Oahu’s Browne loses fourth straight UFC fight

  • ASSOCIATED PRESS / 2016

    Travis Browne tapped out to a choke hold in the second round against Aleksei Oleinik tonight at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Oahu’s Travis Browne suffered his fourth consecutive loss in the UFC when he tapped out to a choke hold in the second round against Aleksei Oleinik in the final preliminary bout of UFC 213 tonight at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Browne (18-7-1, 9-7-1) was a 3:1 favorite against Oleinik (52-10-1, 4-1) and scored the first knockdown of the fight midway through the first round.

Oleinik withstood the initial onslaught and eventually scored a knockdown of his own and nearly submitted Browne from his back when the first round ended.

Browne secured a takedown early in the second round but didn’t land a single punch while on top. Oleinik eventually worked his way up and then took Browne down.

It wasn’t long before Oleinik took Browne’s back and secured a choke, forcing Browne to submit at 3 minutes, 44 seconds.

Browne, who is ranked No. 9 at heavyweight, hasn’t won since a third-round TKO of Matt Mitrione in January 2016. Oleinik is ranked No. 14 at heavyweight.
