    Just revealed that UFC wanted Matt Brown vs Dong Hyun Kim II for UFC Fight Night South Korea but he declined the fight.

    That is why Jorge Masvidal is fighting Dong Hyun Kim.

    I hope fans criticize Brown for the blatant ducking because many South Korean fans are disappointed by this.

    Kim Brown II would've been huge.

    Brown didn't want to get exposed and dominated easily on the mat again.

    Smart move. He has nothing to offer Ant Hell Kim if he fought smart and just grappled him.

    Probably for a tougher, higher ranked opponent. He has gotta be at the end of his career.

    Clearly because Kelvin is a higher ranked tougher opponent.

    Turning down a fight =/= Ducking.

    Kelvin was the true #7 before he got harshly relegated, due to not making weight. So, yes. Gastelum was higher-ranked.

    Anyone with a slight knowledge as to what Matt's limitations are knows that DHK has improved just as much since their first fight and would absolutely demoralize him on the ground; ie., a Maia Magney type affair. Brown didn't want to eat double hammer fists from the bottom all night in a foreign country. I don't blame him. Anyone with half a brain knows that DHK, and Maia should be ranked well above Matt. Hey Matt fans still waiting on those top ten victories douchebags.

    I'm still waiting on Matt to beat any ranked fighter at all! (Silva might've been Top 15 when they fought, but that's about it)
