This bout has a “backyard brawl” feel to it based on both fighters’ love of stand-up and attitude in terms of openly embracing the physicality of MMA. Brown is the welterweight division’s hottest fighter outside of king Georges St-Pierre with six straight victories, though he lacks the type of signature win success over Condit would bring. On the flipside, Condit is coming off a gutsy finish of Martin Kampmann and could immediately insert himself back into the contendership discussion with an impressive performance. Their bout is going to be bloody, brutal, and downright beautiful!
