Jenna Renee Webb alleges domestic violence by UFC fighter Travis Browne
Travis Browne was pulled from a planned appearance on behalf of the UFC after his wife Jenna Renee Webb posted photos on Instagram showing evidence of alleged domestic violence.
Webb posted four shots on Wednesday showing bruises and marks on her face, elbow, neck and knees. She said Browne (17-3-1) had done the damage.
“Probably one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever made was walking away from this life and starting over. I’m still ashamed for staying as long as I did,” Webb wrote as her caption for the injury images.
Browne, who despite being 1-2 in his last three fights is still one of the UFC’s top heavyweights, was pulled by the organization from appearing at UFC Fight Week.
“UFC is aware of the social media allegations made against heavyweight Travis Browne,” the organization said in a statement. “The organization requires all athletes to act in an ethical and responsible manner, as mandated by the UFC Fighter Conduct Policy. UFC will not tolerate domestic violence or any other violation of the policy. Every athlete is deserving of due process and this situation, as with any official allegations, will be duly reviewed and thoroughly investigated by an independent party. In light of this news, Travis will not be participating in this week’s UFC International Fight Week activities in Las Vegas.
“The prevention of domestic violence and the education of the athletes is of the utmost importance to the organization. UFC holds its athletes to the highest standard and will continue to take appropriate action if and when warranted.”
Browne’s manager John Fosco denied the allegations, telling TMZ that Webb is accusing Browne of domestic violence to get back at him for cheating on her. Browne also says the decision to pull out of the even was mutual.
