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.
