UFC On FX 5 Results: Antonio Silva earns 1st round TKO over Travis Browne

Antonio Silva drilled Travis Browne with an overhand right, knocking the seemingly injured Browne to the canvas at UFC On FX 5 in Minneapolis.

After that, the man they call "Bigfoot" pummeling Browne into defeat. Silva jumped on the matted Browne and landed strike after strike until referee Herb Dean called the fight at 3:27 of the first round.

Silva improved to 17-4 with the TKO, and Browne fell to 13-1-1.

The injury to Browne's right knee occurred after he stepped awkwardly, absorbing a strike to the face from Silva. He fought on through his first UFC fight, although much of his athletic style was hampered.

Browne made no excuses, though, giving credit to Silva in the post-fight press conference.

Putting (the injury) aside," he said, "Bigfoot came out and won the fight. Not trying to take anything away from the guy. Come back stronger."

The win gives Silva a sense of renewal in UFC after losing to former heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez in May, which was his second consecutive loss.
