En route to facing Antonio Silva in the main event of UFC on FX 5 this past October, Travis Browne was chosen as the feature piece in a Vice documentary series about MMA.
Fightland follows UFC heavyweight Travis Browne as he prepares for his fight against Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva in Minneapolis — from the weigh-ins to the warm-ups to the tense walk to the Octagon. Then, we stick around to see what it’s like after the most important fight of your career.
“Hapa” would see his unblemished career as a fighter meet its first setback on the night of October 5, 2012. The Jackson’s MMA product suffered a partially torn hamstring early in the bout, which severely hindered his ability to move. That lack of mobility would be his demise as it opened him up to a massive right hand form the Brazilian, who would notch a TKO victory at 3:27 of the opening frame.
