UFC on Fox Sports 1: What’s Next For Travis Browne and Michael Johnson?

+Read full article
Travis Browne UFC

Winslow Townson-USA Today Sports

Two fighters that showed impressive skills at UFC on Fox Sports 1 were Travis Browne and Michael Johnson. Both were able to pick up much-needed wins, furthering their career in their respective divisions. Let’s now take a look and see what’s next for them in terms of an opponent.

Travis Browne scored one of his most impressive wins over a dangerous opponent in Alistair Overeem. Early in the fight, Browne was getting dominated by Overeem, who was able to land a barrage of knees to the body and head. Browne recovered, however, and was able to deliver an incredible front kick right on Overeem’s chin.

Now Browne is on a two-fight winning streak and becoming a breakout star in the heavyweight division. Up next for him should be a bout with the winner of Roy Nelson vs. Daniel Cormier. Both fighters would present great challenges for Browne.

Or, maybe he could have a fight with Stipe Miocic. Both of these heavyweights love to stand and trade, making it a fun fight for the fans.

Michael Johnson scored an impressive unanimous decision over Joe Lauzon, putting on one of his best performances over a game opponent. Johnson was able to showcase his crisp boxing and speed, and it seems that his previous setbacks in terms of his grappling and striking, have been fixed for now.

Up next for him should be a bout with Evan Dunham. Both fighters are well-rounded, and a win puts one fighter one step closer to a title shot. Also, a bout with Donald Cerrone would be fun to watch as both have competent striking games.

Dana White Doesn’t Think Conor McGregor Can Beat Rafael dos Anjos

Things are getting interesting ahead of UFC 196. The headlining fight at that March 5 pay-per-view event will see UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor move up to lightweight to face the champion of that division Rafael dos Anjos. If McGregor succeeds he will become the first UFC fighter to hold belts in two different divisions simultaneously. The oddsmakers have McGregor as the favorite ahead of the fight. UFC president Dana White doesn’t necessarily hold the same opinion.
