    Let's see him get tested by a top 5-10 fighter, Erik Silva is more like top 15. I'm not riding on the Brown hype train yet. I think he loses to Hendricks, Woodley, Lombard, Condit, Lawlor and Rory.

    Yes we can only get hyped for fighters who have beaten top 5 opponents

    I got excited when I saw Jon Jones beat Bonnar who probably wasn't Top 10. I'm not saying Brown will win a belt, but the guy is very legit at 170 which is probably the deepest division in MMA at this time. Give the guy a top 5 fight and see how he does. I was super impressed last night and I predicted Jones and Weidman would wear belts the first time I saw those guys fight. Not saying Brown will wear a belt, I'm saying I 'm good at judging talent when I see it and I think Brown might be able to hang in the Top 5. Give him a contender fight and lets see what he can do. The guy has earned that right and he is super exciting to watch.

    Maybe if Sherdog didn't have such a confusing interface we could actually find these threads. No offense Sherdog, but you really need an overhaul of the forums

    Agreed.

    I thought the same thing when I first saw Jones, Cain, Pettis and Weidman... I also thought it when I saw Dunham, so I'm not perfect lol

    But I don't see it with Brown. I love, love, LOVE watching Brown fight and I think he'll stick around the top 10 for a while... but I don't see him getting that strap. Too much wrestling, strength and finesse in the top 5. Brown will give ANYONE a hell of a fight, he might even win some against the top 5, but I just can't see him getting to the title and I certainly can't see him winning it and holding it.
