1:09 PM PT -- Travis' manager John Fosco tells TMZ Sports ... the UFC fighter adamantly denies the allegations saying all claims of domestic violence are completely false.
Fosco says they believe Jenna is simply trying to smear Travis' name -- after finding out that Travis recently cheated on her with another woman.
Fosco says the decision to pull the fighter from UFC Fight Week activities was mutual -- and he's "happy" the organization is running an investigation.
"This is part of being in the public eye and we’ll just have to deal with it”
The UFC has pulled fighter Travis Browne from UFC 189 Fight Week activities after his wife claimed he beat her up ... and posted pics to prove it.
Browne's wife, Jenna Renee Webb posted graphic and disturbing photos on her Instagram page showing brutal injuries she claims she suffered when Browne attacked her.
FYI -- Browne is 6'7", 236 pounds and has a record of 17-3-1.
We spoke with Webb who tells us the incident went down back in February -- but claims she DID NOT and WILL NOT go to police ... instead, Webb says she plans to divorce Browne and move on.
"I did what I felt in my heart that I had to do to deliver a message to other people that are being abused and other people that he may potentially abuse in the future," Webb says.
"I do not plan on pressing charges. I’ve prayed for a long time that he would become a better person, and I will continue to pray for him in hopes that he can make changes and salvage a life for him and his boys."
Attempts to reach Browne for comment have been unsuccessful.
The UFC also issued a statement saying while Browne has been temporarily sidelined -- "every athlete is deserving of due process, and this situation, as with any official allegations, will be thoroughly reviewed and thoroughly investigated by an independent party."
