A month ago UFC welterweight Matt Brown was preparing to duke it out with Dan Hardy at UFC on FOX 7. However, Hardy was forced out of the fight for health-related reasons and Jordan Mein was tabbed as a replacement.
Though his opponent changed, Brown’s attitude towards the tilt didn’t nor did his preparation. The 32-year old finisher recently spoke to the UFC about his match-up with Mein where he said he wasn’t worried about what is awaiting him in the Octagon tomorrow night.
“I don’t know what to expect from him. I don’t care what he does,” said Brown. “I’m not concerned with how he trained or what his gameplan is…I’m concerned with what I’m going to do to him. I plan on punching his face and putting a hurting on him.”
“The only thing that makes a difference is how MY mind is when I walk in there. It doesn’t matter who the opponent is,” Brown concluded.
The 16-11 Brown is on a four-fight winning streak including a knockout of Mike Swick in his most recent scrap. Comparably, Mein is 27-8 and has his hand raised nine of the last ten times he’s seen action. Fans can catch them open up the main card on FOX at approximately 8:00 PM EST.
Brown’s complete comments along with a few from Mein can be seen below:
