Matt Brown: “I’m only in this sport for one thing and that’s to beat GSP’s ass.”

Matt Brown: “I’m only in this sport for one thing and that’s to beat GSP’s ass.”

Stringing together six wins in the UFC is a feat in itself. Achieving such a thing at welterweight, one of the organization’s toughest divisions, is downright unique. However, Matt Brown did just that this past Saturday night at UFC Fight Night 26 when he knocked out Mike Pyle in less than thirty seconds, his fourth consecutive KO.

With champion Georges St-Pierre already involved in an upcoming title-defense against Johny Hendricks, not to mention none of Brown’s beatdowns involving Top 5 foes, “The Immortal” isn’t sure what’s in store for him in the immediate future. He only knows he’s breathing rarefied air and expects to be rewarded as such.

“Hopefully it put me somewhere, in a good position to get some big fights. In this sport you get what you earn, not what you deserve, so hopefully I earned something good here,” said Brown at the post-event press conference in a conversation captured by MMAWeekly. “I’ll fight whoever they want me to, but obviously I’m only in this sport for one thing and that’s to beat GSP’s ass.”

Brown improved his record to 18-11 with the plastering of Pyle, the sixteenth stoppage of the 32-year old’s career. Other victims on Brown’s current run include Stephen Thompson, Mike Swick, and Jordan Mein.

    I dig is attitude, but come on man. You need to get a Real top 5 victory before you start callin out the champ. Who does he think he is? Chael? Try callin out Condit or even Diaz, hes not doin anything. Im happy for him, and his 6 wins, they were all real fighters, but were they title contenders…….

    I do not understand the new attitudes of fighters these days, why would anybody who has never beaten any top 10 guys to date, nor any wrestlers call out the top guy and say his wrestling is better. He said you get what you earn not what you deserve, well go out and prove you can handle top level fighters and you will earn a title shot.

    reminds a bit of George Sotiropolis situation, he got 6 or 7 good but low tier wins on the bounce, the last of those being Joe Lauzon which at the time was a good win and got people saying he needs a number one contender fight.
    his opponents got better and he hasnt won a fight since bless him

    Alves, kampman, condit, rory, kos any of these guys would be the matchup hes looking for. Gsp will take him down and take a decision with no problems.

    He won 6 in a row in the division…..Should he get a bigger name fight ? Sure……But if he wants to call out the Champ at this point and put his name in the headlines, then go for it. I don’t blame Matt at all. He more than likely won’t get GSP but now but then again why not? Dana will make whatever fight he feels will sell the most so if Matt goes the Sonnen rout and it works then good for him. Nothing wrong with getting a fatter check.

    @hindsight

    Your G-Sot comparison is spot on. One good year doesn’t negate the fact that Brown was a 500 fighter and on the verge of being cut in 2011 after going 1-4.
    Jordan Mein and Mike Pyle are good wins, but they’re not title shot worthy wins by any means. To get a shot at GSP fighting the level of guys he’s fighting, he’s gonna have to put together a 10 or 11 fight win streak. I think he gets easily exposed by anyone with solid wrestling and a any sort of submission game.
    But I like watching him fight, so throw him in with Cote and see how they do.

    If he keeps talkin gsp and they give him a top 5 opponent and he wins by ko or even a finish then he ll get the title shot.

    And lets not forget Brown was supposed to get a bigger name fight here in the pitbull before injuries. Maybe Brown vs Ellenberger next? I know Jake lost but he is so much higher up in the rankings that it makes sense.

    Just out of interest, why are they considering Robbie lawler for a potential title contention matchup? I know he’s had two good results but still not enough of a solid body of work. Lets have a lawler Diaz rematch first..
    Matt brown should fight rory to see how he fairs against a very good all rounder

    Why do people keep bring up Diaz? He’s not fighting anymore. Dana is pretty much fed up with his crap.
