Andrei Arlovski (pictured) and Travis Browne not only used to be teammates at Jackson MMA, but they were also roommates. The heavyweights are so close that they still call each other “brother.”
If that’s the case, there was some serious brother on brother crime Saturday at UFC 187.
Arlovski entered the scrap as more than a 3-1 underdog, but managed to turn back the hands of time and unleash a vicious assault on his bro. Browne, however, refused to quietly fade into the night.
He almost pulled off a miraculous comeback with an out-of-nowhere knockdown, but Arkovski bounced back up and continued dropping bombs until the shootout was called.
Oh, and did I mention all of this happened in the first round? It was one of the most exciting rounds in recent memory.
As expected, both took home an extra $50,000 for “Fight of the Night” honors.
UFC 187 took place inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
