Browne spoke with the media for a UFC 200 media launch and things got heavy as the 6-foot-7 heavyweight got emotional holding back tears just talking about the thought of a man beating their wife with children present.
Browne expressed that he was hurt by the media that were quick to blow up stories about the allegations, but were rather quiet after no charges were made and he was reinstated by the UFC after a private investigation took place.
“Why do I have to do all the talking?” Browne said. “All these places — TMZ and that stuff — ran stuff and not a single person asked questions (transcribed by MMA Fighting). I’m a 6-foot-7, 250-pound man. I have two little boys at home and if I did the things I was accused of, you want those two boys being raised by me? Why wouldn’t you want them out of my home? Why would you want me to have my career if that’s the kind of man that I am?
“Honestly, I feel a little betrayed,” Browne said emotionally. “If those are your reasons for lying, but then you don’t press charges, you don’t try to do things the right way.
“If any of you guys were here beating your wife and you have two kids, I swear to God, I will f*ck you up. And I would pray to God and would take your kids and take them from you.”
The spotlight can be tough where often times people are too quick to react to a headline. Browne stamps his mark on where he stands on domestic violence and wants to make sure everyone knows.
Travis Browne is scheduled to fight former UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez at UFC 200 on July 9 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
