UFC fighter accused on Instagram of abusing former girlfriend

Heavyweight mixed martial arts fighter Travis Browne has been accused of domestic violence in an Instagram post made by his former girlfriend, Fox Sports reported on July 9.

According to reports, Browne was suspected of domestic violence after Jenna Renee Webb posted a photo collage on social media showing several injuries which she implied were inflicted by Browne. In a statement, the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) commission said they would not tolerate athletes that committed violent acts like this. An independent investigation was commissioned, but until then, Browne was prevented from joining a fight in Las Vegas.
