Johny Hendricks-Matt Brown Set For UFC 185, New Main At UFN 60

ufc 185

Former UFC welterweight champion Johny Hendricks will meet Matt Brown at UFC 185, passing up a chance to compete for the title.

The move has forced officials to promote Brandon Thatch vs. Stephen Thompson to the main event role of UFC Fight Night 60.

Hendricks (16-3) dropped the title to Robbie Lawler last year. Brown (19-12) is also viewed as a top contender to the 170-pound belt.

Thatch (11-1) has won both of his UFC bouts, while Thompson’s (10-1) lone loss in six appearances came to Brown.
