Travis Browne Loses His Fourth Fight In A Row After A Wild Brawl Against Oleksiy Oliynyk

Despite Travis Browne losing six out of his last eight fights, he’s still one of the most dangerous men in the heavyweight division. At least in the first three to five minutes. At UFC 213, he had the 40-year-old, 60-plus fight veteran Oleksiy Oliynyk reeling, but Oliynyk was able to grind down Browne into what very well could be a place where he needs to think about retirement.

Let’s take a look at the highlights. Browne came out strong, knocking down the brilliant Russian grappler, but then Oliynyk was able to close the distance, tie up Browne and work the body which slowed down Ronda Rousey’s fiancé to a near crawl.

Browne was able to time a few beautiful knees into the chest of the Russian as he moved in, but as soon as Oliynyk was able to start threatening takedowns, Browne brought his hands down, which left his chin wide open. Oliynyk isn’t known for his stand up, but he blasted Browne’s chin to end the first round, and you could tell Browne, who has taken a ton of damage over the last few years, wasn’t the same.

At this point, you have to wonder if Browne should keep on fighting. He’s been stopped four times in the last three years, and his decision to losses to Fabricio Werdum was basically him acting as a tall, bearded punching bag. Even his wins were slobber knockers.
