Travis, like many other young fighters, finally learned to channel his aggression into mastering mixed martial arts (MMA).
Browne attended Palomar College for two years after graduating from high school, at which time he played basketball before deciding to focus instead on his MMA training. Oddly enough, it was on a basketball court where Travis was introduced to jiu-jitsu. One of his friends introduced him to Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and he ended up following his destiny by abandoning basketball to jump into professional mix martial arts.
