Matt Brown has stated this Saturday will be his retirement fight.
Brown meets Diego Sanchez in the co-main event on FOX Sports 1 at UFC Fight Night 120.
And while “The Immortal” seems to be second-guessing his decision, he explains what could draw him back.
Brown on why he’s thinking this is his retirement fight: “The number one thing is whether I have the motivation to have another championship run. I got really close with Lawler. I don’t want to be a journeyman. I don’t want to be just fighting for money and fighting to fight. In my mind, it’s about do I have the hunger to get back to the top?”
Brown on if he’s prepared for Saturday’s fight with Diego Sanchez: “I still have the hunger to fight. I think this is my retirement fight. I think every fighter goes through some introspection and questions at the end. I’m feeling great. My injuries are gone. My mind is clear. I have motivation and my hunger is back. If I can continue it, I will keep fighting. But if not, I’m not going to keep fighting just for the money.”
Brown on how he wants to end the fight: “I don’t have any specific ways I want the fight to go. I can go in there and accept anything that happens. I’m going to defeat him in any way I can. I don’t worry about what happens. He needs to worry about what happens.”
