Heavyweight hitter Travis Browne is officially back in business with the! The American mixed martial artist from Hawaii has been reinstated after the UFC conducted an independent investigation into the “domestic abuse” allegations made last month by his estranged wife, Renee Webb, and found “inconclusive evidence” to support her claim. Apparently, she has not pressed any charges against Browne.
On Friday night, Browne released the following statement via MMA Fighting through his manager, John Fosco.
I’d like to first thank my family, friends, fans and team for the overwhelming support they have shown me during this challenging time. This two-month period has taught me that strength truly does come from within. Sometimes saying nothing, requires more strength than saying everything. I made a conscious choice to keep quiet, comply and put my faith in the organization that has provided an amazing life for me and my family (UFC). They were forthright and honest from the beginning in stating that they took these allegations extremely seriously & were on a mission to get to the truth. I am so excited that this investigation has concluded and that i have the privilege to get back in the cage and do what i was put on this earth to do. In closing, my children are my life, they are my heart, they are my soul. Kaleo and Keawe have been taught to show women the utmost respect and that gift of parenting with a purpose is something that i can hold my head high and continue doing with pride.
The UFC stated,
Conducted by a former FBI agent with more than 25 years of experience, the seven-week investigation included interviews with multiple subjects associated with the principals, as well as the principals themselves,” the statement read in part. “The investigation found inconclusive evidence to support claims of alleged domestic violence involving Browne and inconclusive evidence that Browne had violated the UFC Fighter Conduct Policy. As a result, UFC has lifted Browne’s temporary suspension and anticipates him returning to competition in the coming months.
