The two heavyweights duked it out for the first half of the round, making near-knockout moments for the first 150 seconds. It wasn’t until Browne landed a counter uppercut when the fight’s momentum quickly shifted.
After securing Schaub’s back, Browne continued the offensive onslaught with strikes from behind before earning the TKO with the referee’s stoppage.
With the win, Browne rebounds from his recent loss to Fabricio Werdum and has now won three of his last four outings.
