UFC on Fox Sports 1: Matt Brown Knocks Out Mike Pyle; Is He A True Welterweight Contender?
UFC on Fox Sports 1 featured an incredible welterweight bout between Mike Pyle and Matt Brown. Both of these fighters have been on a roll as of late, making this contest all the more important in their hopes of moving up this heavily-contested division. Also, both were former training partners, making this bout all the more intriguing.
In the first, Brown was able to land some good kicks, pressuring Pyle up against the cage. Brown then landed a knee, sending Pyle to the canvas. Brown followed it up with some coffin nail punches, forcing the ref to step in. It was truly an incredible performance from Brown, one that has Knockout-Of-The-Night written all over it. Whatever Brown is doing in training, it’s certainly paying off when he steps inside the cage as he is now on a six-fight winning streak, and doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon.
For Pyle, this may be his last chance at UFC gold, but he has had an exciting MMA career thus far. Brown, on the other hand, is maybe one more win away from a title shot, but it’s time for media and fans to start giving him some credit. Five out of six of his fights have been finished by way of TKO or KO. It puts the entire welterweight division on notice, and he is becoming one of the most dangerous strikers in the welterweight division.
After the win, Brown called out Georges St. Pierre, who will be taking on Johny Hendricks for the welterweight championship. If Brown can keep up his winning ways, he’s knocking on the door of a title shot.
