    Bigfoot vs Browne

    Post  rudeboyben84 on Thu Oct 04, 2012 3:39 pm

    The winner of this will be up there with Struve ready to mix it up with top contenders I reckon.

    Browne hasnt a loss in 14 fights and Bigfoot is still highly though of despite getting such a 1 sided beat down from Cain.

    Although Silva is a couple of inches shorter he is heavier (about 30lbs) and has a 4" reach advantage which he uses well. Im expecting him to seems the bigger man and be the one trying to controll the range of the striking the him being the one to be doing the pushing into the fence when they lock up.

    Kongo was able to push Browne about a bit so Id expect Bigfoot to be able to controll the grappling.

    Having said that despite him being good at using that massive 82" reach I think im favoring Browne standing. I wouldnt be shocked to see a KO. Infact im expecting one. Browne is a 6"7 KO artist who is very agile and quick for a man his size. I see him teeing off on that big ol dome of Silvas and stopping him.

    Who are you all backing in this one? And where do you think it leaves the winner? Surely if Browne wins he is right up there and will be looking a "name" opponent next Mir, Carwin, Werdum or the likes? I wouldnt even mind seeing him vs Hunt.

    I think Browne stops Silva here too. Silva gets his alot, and his head is a big target!

    As you say, this will push Browne up, and he should face a top 5 fighter next, or at least top 10. Mir, Werdum etc spring to mind. Maybe Nelson first if he wants to build up slower?

    For some reason I think Big Foot will walk through Browne I'm just not sold on Browne he hasn't really impressed me.

    I know Big Foot's chin is a bit dodgy but I have a feeling Big Foot will out grapple Browne and probably TKO Browne in the mid Rounds. Browne is no DC or Cain I think Big Foot will be fine.

    Suppose Browne isnt putting him on his back like Cain did and if Bigfoot gets Browne on his back those hammerfists are about as good as Ive seen a Hw hit. I have a feeling Browne is going to hit a flying knee or some wild hayemaker because as Efils said Bigfoot is easy to hit!

    Bigfoot has good cardio for a big man and a weight cutter so I think the longer the fight goes the more it favors him.

    Wonder what type of shape Browne will be in, I know he doesnt cut to make 265 because he has been down around 250, but its a soft 250.

    I think Browne will use his speed and movement to out strike the clumsy Bigfoot standing and then eventually drop him with a clean combo and finish him.

    I think Browne will be fine in a cage clinch also,he's bigger and stronger (6'7 250lb)than anyone Bigfoots clinched with before,I just hope if it goes that way,we have a good ref,who's going to split them up quick enough and not put us through a boring clinch war stalemate.
    Bigfoot couldn't do anything of note in his clinch war with Arlovski,just like Kongo couldn't do anything apart from grab shorts and land knees to the thigh against Browne.(my memory abit fuzzy on that shitty fight,but wasn't it Browne who got the couple of takedowns from the clinch in that fight)

    Bigfoot has a good BJJ background,but I don't think browne should be to worried about following him to the ground to finish though,as I don't think Bigfoot is that much of a threat off his back.If he gets you on your back then that's a completely different story,but I've seen nothing from him,unlike a BJJ HW like werdum,to have to be scared to pound him out from his guard.

    Clinching will be a good strategy for Bigfoot as I think cardio could be Brownes undoing,if this goes past the second rd,then I think the fight will start to rapidly go in Bigfoots favour.


    If Browne wins lets have Browne as Reem's comeback opponent on the new Years card,if Bigfoot wins,then Struve vs Bigfoot sounds good to me.

    I want to see Mir vs Werdum as well

    Said it before and ill say it again, Id be happy of you were UFC matchmaker! Struve vs Bigfoot affraid Its like something that would should be for the Superhluk title.

    Mir vs Werdum is a fight long overdue I think its a fight most people wanted to see both times he was in UFC.

    Browne would be the Idea guy for Reem to warm up against for a title fight, I like that. Someone who would be willing to trade on the feet would really be ideal. I loved Browne KOing Struve seeing a guy his size do a superman punch is cracking.

    Good calls.

    Though im not sure that Browne is bigger or stronger than anyone Bigfoot has faced, considering he fought a lot of fights at Genuine Superheavy, only guys 265plus. The Size is something he wont struggle with. His reach is 4" loner the weight is only 2 or 3" id consider Silva the bigger man when in his career he has been outweighed.

    Dont know if im totally writing Silva off because of his chin but something about Browne makes me feel he will light Bigfoot up on the feet. He got some air on the flying knees I saw and at his height he doesnt even have far to travel to connect with chin. His GnP doesnt have shit of Bigfoots though and Bigfoot would be the one to land a Sub if it hits the ground. I just think Bigfoot a bit like Gonzaga fancies himself as a standup fighter more than he should.

    I think Silva takes this. He's fought better fighters than Browne and is more experienced. Might go to e decision but Bigfoot to get a 29-28.

    If it is a 5 rounder then 49-46 but 5 rounds does make you think more. I'm going Silva GnP 4th

    Cracking event, Really disapointed to see Browne get injured like that. Bigfoot has a mean streak.. he fired off a leg kick at the injured leg before the KO! Dont think the shot put Browne out but when he was down and injured there was no coming back.

    Bigfoot is still a solid top 10 fighter. I think he should get Mir or a rematch with Werdum next. His only Losses recently are to 2 of the top 5 Heavies.

    Hard to judge anything in that fight after that nasty knee injury,but well done to bigfoot he pounced and finished nicely.

    That was a really good event.

    Apparently there is no damage to his knee but he has torn his hamstring out for around 2-4 Months.

    Good to hear it's not a serious knee injury.
    I remember tearing my hamstring,hurts like a bastard,but at least he won't be needing surgery.
