he feels is missing.

I saw his Werdum fight live and it wasn't like Browne didn't know what he was doing, Werdum is just that good.

I think he's going to give Cain a run for his money. He has all the tools.

It seems like the IN thing to do lately. I swear they just want you to come in and reply as if they accomplished something. I thought the title was 100% accurate. Phone Post 3.0

I think you're both right. Thread title was spot on as well. I think there have been inconsistencies and it seems like you guys are addressing it and working on it.

Kudos. Phone Post 3.0

Seems odd, I thought he had a pretty good jab already.

Browne is a fantastic fighter! Werdum just had an answer for everything on fight night and he is one of those fighters that can agitate anyone in the division. Long reach and great kicks with perfect timing and if you do get around that and get a takedown you are totally fucked. Phone Post 3.0

This has got to either be sarcasm or you didn't type what you thought you did.

THIS. If anything, he ruins fighters by trying to change their game and make them leave their strengths for what he prefers. Ronda is successful because of her previous background, NOT because of him.
