    Brown was bringing those lead hands back in the day.

    Faber gave it to him in the rematch, even with two broken hands.

    Then along came Aldo, who murdered them all.

    When people say Mike Brown I think, "Who is that?"

    When I hear Mike Thomas Brown I know exactly who they are talking about ;)

    The five greatest FW are Aldo, Holloway, McGregor, Edgar and Mendes.

    Conor beat 3 out of 4 and lost to none.

    I remember listening to Sherdog radio before Brown vs Aldo.

    All of their analysts gave Aldo no chance.

    Mike Brown really? Getting your belt due to the champion throwing a retarded elbow and then defending against that same fighter due to him breaking both hands in the same fight doesn't scream out look how great I am. I got nothing against the guy but he was lucky in the two fight with Faber and was fairly medicore throughout he always reminded me of Matt Hughes without being dominate.

    Brown was 22-4 before losing to Aldo.

    So because he capitalized on a champions mistake, he shouldn't be credited? I guess Stipe doesn't deserve credit for beating Werdum then? How fucking retarded is that.

    Mike Brown is absolutely a FW pioneer.

    Faber's leaked street fights were sick.

    he was a LW who couldn't compete at LW so he fought at FW and had decent success but his title run in the WEC was due to Faber fucking up nothing else.

    Uh, no.

    If you look at his record he bounced back and forth between the two having success in both classes.

    He has wins over

    Mark Homminick
    Yves Edwards (Lightweight)
    Jeff Curran
    Urijah Faber 2x

    He's a pioneer at FW whether you like it or not. Sounds like you're just a bitter Faber fan.

    Why is Edgar over Holloway? Max has more wins at FW and beat Aldo twice while Edgar lost twice to him.

    Edgar does not belong on that list.

    He is one of the greatest LW of all times, but he has accomplished literally nothing at FW.

    You could technically say he is one of the greatest fighters to compete at FW.

    Thats kind of the same way how Weidman made his name against Silva.

    But Brown did more in his weight class than the Wide Man.
