Alistair Overeem-Travis Browne booked for UFC on FOX Sports 1

Alistair Overeem-Travis Browne booked for UFC on FOX Sports 1

The UFC promised an impressive lineup to help launch FOX Sports 1 on August 17 and has thus far delivered with a few potential-laden pairings almost certain to entertain. The card got a bit bigger this week, both in terms of additional action and the size of the involved competitors, with the booking of a bout featuring Top 10 heavyweights in the form of Alistair Overeem-Travis Browne. Both men are over 6’4” and have reputations for ending opponents’ evenings before scorecards come into play.

UFC officials have confirmed the fight on the company’s website. Other match-ups set for UFC on FS 1 include Joe Lauzon-Michael Johnson and Thiago Alves-Matt Brown.

The 36-12 Overeem lost out on a title-shot in February when he suffered an upset loss to Antonio Silva. Prior to the defeat he’d won eleven consecutive clashes including success against Brock Lesnar, Mark Hunt, and Fabricio Werdum. All but two of his wins have featured some form of finish with a near-even split between submissions/TKOs.

Browne is 14-1-1 in his career with ten knockouts notched on his record. He was last seen stopping Gabriel Gonzaga with strikes a little more than a minute into their April outing.

    Off Topic: Has anyone else been getting occasional error messages since the new layout change? It’s nothing to big it just goes to a white page with a box in the middle that says Error! Code: 503, but usually refreshing the page fixes it, sometimes I have to refresh multiple times.

    It’s not often, just occasionally when I load up 5oz from a blank tab. Just thought I’d bring it up in case it was the precursor to something worse for IT.

    I get that I need to upgrade Firefox when I open 5oz from a blank page. Maybe you just need to update your browser.
