    Dropping his defense to protect his body was risky but he gritted it out and ended up making Silva gas chasing the ko and forgetting about the body. Brown then recoverd and served a comeback.

    That's smart fight iq to balance out the situation and comeback from a mean body shot. Give Brown Lombard, Rory, Or Condit next I say.

    Great fight IQ.

    Too bad Melvin didn't have that IQ.

    Yeah, absolutely great strategy, always a great idea to block punches with your head.

    I dunno if it was fight iq I reckon it was the fact that Silva was gassed and he wanted to finish it...

    It was also great fight IQ of Brock Lesnar to block the punches of Carwin until Carwin gassed himself out. Brock is P4P #1 fight IQ fighter.

    IQ LOL

    Made him gas ? LOL

    More like surviving dude !

    Leaving his head open is a recipe for getting KO'd quickly

    He was lucky at best.

    You can say it was a smart (though risky) move for him not giving Erick any breathing room by going after him right at the start of round 2 and 3 even when he's still hurt from that body kick. Erick got nothing left once Matt got back up in the 1st round

    trying to survive and lucking into fortunate circumstances isn't necessarily fight IQ

    he actually said the same thing TS said on ariel helwani's show on monday- he purposely exposed his head to dissuade erick from targeting his body.

    leaving your jaw open against a killer like Eric Silva is purely a high risk low reward maneuver.

    It worked but lets be real. 9-10 times your done.

    It was all he had! lets not praise that the technique.

    All you saying he exposed his head-come on now use common sense he blocked punches to the head and avoided power head shots but shifted his defense focus to body. He got caught with the quicker punches here and there.

    He kept pressure on to push back kicks all Eric needed was one or two more good kicks. Brown got him punching/gassing.

    Sigh. Obviously it was a good strategy since he couldn't take another body shot right at that moment.

    matt brown has a great gas tank and never lets off the pedal. silva is used to dictating the pace of a fight and wasn't ready for someone to go after him. he didn't learn from the fitch fight when fitch took the fight to him and completely dominated him.

    some might say that the stun gun was the same, but silva was actually pulling away and dominating stun gun until stun gun landed the KO punch he's never thrown before in his life. what you can take from that fight, is that silva didn't have a strategy for when stun gun did get aggressive and come forward with aggression.

    silva is used to running circles around his opponents. fitch and brown have shown the blue print to beat him. i don't think there's too many guys out there with the style to do that to silva. silva needs AKA or American Top Team. he needs guys who are going to push him more in training.

    Silva threw the fight. Brown crumpled to the ground after that kick and Silva had full on GnP but he deliberately let up and switched to back control. He got paid off to let the hometown hero win. Even Brown looked confused as hell after the fight lol
