Browne vs. Broughton Wiki Update Wiki

The seventh bout of UFC 135 featured heavyweights colliding as Travis "Hapa" Browne took on Rob "The Bear" Broughton. Browne entered the fight at 2-0-1 in the UFC and 11-0-1 overall. Broughton came into the bout at 1-0 in the UFC and 15-5-1 overall.

Browne landed a strong low kick to begin the fight, then swung heavily but missed with his right hand. The pair clinched up and then broke free with Browne throwing power strikes but not able to land a home run. Broughton connected on a low kick yet was a step behind most of the time. Browne made his way to full mount late in the round but was unable to mount enough offense to put Broughton at serious risk.

Browne landed a vicious low kick in the second round, a punch to the body, and then another low kick. Broughton caught a front kick though was unable to capitalize with a takedown. The pace of the fight slowed as both fighters began to show signs of fatigue. Another low kick from Browne, but it was mostly single power punches and kicks that were being sporadically thrown. Browne grabbed a single leg and secured a takedown with little resistance. Moving directly to full mount, Browne threw a few strikes and then delivered some hammerfists as the round ended.

Browne controlled the third round, smothering Broughton on the ground but lacking the energy and perhaps experience to take advantage of his superior position. Broughton gave Browne a scare late in the round with a kimura from the bottom until Browne escaped and closed out the slow-paced and mildly disappointing fight.
