11-Travis-Browne-TUF-17-Finale-w-478x270UFC heavyweight Travis Browne arrived in the UFC in 2010 and has gone 5-1-1 in his seven fights with the organization.  He takes on his biggest named opponent and toughest test to date at UFC Fight Night 26: Shogun vs. Sonnen on Saturday in Alistair Overeem.

During the lead-up to the event – that coincides with the launch of the Fox Sports 1 channel – Overeem has said that his experience is going to play a big factor in the fight.

The bout with Browne will be Overeem’s fiftieth mixed martial arts fight.  He also has fourteen kickboxing bouts, including winning the 2010 K-1 World Grand Prix.  Browne made his professional mixed martial arts debut in 2009 and has sixteen fights of experience.

“On paper it makes sense, but I’ve been fighting with guys that have three times as much experience as I do my entire career,” said Browne on a recent media conference call.

“I’ve had to learn fast. I’ve kind of come up the hard way in this sport and just a sense of my training partners and my coaches and that’s been something that I’ve been having to deal with since day one.”

Browne believes Overeem’s experience is being given too much credence.

“We’ll see on Saturday. Unless he throws something at me that I’ve never seen before, I’m not too sure that experience is really going to be the X-factor in the fight,” he said.

“As far as Alistair goes, he’s got a great fan base, he’s a great name fighter, and I look forward to competing against him.”
