Both Brendan Schaub and Travis Browne were trying to recover from losses when they collided in the cage at tonight's (Sat., Dec. 6, 2014) UFC 181: "Hendricks vs. Lawler 2" pay-per-view (PPV) at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
It looked like an evenly matched heavyweight showcase for the first few minutes. Then Browne connected clean on a huge uppercut that floored "Big Brown." Although Schaub survived the initial follow up, "Hapa" jumped all over him and used the advantage of a rocked opponent to transition to half guard, then full mount, then back control.
After a series of punches went unanswered, at least to the referee's liking, the bout was called.
Schaub protested, but he was taking a number of hard punches while simply waiting out the round. With some 10 seconds remaining, the safe call was made.
