WATCH: Fabricio Werdum Kicks Travis Browne’s Coach In The Stomach While Taunting After UFC 203 Win

Overeem kicks Travis Browne coach


Fabricio Werdum is a bad, bad man. The former heavyweight champion started his fight against Travis Browne with a vicious flying side kick to the face, and cruised to a decisive unanimous decision after Browne appeared to dislocate a finger in the first round. But while this fight was mostly ho-hum, the real fireworks took place after the final bell.

The crowd had been booing the lack of aggressiveness displayed in the final two rounds, and Werdum responded post-fight by taunting them with fake crying. When Browne’s coach Edmond Tarverdyan objected to Werdum’s antics with some foul language, the Brazilian replied with a swift kick to the stomach. Talk about a gut check.

It’s no secret that to enter the octagon you need to have a screw loose to some degree, but kicking your competitor’s coach after the match is out there even for a UFC fighter.

“Mom says ‘Never say bad things to nobody,” Werdum said when asked about the incident at the UFC 203 post-fight press conference. “He started it.”
