Travis Browne Views Fight vs. Antonio Silva as a "Great Opportunity"

| by

Travis Browne is excited to make a name for himself. "Hapa" will face Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva in the main event of UFC On FX: Browne vs. Bigfoot this Friday night in Minneapolis.

Since the Zuffa purchased Strikeforce and combined the heavyweight division with the UFC, several marquee matchups have been signed. Browne will be looking to make a statement with a win over Silva, who owns a resume that includes a win over Fedor Emelianenko.

"Fighting 'Bigfoot' on FX - in the main event - is a great opportunity for me," Browne said. "The heavyweight division is more stacked than ever. It is so hard to get into the Top-5 right now, and everyone is looking so impressive; you have to be consistently impressive."

The 30-year-old Browne has earned four UFC victories and a draw with Cheick Kongo. Browne (13-0-1) has stopped Chad Griggs and Stefan Struve inside the Octagon.
