Travis Browne is coming off a TKO win over Matt Mitrione earlier this year, and is looking to get back in the Octagon sooner rather than later.
On the other hand, Roy Nelson is coming off a unanimous decision win over Jared Rosholt earlier this month. The win snapped Nelson’s 3-fight skid that had seen him lose to Mark Hunt, Alistair Overeem, and Josh Barnett.
Browne’s manager John Fosco spoke to MMAJunkie to discuss why his client wants to fight Roy Nelson next:
“He had a birthday party for his son the other night, and he hit me up, and he’s like, ‘We pulled out the Nintendo, and it was old school, and all I could think about while I was playing ‘Mike Tyson’s Punchout’ was how many times I would have to kick Roy Nelson in his fat stomach for his pants to fall down like Bald Bull.’ There’s no fight right now, but I think Travis could make Roy’s pants fall down and make him fall down if they fought, too. He could get in there in May.”
A bit harsh…but would you like to see Travis Browne and Roy Nelson fight in the Octagon any time soon?
