UFC 135 Fight Card Breakdown: Travis Browne Vs. Rob Broughton

A complete breakdown of every aspect of the UFC 135 heavyweight bout between Travis Browne and Rob Broughton.

Heavyweights Travis Browne (11-0-1, 2-0-1 UFC) and Rob Broughton (15-5-1, 1-0 UFC) somehow found their way onto the main card of UFC 135. Browne is coming off a dramatic first round superman punch win over Stefan Struve at UFC 130 and Broughton is finally getting his second UFC fight after beating Vinicius Queiroz at UFC 120 in October 2010.

The 6'7" Browne will have a significant reach advantage and should be the quicker fights. Broughton may have the better grappling game, but no one will mistake him for Roger Gracie

Look for Browne to batter Broughton standing and finish him on the ground.
