First off, I don't understand this matchmaking and especially how Silva was the favorite. Brown has just steamrolled Mike Pyle who's ranked higher than Silva, where as Silva had lost to Stun Gun, then Koed a no name. Second off, this matchmaking made no sense for me other than to give the fans an entertaining fight. How does Brown go from fighting Condit (#2 at the time) to fighting Silva (#14), it seems like they were penalizing Brown (#7) for getting hurt. Third, at this point you have to give Brown a top 5 guy and you have 4 options to do so. -Lombard--this would be Brown's worst option in my opinion. I see Brown trying to press the action early and getting caught by a Lombard bomb or getting ragdolled like Shields did. Face it, no one in the WW division should want to fight Lombard right now...Diaz had it right. -Nick Diaz--I dont think Diaz comes back for this fight unless he is both paid well and guaranteed a title shot with a win. This fight in my opinion would be a toss up as both would keep the fight standing with high volume striking. -Winner of Lawler/Berger--depending on how Rory Mac/Woodley turns out, and especially if its a boring decision by Rory, that could bump this fight to a #1 contender fight, espeically if Dana's boy Lawler wins...Dana wants Lawler v Hendricks 2--I dont think Brown beats either of these 2. -Winner of RoryMac/Woodley--especially if Rory Mac wins a boring decision, you could see Dana turn him over to Brown instead giving Rory a title shot. I think Brown pressures Rory early and doesnt allow Rory to get comfortable, therefore landing a KO after volume striking. I dont think Brown would fight Stun Gun...I feel that this fight doesnt really do anything for Brown, similar to the Erick Silva fight. Brown also has not done enough for a title shot yet, mainly because the UFC hasnt given him the opportunity other than the Condit fight which he unfortunately got hurt. Sidenote--How long is Saff out for...could we see Lombard v Saff this summer sometime, the fight definately makes sense? As best said...the welterweight picture is a BEAUTIFUL mess right now...lets just hope Joe Silva comes up with a good solution.
