Travis “Hapa” Browne has quickly become synonymous with devastating, fight-ending elbows to the head. Some question the legality of some of the elbows, saying they clipped the back of the head of his opponents.

Browne recently explained, however, his understanding of where he can and where he can’t land the elbows in a legal fashion.

So click on the video to attend this Free MMA 101 class with elbow-master extraordinaire Travis “Hapa” Browne.

    …and, it’s OK to hit an unconscious opponent with an elbow to the back of the head?? WTF? On a similar note, one could argue, “Jones’ disqualifying elbows on Matt Hammil were not 12 to 6, they were 1 to 7, or, 11 to 5…” Browne would feel different if he took a few shots just above his stupid paper template. It really won’t matter much when Velasquez beats in the front of his face.

      He never said that. Don’t be ridiculous.

    Clearly the issues is with the rules than. The upper part of the back of head should be protected as well. Don’t hate the playa, hate the game. I thought the elbows to Gonzaga was less controversial than the elbows to Josh Barnett.
