UFC heavyweight Travis Browne is free to return to competition after an investigation into an alleged domestic violence incident came back with “inconclusive evidence.”

Browne (17-3-1 MMA, 8-3-1 UFC) was temporarily suspended by the organization in early July after his wife, fitness model Jenna Renee Webb, posted multiple photos of her bruised body on Instagram and accused Browne of assaulting her.

Although Webb did not press charges, UFC’s officials announced the promotion hired “a former FBI agent with more than 25 years of experience” to investigate the situation.

I personally don't think he did anything to her. I think they would have had a scuffle or something and he may have restrained her or pushed her off. I remember seeing the photos and the bruises she had looked days old. It wouldn't make sense to me to not take photos when the injuries were fresh.

I love how the ufc boasts about the credentials of the investigator lol. Who knows though. I know I've had the urge to just slap one of my exes when she just keeps relentlessly pushing those buttons. Never would or could though.

It's like bill burr says... There is no "reason" to hit a woman.... Right ?!

Touchy situation during a time Pro Sport organizations are making a stand agains players abusing women. I don't know if Browne was arrested or not. In my opinion, unless a arrest is made and there is a criminal investigation the UFC, NFL, MLB, and whoever else should probably just save there money and not try to make something out of nothing. Most domestic disputes turn into he said, she said, when the cops show up anyways.

There's definitely more to this story that we don't know about. I believe this all stemmed from Jenna finding out about Travis and Ronda which was kept hush hush for some time. She probably went crazy on him which would happen 9/10 when a girl finds about infidelity. I believe he retaliated out of self defense and might have gone a little overboard. But IDK if any of you follow his instagram but read his hashtags, there were some clues there. And this was 2 months ago and jenna is still on twitter/instagram bashing Ronda and Travis. One more thing, why didn't she report him to the authorities? She posted these pics online.

This pleases me primarily because there didn't seem to be any hard evidence. I hope he didn't lay hands but without solid proof, firing him would be a reckless knee jerk reaction which we see too often these days...typically due to angry ranters on twatter.

He is white and now with Ronda (the poster Girl of the UFC) of course he is innocent!

I just doubt his race has anything to do with his likelihood of guilt vs innocence. I think people who contact media prior to police and then change their stories are likely lying, but that is just something I learned from the head crime scene investigator of the state of Arizona.

This makes absolute sense to me.

I'm not saying that we should presume women are lying when they charge famous athletes with rape/abuse. That would be really dumb.

But we also should not presume that the athletes are lying. That would be equally dumb.

Two important things to remember:

1. Athletes tend to be high testosterone males who have learned that violence can be a good solution to problems (particularly combat athletes.)
2. People (mostly women) in those athletes lives have a monetary incentive to lie about abuse. The more the stories come up in the news, the more likely you are to see fake stories.

I think the UFC's actions here were perfect. Do a fact-based investigation with the presumption of innocence (I could take or leave the suspension while they do the investigation because that seems like presuming guilt). If no wrongdoing can be proven, take no further action. If a court of law later finds them guilty, take action at that time.

There's no use in any of us speculating about Browne's guilt or innocence. We don't have anywhere near enough information to make a determination.
