UFC on FX 5 live blog: Travis Browne vs. Antonio Silva

The main event of the evening at UFC on FX 5 is Travis Browne vs. Antonio Silva. This is a heavyweight fight, meaning neither competitor can be greater than 265 pounds (with a one pound allowance). This bout is scheduled for five, five-minute rounds. The referee in charge of the action is Herb Dean.

Round 1: Both fighters open orthodox and Browne misses right away with an overhand right as well as several other wild kicks. Silva lands an outside leg kick, but not with a ton of authority. Silva presses Browne into the fence, but eats a knee to the midsection in the process. Now the two are clinched along the fence jockeying for position and Browne nearly overhooks the cage to avoid a takedown. The UFC commentators note something appears awkward about Browne's left knee and he's off balance as he throws strikes. Browne eats a monster right hand from Silva and collapses. The Brazilian follows up and Herb Dean has no choice but to step in.
