Travis Browne has been training with Ronda's coach for 2 years or so, it's the reason why he has lost so many fights after he left Jackson's MMA.

Travis and Ronda have been dating for awhile, which is the reason why he moved to California and joined Ronda's team.

At one point, their coach was on an 0-13 losing streak with all of his UFC fighters. It might be a higher number now.

0-13 should be enough of a sample in this business to know you are doing something wrong...

Browne moved to another gym a couple of months ago, he isnt with Tarverdyan anymore.

Browne came out and said he's still with Tarverdyan. Just something about camp logistics this time around. Who knows if there's more to it. Who should actually care though. Unless Browne actually moved back to Jacksons, where he was actually a relatively dynamic striker for the HW division, highly likely the plodding version that still can have power of the last 3-4 times we've seen him is what's comin

Small random thing but I liked how Tarverdyan spent most of his air time on two embedded's elaborating/patting himself on the back on how he has his fighters do swimming exercises so at least have some cardio is easier on the joints. In a way that made it seem like only he knew and that there aren't in fact actually masses of athletes doing all forms of pool training or millions of other older people doing daily swimming exercise...because it's easiest on the joints. Guy wasn't even tracking what Browne was doing in the pool either. Champ coach material

I was on the side that felt badly for Ronda's downfall. But an effect of that came out of that is that now everyone knows Edmund is useless which is deserving. At least he's doin this thing with Travis this time and not Ronda.

As for the fights, looks like a pretty barren card with a couple potentially good ones. Main event should be fun but Theodorou could make his fight boring,hendricks could get rolled by lombard which I guess could give like 20 seconds of entertainment. Who knows what Sicilia has at this point. Esparza and Mann are meh unless they pop the rare entertaining finishes in their fights. I guess the Ponzinibio vs Taleb fight is the sleeper

Gonna go

Lewis > Browne
Lombard > Hendricks
Esparza > Mazany

Probably Ponz as well

Really awful main card match-up wise, some snooze-material to follow-up 208 seems to be OTW..... I do like a couple of the early prelims, Janes vs Maerschart, Marshman vs Santos, and Ricci vs Felder should be fun to watch with Maerchart and Marshman being the 2 guys with the highest ceilings.

Last event I didn't post, but I lost, first losing event in a long time unless I'm blanking.


Lewis > Browne - Can't be confident but I don't see why the chin and cardio edges (yes, his cardio is actually pretty decent for his size) wouldn't be enough to finish Browne who is worthless after a couple of big exchanges.

Hendricks > Lombard - Hendricks that fought Gastellum in retrospect doesn't seem too bad considering what Kelvin just did to Kennedy. Also thought he passed the eye test in that fight. The Magney fight I thought he won, but he didn't pass the eye test in that one (looked like shit)..... meanwhile Lombard's awful cardio and slow pace actually seem to play really nicely for Hendricks who folds to pace and pressure. Lombard's chin also seems to be shot looking back to the Hendo KO - he was getting rocked easy in that fight. Everyone seems to be on Lombard here, so it makes sense that the line moved with it opening at a pickem.

Sicilia > Tucker - Tucker guy looked awful on tape. Last random new guy I watched with so little tape was Nico Price, and he made me look stupid, so well see.

Theodoro > Ferreria - Such a stereotypical "Fighter A needs an early KO or Fighter B has it" scenario

McMann > Mazany

Ponz > Taleb - Taleb is a good all-around fighter, but not very good at any single thing. Perfect fighter to make Ponz look very good while still being competitive and fun.

Esparza > Markos - Both of these fighters stocks are far lower than they were when that season of TUF ended, but particularly Markos who never got better at anything and was supposed to be green coming off the show.

Zahabi vs Vieira - Dunno

Santos > Marshman - I like Marshman a lot and think he could crack the top 15 at some point possibly, but this is a great stylistic matchup for Santos who should be at a huge advantage at distance via kicks and footwork. In order to win, Marshman will need to be willing and able to pressure and eat some early shots.

Felder > Ricci - Felder via close decision seems like an inevitability. Ricci seems like a shittier version of Felder to me.

Maerschardt > Janes - Both guys super durable and good on the ground but only 1 of them is a fluid striker + Maerschardt is far more experienced in general.

Volkanovski vs Quinones - Dunno

Down to 11 fights now.

Travis was known for being athletic and durable. He used to bounce around and move a lot and throw unorthodox strikes that would catch people off guard.

Ever since he moved to Ronda's camp to be closer to her, he stopped moving and bouncing around the cage a lot. Now, he plants his feet and crouches over more to use his length + jab that he learned from Ronda's coach, who is a pure boxing coach, not an MMA coach.

If Travis didn't lose his movement + bouncing style, I would pick him to beat Lewis. Without his movement, it'll be hard for him to stop Lewis from closing the distance. Lewis sucks at technical striking, but he doesn't need to be technical if Travis isn't moving around the cage.

The big thing people are looking at is Lewis' last fight against Shamil. It was a 5-round fight and Lewis had a hard time stopping the take down and only won once Shamil gassed out in Round 4 or something. Shamil is kind of a technical boxer, but with no power, and he's from Dagestan, home of the best wrestlers. Travis isn't as skilled as Shamil in striking, but he has more power + length. Travis has the cardio to go 5 rounds, but lacks the wrestling that Shamil has.

I'm still on Lewis atm, but I'm not 100% sure yet.

p.s. Travis is training with Blackhouse MMA, but he'll still have Ronda's coach in his corner. Travis should look a little better, but who knows how good he'll actually look. If Ronda left her coach, Travis would leave him too, he's only staying with him cuz of Ronda.

I took a bet on Lewis based on these comments. I like the bet.

Sefo is mostly known for his kicks, iirc. Lundell is a wrestling and BJJ coach.

Maybe we'll see Browne fight on the outside with his good jab and arm + leg reach advantage, and look for take downs when necessary. He'll already have the cardio advantage.
