Travis Browne first comments following UFC on FOX 11 loss to Fabricio Werdum: 'Unfortunately, you catch an ass whooping'

No excuses from the heavyweight Hawaiian, just a promise to come back stronger.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight contender Travis Browne finally broke his silence following his loss to Fabricio Werdum in the main event of UFC on FOX 11, which took place earlier this month (April 19, 2014) inside the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida.

From his official Instagram account:

"Thank you guys for the support!! I'll be back as soon as I'm all healed up. Learned a lot about myself in this fight and look forward to making the proper changes to move forward!"

"Hey guys, been MIA for a little bit. Thank you for all the support and positive messages though, really help out. Unfortunately in this sport, you catch an ass whooping, but I look forward to getting out there, competing, and putting on a good fight."

Watch video highlights of his defeat here.

Browne lost a unanimous decision to "Vai Cavalo" after five rounds of action. Despite a strong start, the Hawaiian was unable to overcome injuries suffered in his grueling 25-minute affair, and will now head to the back of the contender's line.

Right after he heals up these nasty boo boos.

The good news is, "Hapa" is just 31 years old and likely entering his prime. Considering some of the names he's already added to his impressive resume, it probably wouldn't surprise anyone in the mixed martial arts (MMA) community to see him right back in the mix with a couple of quality wins.

But who do you want to see him face in his first fight back?
