Werdum had the timing down early, responding to a leg kick with a fast combination. Browne backed off and when he came back in, he went high.
The Brazilian came in hard again but Browne was the one who found success with hard shots. In fact, he landed a big enough punch that Werdum went down and "Hapa" just started unloading. Werdum looked close to going out at any moment but he stayed fighting for position and eventually he reestablished himself.
Then he got up and took Browne down!
He wasn't able to do anything from top position, however, and the American got back to his feet and went about throwing those big bombs he calls hands. Werdum came back with a body kick and Browne slapped his stomach to encourage another.
Browne got crazy and landed a wheel kick that Werdum ate and kept coming forward. They traded punches right after. Fabricio followed up with a spinning back kick, then another, then a big punch that looked to hurt Browne.
Sadly, the round ended.
