Travis Browne talks about MMA coaching and Edmund Tarverdyan’s altercation with Werdum.

Travis Browne went on UFC Unfiltered today and spoke to hosts Matt Serra and Jim Norton.

Travis discussed things like when he dislocated his finger, Edmund Tarverdyan, and the differences in fight camps. Here are a few highlights from the interview:

“After the fight, the crowd was boo’ing; As they should, because it was a shitty fight. I guess Werdum was doing the crybaby thing with his knuckles to his eyes and Edmund thought he was doing it towards me. So Edmund said to him, ‘Why don’t you have some fu**ing respect for the guy you just fought?’ All of a sudden, Werdum squares up and push kicks Edmund. He said (crying voice), ‘I thought he was gonna come after me. He’s a fighter and accomplished kickboxer and he had this look in his eyes that he was going to come after me.’ Then it gets turned around, because that jackass gets the mic at the post fight press conference.”

“Some of the stuff that I’ve seen (towards Edmund)… I mean, it is what it is. I don’t think that he deserves it (criticism). Show me a coach that hasn’t lost as a coach, where his or her athletes haven’t lost. I get the same reaction from the fans and I’m like, ‘Get the hell out of here. There isn’t a single one.'”

“At Jackson/Wink, I really relied heavily on training partners, to get work in. There were certain things there, I picked up more from training partners. The coaches were there to coach, but it was more of a team coaching aspect.  Working with Edmund and Ricky Lundell, the difference is, I get a lot of one on one time.”

Travis Browne will face ‘The Black Beast’ Derrick Lewis on Saturday night in the main event, at UFC Fight Night: Halifax.
