Late last year, Travis Browne was undefeated and found himself amongst the best in the heavyweight division. A knee injury early against Antonio “Big Foot” Silva ended the perfect 13 fight win streak abruptly. Silva was able to secure the TKO victory in the first round of UFC on FX in October.
Now that Browne has tasted defeat, he sees that it serves little purpose to a fighter.
“It really does not matter,” said Browne on MMA Junkie Radio. “When you get high up in this sport and you’ve learned to accept where you’re at and what can happen, and accept the sport for what it is, I don’t think that’s something that should bother you.”
Gabriel Gonzaga will look to hand Browne another loss as he goes for his third consecutive UFC win. He submitted the other two fighters.
Browne vs. Gonzaga is on the main card of The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale. That’s on Saturday, April 13, from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, NV.
