To be fair, Mein rocked himself on the subsequent punch so ... ya know ...

I like Brown a lot I just don't like the fact he wants a title shot. He gets conveniently injured for Condit and hasn't fought any top guys.

it's like Sao Poleli wanting a title shot. Hell even Glover won all those fights and if he would have faced a Gus, Rua etc, he might not have reached the title.

The real reason I'm against him touching the belt is because he's a former druggie, while others were living this life Brown was shooting up.

No shit, a shame we didn't get to see him fight Condit but that wouldn't have gone too well for him.

He would be fun against most of the top 10, I don't see him going through them, but FFS give the man a chance.

there's even Robbie Lawler in the top 10, and Saffiedine is #10.

Also, Erick Silva is even a BJJ guy.

I don't think he breaks into the top 3 at all.

When UFC builds up a fighter, people complain. When UFC throws a fighter to the wolves, people complain.

I really hope brown lives up to the hype when faced with a wrestler/grappler in top 10, seems to be UFC is building up his streak, which is great so we get crazy fights like we just saw, but so utterly disappointing when wrestlers show you glaring holes in some stand up guys games.

I suppose its the whole Okami and Fitch ordeal ideology.

I like Matt Brown, hes tough, and I really hope he starts working on the ground like condit did to avoid being mopped. Right now, there is no way he'd last against Hendricks, who nullified GSPs wrestling, and hit Gsp, who is super evasive, time after time.

Not yet brown. Not yet.
Good analysis.

UFC is trying to clear the path to the top from top grapplers who can shut down these "exciting" but deficient mma fighters. Okami, Shields...both much better and well-rounded MMA fighters than Brown, still nowadays.
Bad new for the sport and the fans of it. Good new for the casuals, fans of the "show".

Brown can't win against grappler. He's another Melvin. But who knows, this is just my opinion.
