Overeem vs Browne
Round One: We’re winding down here for the co-main event in Boston and referee Mario Yamasaki is calling the action. Overeem comes out and pushes Browne backward with heavy strikes. Browne is down after a series of power strikes and Overeem looks like he’s going for a guillotine choke but Browne doesn’t seem too worried about it as he’s still recovering from the first barrage of punches and knees. More repetitive ground strikes from Overeem make it look like Browne is looking for the door, but it is the exact opposite of that as he makes his way to his feet! WOW! Browne keeps his distance and is only throwing awkward looking front kicks that aren’t really doing much. Overeem walks right through them, and one of those flailing front kicks lands and “The Reem” goes down! A few follow up shots seal the deal and Browne is the winner.
Result- Travis Browne by knockout (KO) @ 4:08 of round one
