2014 is when Travis Browne’s career hit the pause button after his loss to Fabricio Werdum in a top contender bout and Browne has not been able to find the resume button since, despite his efforts and time with Edmond Tarverdyan. However, statistically speaking, one could argue that Browne has only lost to fighters who were ex heavy weight champions and that is a fair, valid point.
However, that stat could soon be a thing of the past if Browne does not emerge victorious against Derrick Lewis. Lewis Might not be a former heavy weight champion, but he certainly can put up an impressive fight. It has to be conceded that Lewis’ career did not really start of as smoothly as he would have hoped (two brutal knock outs in his first four fights) but things have looked up since then.
UFC 192 is where Lewis took charge and since consecutively won five fights while fighting worthy opponents each time. Lewis’ forte are his agile hands and sheer strength and he will be hungry to come away with a victory against Browne which will really be the icing on the cake for his winning run so far.
Browne, in his own regard, has a long reach and his strikes generate a tremendous amount of force. He does have a few tricks up his sleeve especially when dealing with not so technically sound opponents such as Lewis.Author : Rory McGregor
