  • “Hapa” is believed to be possibly planning to join another promotion

Travis Browne has been released by the UFC after seven years of inactivity.

The UFC has made it official

Browne has been included in the UFC roster despite not fighting since 2017. By that, it means that “Hapa” was being treated like other active fighters in the promotion in terms of drug testing.

However, MMA Fighting’s Damon Martin reported on Tuesday that the UFC has finally decided to cut Browne.  

“Travis Browne has been released from the UFC roster after his contract was completed, per UFC officials Browne hasn’t fought since 2017 and I’ve not heard anything that he plans to compete again but he’s no longer with the UFC,” Martin wrote on X.

Travis could be planning something

Shortly after the report, MMA Junkie’s Nolan King added that Browne was actually eyeing a UFC return earlier this year. However, it’s clear that “Hapa” is no longer pushing through with it but King suggested that it could still happen but probably with a different promotion.

“Earlier this year, it sounded like Travis Browne was invested in a comeback. I’m not sure if this puts that to rest… or is allowing him to do that elsewhere,” King wrote.

Browne has been a professional MMA fighter since 2009. He made his UFC debut in 2010 and fought 17 times for the promotion.

Prior to being cut, “Hapa” suffered a four-fight losing streak, including knockout losses to Cain Velasquez and Derrick Lewis. He last fought at UFC 213 where he was submitted by Alexey Oleynik via neck crank.
