We propose the disappearance of “the hyperon puzzle” in neutron star (NS) by invoking two new-physics prescriptions: modified gravity theory and braneworld scenario. By assuming that NS lives on a 3-brane within a 5d empty AdS bulk, gravitationally governed by Eddington-inspired Born-Infeld (EiBI) theory, the field equations can be effectively cast into the usual Einstein's with “apparent” anisotropic energy-momentum tensor. Solving the corresponding brane-TOV equations numerically, we study its mass-radius relation. It is known that the appearance of finite brane tension λ reduces the compactness of the star. The compatibility of the braneworld results with observational constraints of NS mass and radius can be restored in our model by varying the EiBI's coupling constant, κ. We found that within the astrophysically-accepted range of parameters (0
