    Meh, not a huge fan of this fight honestly.. Thought they'd give Brown a much bigger, better named fighter. Barnett or hell, I would have enjoyed Browne/Rothwell even more than this since Rothwell begged for that fight after his last win over Vera.


    Stipe is a great fighter but not named enough yet to fight Browne..Stipe is one tough SOB though and hits hard to Brown better be careful this is a risky fight for him.. Brown will decision him.

    I like this fight. Both guys are constantly improving and trying to work their way up, I think it will be competitive. Browne probably earned a step up, but i think it is good to build him back slowly.

    I like this fight a lot. They need to start building up new guys. But I was expecting a step up for Travis.

    Nice fight.
    Browne is favorite but Miocic can give the upset. He has some serious hands and unless Overeem, he has a decent chin and will not be cocky.

    Lame. Browne has deserved a step up. Barnett would have been good but maybe Barnett could fight Werdum now?

    Pretty sweet match up. I think both of these guys could use a little more seasoning before facing the elite-tier HW.

    I could make a case for either guy. Stipe's recent performance against Big Country showed us he has the accuracy and ambition to make Travis pay if he gets off to a slow start like he usually does. I know that Reem hits hard, but he went berserk and didn't really pick his shots. Stipe looks to be well coached and probably wouldn't make that mistake.

    Travis showed that he's a tough SOB, and if he can catch a beating from Reem and still finish the fight, then you can never count him out. Stipe struggled against taller competition (Struve) and so maybe Travis' height and reach would pose a problem.

    On the ground, Stipe looks to be the more athletic fighter, and has a wrestling pedigree. Maybe the ground game gives Stipe an option if he gets in trouble with the stand up.

    Barnett would have definately been an interesting fight.. I bet the UFC wants to build up both guys a bit more and create more hype while the JDS Cain triology plays out. Hard to say what happens til that fight is done due to Cormier.

    Hmm. I think this is a step back for Browne, although I really do like Stipe.
    I don't see this ending well for Miocic.
