Travis Browne a Free Agent – Negotiating New Deal With The UFC
Posted by Larry Csonka on 01.08.2014



- Travis Browne's manager, John Fosco, spoke with mmajunkie.com about Browne's contractual status with the UFC. Here are the highlights…

On Browne's Current Contractual Status: "There's no deal done between the UFC and Travis Browne right now, but all the talks that have been had up to this point indicate that we will be getting something done in the very near future, and they've always been fair with Travis. The UFC would like the deal done yesterday."

On Why a Deal Wasn't Done Before Now: "We were talking about extending an agreement, and the UFC made it very clear that they like Travis and they think he's a great fighter," Fosco said. "But based on his resume of opponents, he hadn't proven that he could beat the cream of the crop in that division, and that was something we agreed with. Overeem was a great win, but it's not like it was the second or third time in a row he beat a top 10, let alone a top 5, opponent. So we were in agreement, and we were willing to take less money for the Barnett fight to prove and put our money where our mouth is that Travis is that guy, and he is that good. The UFC even said they believe it, but they run a business, and he hasn't done it yet. Because of that, we decided to [not sign a new deal] because they let us."

On The UFC Paying Up With The New Contract: "We have no reason to think they won't," he said. "From the indications thus far, every indicator points to our interests being aligned, and both sides will be satisfied."
