    Silva gassed halfway through the 1st round, and it was pretty much a gimme from that point on. Before that he was dropped several times, and was even dropped by a gassed Silva in the 2nd. Neither guy deserves to be top 10.

    Anyone who thinks he poses a challenge to Woodley, Lombard, Ellenberger, Condit, Lawler, or Hendricks is delusional

    Edit: I forgot about Rory. Maybe Brown can out tough Rory.

    He may not be championship material, but Matt Brown poses a challenge to every fighter you just mentioned.

    Deal with it.

    Regardless if you think he can beat a contender, he's earned his shot, period.

    People are excited becasue Matt Brown comes to fight and makes it exciting 99% of the time. Who cares if he gets smoked in a title fight or against a top 5. Can't we just be happy about a guy who pretty much always fights their ass off and has also been improving every fight?

    Im here to defend matt brown, he'll likely get a top 5 next to see just how true your statements are, right now he's on a damn good win streak. Give him the winner of Lawler-Ellenberger and we'll have a title eliminator

    Good win for Brown but it's pretty obvious if you attack his body you can beat him

    Silva gassed because Brown had insane rnc defense.

    I don't think you can doubt Brown against anyone at this point. I think all those guys are better than Brown but it's clear that you have to KILL Matt Brown to beat him.

    I wouldn't bet on Brown against any of those guys, but I would have no interest in gambling on a Matt Brown fight.

    No, and we also need to scramble to come up with lame excuses that downplay his achievements
