    He still has arguably the best elbows in MMA and the best muay thai clinch game weve ever seen in the sport. Still a good puncher and kicker too and showed good sub defense early. He has some of the most dangerous GNP too, completely fucked up Saunders on top worse than he did Erick Silva

    hes beaten Wonderboy and Lima who are 2 of the best WWs in the world. Obviously a while ago but still something.

    Grapplers like Demian, Colby, Usman would be tough but someone like Ponzi would be a war

    He is way, way too slow

    Brown to finish Saunders was the easiest call on this card and even I was a little worried at how far behind he was when it was time to pull the trigger

    He could break the top 10 if his body holds up or if his opponents don't target it. He physically looks powerful and his offensive arsenal is still very sharp.

    Matt Brown is a personal all time favourite for violent, engaging fights.

    Huge Brown fan and sadly this sums it up. He is a brute and a tough guy with some skills but he lacks the speed and movement

    As noted above, if Perry wins his fight tonight, make Brown vs. Perry.

    Would be a great fight. Brown at his peak would have shredded Perry with minimal effort. Even brown at this stage in his career should be the comfortable favorite to win but it would be fun as hell to watch.

    No. Aside from maia and Diaz (who both would best him) everyone from 5-15 are much better, faster, technical strikers who would end brown with body shots rather easily

    Watching Lawler staredown with Colby & Ben, I'm surprised he can still make 170. He looks enormous, bigger than he did in his title run.

    Brown is a junkyard dog, dude is a national treasure and should be treated as such

    Is he the only fighter to survive a flash KO from Wonderboy?
