“Where you at Georges?” Brown asked, after stopping Mike Pyle in just under 30 seconds. “Six in a row.”
Brown (18-11) has seen a career re-birth since going 1-4 during a five-fight stretch a few years ago. He has finished five of his last six opponents including Pyle, someone he previously trained with.
“I know how tough Mike Pyle is,” Brown stated. “He is good enough to be champion. He is better than GSP, I guarantee that.”
Brown landed a nasty knee to the head that dropped Pyle, following up with several uncontested rights. Pyle, once he came too, complained about the stoppage but there was no protesting this one.
Pyle was complaining to the ref about the stop, but was unable to do so until he came to. It appeared he didn’t know what happened in the end of the fight.
