Travis Browne picked up the highlight of the night with an amazing superman punch knockout of Stefan Struve in a heavyweight matchup at UFC 130.
What was the high spot of this fight?
The knockout, without a doubt. Browne had been having trouble finding Struve's chin up until that point, but he totally blasted him with the superman punch. Struve bent in half backwards like he just entered the Matrix, then collapsed to the mat. Two more hammerfists and it was over.
Where do these guys go from here?
Dana White made it clear that Travis Browne is now "in the mix" at heavyweight. In such a shallow division that's been decimated by injuries, Browne's extremely impressive performance means he's going to get an upper-echelon opponent next for sure. Ben Rothwell (if he ever comes back) would seem to be a fitting opponent, or perhaps it could be Roy Nelson
As for Struve, it's anyone's guess. He has made a habit of getting beat up in the first rounds of fights and making big comebacks lately, but that sure wasn't the case at UFC 130. His striking did look improved though, and he's clearly not done as a prospect. A battle with Jon Madsen might be the best fight for him right now.
Watch it now, later, or never?
Now. This is one of the highlight-reel KO's of the year, and you should be looking for it right after you read this sentence.
