Ah I see, thanks. Yes if I was to think of flashy kicks browne would probably be near the bottom of the list...maybe a few ranks above big country.



It was stuff like this (impressive for a heavyweight):





What happened in his fight is probably why guys weighting over 220 dont typically do that. Impressive acrobatic ability but none of it came close to landing either.

His high front kicks always impressed me.

Seriously though, BIGFOOT STOP HURTING MY FAVORITE HW'S. First you Break Cain's and DC's Hand's now you shred Hapa's knee/leg! I would be afraid to get in the Octagon with Bigfoot, seem's he IS THE UFC INJURY BUG. lol

It was a shame to see Bigfoot win the way he did, but I think he would of won either way, knee injury or not. Lets hope these two have their passes cross down the road, and we can see a rematch.

I don't think Browne's knee can be used as an excuse for the loss. It happened DURING the fight and not BEFORE.

I said the same thing when Faber made all those excuses about his broken hands. Maybe you should learn how to punch then?

Didn't even know about that discussion, but spoilers are a reasonable concern. I'll keep my titles neutral from here on.




It's called News, not Olds.

Stay out of here if you haven't seen it. Pretty simple really.

Doesnt mean its not an excuse. Bigfoot did nothing to hurt that knee and it was obviously the injury that took Browne out of the fight. It's also valid when somone breaks a fist but its a little different imo than a knee or shin.

I think it's a reason but not an excuse. Obviously it's the reason that he lost the fight. It was also sort of a freak accident. But there's at least a decent chance that its his own fault for the kinds of techniques he was throwing.

I'm a fan of Browne and I hope he gets better. All I'm saying is that he lost fair and square.

If you think Cote lost fair and square against Anderson then I would agree with your definition of fair and square.

I think Bigfoot would have eventually iced him if his legs were 100%.

I agree ^

I think Big Foot just looked a lot better, i have never really found Browne to be that technically sound with his stance, and strikes. He looked terrible, yeah... it could have been his bad knee, but he looked god awful with his movement, and his defense.

I picked him to win, but as soon as that bell rang i immediately regretted it.
