Browne, Oliynyk to clash in Vegas this July

Hungry to smash his way back into the win column with the world watching during International Fight Week, Travis Browne will face off with submission master Alexey Oliynyk in a battle of heavyweight contenders to take place on the UFC 213 card on July 8.

In a championship doubleheader headlining the event at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Amanda Nunes defends her UFC women's bantamweight title against Valentina Shevchenko, and Yoel Romero meets Robert Whittaker for the interim UFC middleweight crown.

Fresh from a Fight of the Night battle with Derrick Lewis in February, Hawaii's Browne has hit a rough patch in a career that has already seen him win big fights over Alistair Overeem, Josh Barnett and Stefan Struve, so he knows how to bounce back from adversity, and he plans on doing that against Oliynyk, owner of a remarkable 39 submission victories, including a Performance of the Night finish of Viktor Pesta in January that he ended with the rare Ezekiel choke.
