Tonight’s UFC Fight Night co-main event in Boston saw heavyweight up and comer Travis Browne taking on a crafty veteran in Alistair Overeem who was looking to celebrate his 50th professional MMA bout in style. Unfortunately for “The Reem” that would not be not be the case. Instead he would find himself as the victim of one of the greatest heavyweight KO’s in UFC history for the second time this year.
Early on it looked like we were bearing witness to just another kickboxing clinic from the former multi-promotion Dutch fighting champion. Alistair Overeem put it on Travis Browne in the first round of the contest landing a smorgasbord of strikes on the proud Hawaiian. Browne ate everything Overeem threw at him. Punches, kicks, and knees with intentions of the unhealthy variety were coming from all angles via the former K-1 champion.
