UFC 168: Barnett vs. Browne Added To December Fight Card

Travis Browne

It looks like the UFC is trying to put together an epic year-end fight card with the addition of a new heavyweight matchup for UFC 168, which is scheduled for December 28, 2013, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

So far the main card features two championship fights that will headline a monumental rematch between UFC Middleweight Champion Chris Weidman (10-0) and No. 1 pound-for-pound MMA fighter in the world Anderson Silva (33-5). The co-main event will also feature a rematch between UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey (7-0) and former STRIKEFORCE Champion Miesha Tate (13-4). Both are coaching on the current season of The Ultimate Fighter on FOX Sports 1.

Now, we’ve just learned that Josh Barnett (33-6) and Travis Browne (15–1–1) will face each other in a heavyweight bout that is destined to end in a knockout. Both fighters are coming off exciting wins over top contenders. Barnett defeated Frank Mir by TKO in his debut return to the UFC, and Browne survived a flurry of strikes from Alistair Overeem, then knocked him out with a front kick and punches in August. It earned Browne the Knockout of the Night bonus award.

We’ll keep you in the loop when more fights are announced for UFC 168. Stay tuned on Yell! Magazine.
