The bout between Browne and Barnett could easily headline a different show. Luckily, since the UFC loves to end the year on a high note, UFC 168 is stacked and thus it has been relegated to status as a “featured fight”. Barnett is a widely-respected veteran who has been competing at a high level for more than a decade. He has above average striking and some of the best grappling in the division. Of course, Browne is a beast as well, standing 6’7” with knockouts of Gabriel Gonzaga and Alistair Overeem in his last two tilts. Odds are good a finish will come into play and subsequently a lot of smiles from fans tuning in to catch the clash.
The UFC will end November 2013 with a bang tonight thanks to the Ultimate Fighter 18 Finale. However, the card hardly compares to the lineups on tap for December with a particular emphasis on those for UFC on FOX 9 (12/14) and UFC 168 (12/28). The month also features the organization’s latest stop in Australia, UFC Fight Night 33 (12/6), meaning fans have yet another option to choose from when it comes to action in the coming weeks.
