Things have changed drastically for Matt “The Immortal” Brown since a Nov. 2007 submission loss to Seth Baczynski. The 170lb knockout artist is now at the top of the heap in the welterweight class, as he’s now racked up six wins in a row, going undefeated in the past two years.
The Immortal has looked just that – the :30 second decimation of a gritty veteran in Mike Pyle at UFC Fight Night 26 this past Saturday is proof that the power-puncher is in desperate need of a top-ranked opponent – or perhaps the winner of Georges St. Pierre vs. Johny Hendricks at UFC 167 would be willing to put the wrestling of Brown’s to the test.
“I know where my wrestling stands. It’s simply a matter of executing those abilities in the ring with GSP. I can outwrestle him. I’m calling it right now,” Brown told MMAJUNKIE
But what he didn’t get to is that he wouldn’t have to try if he managed to put the hurt on Pierre in round one, like he does with every other opponent.
Once Brown blasted through Pyle, he called out GSP, saying six wins in a row has to be worth a chance to fight for a championship.
Maybe he gets paired with the victor of UFN 27: Condit vs. Kampmann fight – a rematch of a welterweight war that took place when Kampmann welcomed the WEC champion to the Octagon in April of ’09.
