Travis Browne wasted no time in making a push for his next match, saying he was interested in meeting Ben Rothwell at The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale in April. Rothwell was defeated by Gabriel Gonzaga Saturday night at UFC on FX: Belfort vs. Bisping.
“Looks like me and (Rothwell) may have a date in the fuure,” Browne posted. “What do the fans think?? April 13th for the TUF Finale??”
Browne was defeated in late 2012 by Antonio Silva, suffering a hamstring injury in the loss. The 30-year-old was dealt his first career loss, falling to 13-1-1 in his career.
Rothwell (32-9) was looking to build on a recent win over Brendan Schaub, but was unable to avoid Gonzaga’s submission game in Brazil.
