Travis Browne vs. Antonio Silva Booked for ‘UFC on FX 5′ Main Event in Minneapolis

(“NOOOOOOOOOO! What part of ‘rebound opponent’ do you morons not understand?”)

After having his fight against Ben Rothwell yanked out from underneath him, undefeated heavyweight Travis Browne has found himself in an even better situation. The UFC has confirmed that Browne will now be headlining UFC on FX 5 (October 5th; Target Center, Minneapolis) against Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva. Browne is coming off his destruction of Chad Griggs at UFC 145, and is currently nursing an ice-cream hangover.

Silva was absolutely dominated in his last two cage appearances, suffering a first-round TKO against Daniel Cormier in Strikeforce before being torn to shreds by Cain Velasquez in his Octagon debut at UFC 146. The Brazilian will certainly be a sizable underdog coming into the bout, but anything could happen right? (Answer: LOL, no.)

Not trying to bust balls here, but if the main event of this card features a guy on a two-fight losing streak, we’re probably not going to be looking at a massively stacked card; at least Struve and Miocic have both won their last three fights in the UFC. Currently, the only other fight booked for UFC on FX 5 is a featherweight tilt between Bart Palaszewski and Diego Nunes.

Antonio Silva looks like a lost body loosely tethered to a Macy's parade balloon.

Jesus, the last time the UFC came to Minneapolis the card featured Jon Jones, Brock Lesnar, and GSP. I like Trvis Browne just fine, but this might be one of the weakest main events of all time.

It might be time for you "MMA journalists" to start busting balls and consistently call out the UFC about these horrible cards. I would personal like to start giving a shit about this sport again.
