Travis Browne wraps up this list as a +164 underdog. I'm quite sorry there weren't any bigger underdogs to choose from, it's just that UFC 168's fights are largely really quite close or (on-paper) squash matches.
Anyway, Travis Browne is fighting Josh Barnett in what could very easily be a battle for a title shot (or, more likely, a spot in a top contender bout with Fabricio Werdum). Barnett's career is one that extends back well over a decade, and includes wins over some of the greatest heavyweights of all time.
The thing is, the only man among the modern-day elite heavyweights Barnett has fought is Daniel Cormier, who beat him up for five rounds.
Jonathan Snowden summed it up well with Chad Dundas:
Longtime MMA fans are starting to learn some hard truths about their favorite musclebound giants. First and foremost?
There is only one Randy Couture...Barnett is already walking the same path Nogueira, Fedor and Mir have already trod. He just doesn't know it yet. Travis Browne, however, will be there to kindly help him on his way. Look for a brutal knockout at UFC 168, with Josh Barnett staring up at the lights and contemplating, perhaps for the first time, what he's going to do with the rest of his life.
So yes, it's very easy to make a case that not only will Browne beat Barnett, but that he could knock him for quite the loop.
