It wasn’t the best showing for UFC heavyweight Travis Browne on Saturday night.
Browne, fiancee to former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, was up against Alexey Oleynyk in a heavyweight fight on the UFC 213 prelim show, and Browne suffered the eighth loss of his professional career when he was choked out in the second round.
Browne (18-8-1) was taken down by Oleynyk and it eventually spelled disaster, as Oleynyk was able to improvise a submission hold in order to get the tap out.
Browne has now lost four consecutive fights.
Oleynik (53-10-1) was the 15th ranked heavyweight contender going into the fight, but this win should help him move up a bit in the rankings.
