Not only is Mike Pyle better than GSP, Matt Brown’s wrestling is better too

Posted: August 20, 2013 in Commentary/Opinion

MattBrownMatt Brown seemed to be a bit miffed that his in-cage chat with Joe Rogan Saturday night wasn’t a regular thing. Apparently, Brown keeps getting shafted out of his post-fight convos. Now we know why. It seems the “Immortal” has a knack for saying  things that make you say, “huh?”

He’s not crazy like Mayhem Miller or the Ultimate Warrior. He’s not even like Jacob Volkmann. But we just busted Brown’s balls for trying to tell us the guy he just decimated—Mike Pyle—was better than GSP. And now he’s got even more to say—this time he compared himself favorably to GSP.

There are just too many guys in front of him. He’s currently ranked 10th in the UFC and with guys like Johny Hendricks, Carlos Condit, Martin Kampmann, Rory MacDonald and a handful of others, Brown is just not that close to a title fight.

Having said that, I agree that his level of competition has to increase significantly in his next fight. Perhaps a rebounding Jake Ellenberger might be a logical step up for Brown. Until then, let’s all just sit back and enjoy Brown’s future comments. They are sure to please.

  1. […] heard a few puzzling ideas come from Brown’s mouth which included the insane suggestion that Mike Pyle is better than Georges St-Pierre and how Brown himself would “destroy” the all-time great. Now he’s turned his attention to […]
