Very .


Should be a good fight. I'm going with Travis though.
I've always thought bigfoot was a tad bit overrated

Browne just got himself one hell of a step up in competition.

Hope Browne pulls off the W, but got a feeling he's going to catch a beat down

God dammit we have to wait?! lol I enjoy watching Travis Browne! I was really looking forward to seeing him and Rothwell mix it up next weekend. Ah well Big Foot will be a great challenge for him. I'd like to see Browne make a title run by the at least spring of 2013.

My first thought was Browne by KO but if he can't finish Bigfoot early he may be in trouble since it's a 5 round fight and his cardio is... not the best. I think Silva could win a decision here or Browne gets the finish.

Hopefully nobody gets injured again, leading up to the fight. If there are other solid fights, I may have to get tickets.

i think i'll take browne by UD. i think hes more athletic than silva and will be able to use his reach to stay out of silvas range and stay in his own range.

Sparky, while it is a step up for Browne.....I'm MORE surprised that they're bringing Browne up this slowly. The guy impresses the hell outa me and has pretty much easily handled anyone put in front of him.....I think taking Bigfoot is a babystep up in competition. I'd love to see Browne against a top 8 opponent. Nog, Carwin, Nelson, Mir, bring Cormier over.....I wouldn't guarantee a win for Browne in any of these fights, but i like his chances in all of them.

Time for a step up in competition for Browne, a real one.
