Another heavyweight clash has been added to the final pay-per-view card of the year when “The Warmaster” Josh Barnett clashes with Travis “Hapa” Browne.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal revealed the news earlier today.
Josh Barnett vs Travis Browne added to UFC 168
“The Warmaster” Josh Barnett (33-6) was, for the longest time, the best heavyweight fighter not in the UFC. That is no longer the case, as he made his return to the big show with a resounding TKO victory over long-time Top 5 fighter Frank Mir. The catch wrestling specialist is one of the most experienced competitors in the 265 lbs. division, and believes he is capable of making one last title run. Will the resurgent Barnett be able to to take the next step towards his championship dreams with a win over “Hapa”?
Travis “Hapa” Browne (15-1-1) is one of the latest young heavyweight to make splash in the UFC. With finishes in all but one of his UFC victories, the Jackson’s MMA Product has only suffered defeat due to a leg injury sustained within the fight, and has yet to be stopped otherwise. Will Browne be able to make it two wins in a row and put himself that much closer to a title shot by defeating Barnett?
UFC 168 goes down on December 28th at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV. The main event is scheduled to be a rematch for the UFC Middleweight Title as new champion Chris Weidman takes on the man he dethroned, Anderson “The Spider” Silva.
