Travis Browne at UFC 135Travis Browne pulled up lame early on in his UFC on FX 5 headlining bout with Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva on Friday night and it didn’t take long for the Brazilian to take advantage. Noting the instability in Browne’s lead leg, Silva pressured the Hawaiian and blasted him with a big right hand, took him to the mat and finished him off.

“I think it was like the first kick I threw, my left hamstring popped like three times,” explained Browne at the UFC on FX 5 post-fight press conference.

Those three pops turned out to be significant. Browne went to a doctor on Monday to have it examined and reported back that he tore his hamstring.

“They said I tore my hamstring, ill be out for 2-4 months,” Browne tweeted. “Luckily no surgery.”

Despite the injury, Browne made no excuses following the fight, saying that he didn’t want to take anything away from Silva’s victory.

Browne sounded rather upbeat about the injury, however, thanking his family, friends and fans for their support before declaring, “I’ll be back stronger!”

    maybe that will teach him a lesson and next time he won’t come out show boating like a clown…

    • Dancing Fool

      Yup. He must have read too many of the recent articles kissing his ass, and decided he was Anderson Silva. He looked like he was having a seizure, not fighting.

  • Captain Obvious

    • shakejunt

      right, he should rely solely on his size and strength

    I don’t know if he practice those kicks or not but it was alright. He figured he’d come out with something different and maybe catch Bigfoot off guard and land one. No big deal. I don’t think he was trying to showboat or anything. Let’s see whats next for him..

      exactly, he was just trying to push the envelope for heavyweights. people wouldn’t be flaming him if he won the fight

    As Browne was coming out, hopping around like a kangaroo, I thought to myself, this dude could tear something before the fight! – crazy that it actually happened & he gets TKO’d because of it…….

    I seen this bum of a heavyweight try to hail a cab in Denver and fail at that too. Never thought he was even a top 200 heavyweight. He should be on under cards in local fairground events. Browne looks good on the DL!
