PostSubject: UFC removes Travis Browne from rankings amidst domestic violence allegations levied by his girlfriend   Thu Jul 09, 2015 8:59 pm

Quote :
UFC heavyweight contender Travis Browne has been accused of domestic violence by his now ex-girlfriend Jenna Renee Webb.

Webb posted a series of photos on Instagram on Wednesday showing multiple bruises to her arms, legs, neck and face. She captioned the photos with, “Probably one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever made was walking away from this life and starting over. I’m still ashamed for saying as long as I did.” She posted a broken heart emoticon followed by the hashtag #domesticviolenceawareness.



Social media exploded following Webb’s post. In the comments, she named Browne as the abuser. “Yes it was Travis,” she wrote.

On Thursday, the UFC released a statement, removing its fifth-ranked heavyweight from all International Fight Week festivities pending a full, independent investigation into the matter.

Travis Browne“UFC is aware of the social media allegations made against heavyweight Travis Browne. The organization requires all athletes to act in an ethical and responsible manner, as mandated by the UFC Fighter Conduct Policy. UFC will not tolerate domestic violence or any other violation of the policy. Every athlete is deserving of due process and this situation, as with any official allegations, will be duly reviewed and thoroughly investigated by an independent party. In light of this news, Travis will not be participating in this week’s UFC International Fight Week activities in Las Vegas,” read the press release.


“The prevention of domestic violence and the education of the athletes is of the utmost importance to the organization. UFC holds its athletes to the highest standard and will continue to take appropriate action if and when warranted,” the statement added.

Looks like maybe one of the UFC's "nicest guys" might not be so nice after all......
