    Matt Brown put together one of the most shocking and exciting fights, in recent years. WHO recovers from a body kick after having the wind knocked out of them??? All this, and MAYBE he pockets $60k after taxes.

    That's really nothing when you see how much punishment he took.


    Floyd Mayweather's paycheck is currently approaching the $100,000,000 mark, after PPV's are tallied, for a majority decision win.

    There's something really wrong here, and it's the marketing. Plain and simple. More people hate Floyd than like him, and he'll probably be close to a billionaire by the time his career is done. With none of his fights even coming close to a "Brown vs Silva" excitement level.

    The only excitement is in the HYPE for his fights, and that's something the UFC has to get better at if they want their brand to succeed, over time.

    Floyd doesn't have an organization to go through, like the UFC. He's essentially his own business.

    Mayweather is a masterclass in boxing, his own brand, and can market.
    Brown is... a can beater

    Matt Brown would destroy Mayweather in a street fight not because he trains in mma but like Akira Hongo, he has INSANE amount of tenacity towards martial arts!

    The best boxer in the world gets paid more than a brawler with no wins against top ten combatants.

    There is a wroldwide boxing culture continuing from generation to generation. Boxing, even if it looks boring and one-dimensional to us MMA fans, is far more interesting to many people than MMA.

    I think the UFC does a pretty good job HYPING. It can put some efforts into spreaing MMA into countries that do not yet recognize it. It will take time to be recognized worldwide as a legit sport like boxing is. Its not really good comparing MMA to boxing as the age difference is just too big.

    Who cares if Brown can beat Mayweather in a street fight.
    Doesn't change the fact he Mayweather earns more in 1minute of boxing than Brown does in years of fighting.
    Mayweather breaths boxing.

    Mayweather/Maidana was a better fight than Brown/Silva

    If you wanna compare someone to Mayweather, then compare GSP or Aldo. Not Matt Brown.

    Putting Matt Brown and Floyd in the same sentence should be something one should be imprisoned for. Absolutely disgusting.

    There is nothing wrong here. If anything, Matt Brown shows people how primitive MMA still is.

    Only in MMA, can a guy with zero footwork and defensive movements walk forward and does the same thing for 15 minutes and is ranked top 10 in the division.

    If Mayweather fights like Matt Brown in boxing, he would have gotten knocked out and he wouldn't be the diva he is today.

    Ever heard of Antonio Margarito!???

    I remember how Floyd dodged him like crazy, now granted dude was a cheater but he had less boxing skills than Matt Brown!
