Travis Browne can’t wait to get back into the Octagon. After a disappointing loss due to injury versus Antonio Silva, ‘Hapa’ wants to show the fighting world that his last bout was a fluke.
In an interview with ProMMANow.com, Browne stated, “coming off this loss I really have something to prove, not to everybody else but to myself, knowing that that’s a fluke and that my train has been derailed only because my body gave out.”
Browne will be fighting UFC® veteran Gabriel Gonzaga. After a yearlong break, Gonzaga returned to the Octagon in 2012 with a first-round submission of Ednaldo Oliveira at UFC 142. Most recently, the onetime heavyweight title challenger tapped Ben Rothwell with a memorable guillotine choke in the second round of their UFC on FX 7 bout. Browne on the other hand went unbeaten in his first five UFC® appearances before suffering the TKO defeat to Silva at UFC on FX 5.
“I’m feeling as strong and ready as ever,” said Browne in a Tweet to @SafeAuto. The state minimum auto insurance company is excited to support Browne with logo representation on his entrance hat and fighting trunks as he looks to get back to his winning ways.
