Travis Browne (born Travis Kuualiialoha Browne July 17, 1982 on the Hawaiian Island of Oahu) is an America mixed martial artist who competes in the UFC’s Heavyweight division. His initial love of sports came from playing basketball, when the 6’7″ athlete won the 2000 Coastal North League Player of the Year award while attending high school in the San Diego, CA area. He didn’t discover MMA until the age of 26 after being introduced to Brazilian jiu-jitsu. He also supplemented his fighting skills through boxing and had his first professional fight less than a year later. Travis officially signed with the UFC in March 2010. He faced his biggest opponent against the legendary Antônio Silva on October 5, 2012 at the main event of UFC on FX 5, and suffered his first professional loss after pulling a hamstring during the fight, to which Antonio capitalized on. He was ranked at #5 in the UFC during 2015 with a record of 18-3-1. Travis is well known for his striking, well-rounded ground game, and his massive size.
