    ...and it may not be who you were expecting!

    During a recent interview with FOX Sports, Lewis said that Tarverdyan shouldn’t be to blame for Browne’s recent struggles, as ‘Hapa’ should already have the experience to prepare himself for a fight:

    “I really haven’t been paying attention to him. I really just found out who Edmond [Tarverdyan] was until Ronda [Rousey] lost and everybody was blaming her coach on why she’s been losing,” Lewis said. “That’s when I heard who Edmond was and that maybe he was an [expletive].”

    “I don’t think it has nothing to do with the coach,” Lewis said. “Seeing that you’re a veteran and it’s not like his third or fourth fight. You have 20 fights, you should know what it takes to get yourself ready. If you don’t feel like you’re ready, you let your coach know ‘hey we need to work on a little bit more of this’. The guy’s a veteran. He’s been fighting at the top level for four or five years now. He should know what it takes by now to get in fight-ready shape. You can’t really blame the coach.”


    /

    “I’m sure he don’t like everyone teasing him and saying he doesn’t have a good coach so I’m sure he’ll come out wanting to prove a point that he’s in the right place,” Lewis said. “Hopefully he comes out with his hands on fire. I’m expecting the worst.

    “Actually, I’m expecting the best Travis Browne when we step into that cage and that’s what he’s going to get out of me.”

    That Travis sucks these days is not Edmonds fault. It's Travis fault.

    It's his own fault he left the Jackson-Wink team to hang out with Ronda

    Edmond is an incredible coach and striker. I'd like to see him face Werdum next.

    Travis Browne was scary with Alliance and a top contender with John/Wink. Edmond is a terrible coach obviously with zero adjustments made from Rousey's return.

    I believe he left originally because Jackson invited Overeem to the camp.

    I thought he left because Ronda needed someone to bring her starbucks large iced lattes in LA. Easier for Travis to just relocate.

    I think this is a very close fight. If Matt Mitrione beat the beast, then Travis can beat the beast.

    Edmund is an awful coach from what I can tell as a keyboard warrior. And if that is the case, Browne should know better and leave for a better gym.
