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.

Antonio Silva def. Travis Browne via TKO (strikes, ref stoppage) at 3:27 of round 1
