    Exactly.
    What's interesting is how common it is for a fighter without the mental durability to turn to PEDs to augment their physicality in an effort to cover. You can almost time the meltdown.

    Travis Browne: I think when I started throwing that combo with the overhand left hook and uppercut to back him off, when he grabbed me, at that point it felt different. It felt like he grabbed me because he was scared of what I was gonna do. It wasn't like he was going to grab me because he was going to do something with me if that makes sense. He didn't grab me to take me down or to throw more knees. He grabbed me to stop me from what I was doing at the time. At that point, I knew that I had him on the ropes and now it was my turn to come back and put the pressure on him. I started throwing a few things, kept him guessing and then got the knockout.
    This is essentially going to be a blueprint for anyone who fights him in the future and makes it past those first 200 seconds. You're going to have heavyweights memorizing this, internalizing it, looking for those tells in AO's game.

    Reading that last interview, it almost sounds like the fight was closer or more in his favor before the ko lol

    Not sure were I stand on just voiceing your alright in the turdle position. Yes he had his arms and hands blocking most just as a standing fighter does except he wasn't looking towards were they were coming from. I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy seeing AO get KO'd, but he earned the loss Also wouldn't of been mad or shocked if the fight would of been stopped earlier.

    I think the most likely matchups for Browne are either Big Nog or Miocic. I think Miocic is the likely course of action, unless they want to give him Big Nog to potentially build his name even more before being in a title eliminator.

    I don't see Werdum wanting to take a non-title fight, and I can't really blame him too much.

    There's a slight chance they match him up against either Bigfoot or Hunt, but they're both coming off of losses and the first Bigfoot fight wasn't that long ago.

    Maybe he gets tabbed as an injury replacement for Barnett/Mir or Cormier/Nelson. I think Miocic is my pick for Browne's next fight though.
