He could catch you coming in but if you can move your head and have a bit of speed about you, you should handle it.

Browne seems like a good fighter, and obviously the karate shit is stupid by the way he got owned by a punch in like 5 seconds jumping about like a fairy. If he used his jab a lot more and kept himself out of range, he might have some more success. Maybe if he faught ACTUALLY like Cruz.
Big Foot is a formidable grappler and has a very good BJJ game. He was more than holding his own on the ground with Werdum when they fought a while back. Dude is a damn good grappler. For Velasquez to handle Silva on the ground like that and turn the octagon into a butchers shop just highlights how devastating he really is.

Even though it most likely won't ever happen, I'd love to see Cain and Cormier lock horns.
