Following allegations of domestic abuse from Travis Browne’s wife, Jenna Webb, the UFC has released a statement regarding the situation.

In a follow up statement that was posted on the promotion’s website, the UFC relayed:

“UFC is aware of the social media allegations made against heavyweight Travis Browne. 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, has denied the allegations in an interview with MMA Fighting.com. According to Fosco, Browne and Webb are undergoing divorce proceedings.

The 32 year-old Browne, who was stopped by Andrei Arlovski in May, is not currently booked for his next fight.
