    I think it was on Beatdown after the Bell on the SRN, they dubbed Matt Brown as the unofficial UFC Television Champion... As a former WCW/NWA fan I got a laugh out of that. I kind of like the idea of having the winner of the opening fight on the Fox broadcast get to hold on to that spot and be challenged by other undercard fighters for the right to open the broadcast.

    Matt Brown has taken over the roll of chris lytle for me.. in fact I think I like his overall style more. It would be awesome to see matt take out a top 5 or 10 guy, but he is going to have put some work in and bring his A game.

    brown has become the new chris lytle. he wasn't supposed to win his last two fights, and he went for the throat and got the wins. he'll never be champion, but the UFC will give him his due with a high-profile fight, kind of like how hamill got to fight rampage after putting together a good streak.

    looking at his history, it's amazing what he's accomplished. he's a very inspirational figure. and to come back from heroin addiction no less?

    Matt Brown is just a different animal than most technical fighters, he comes in to hurt you and means it. But doesn't get too wild. There is a methodical approach to his agression that makes him dangerous. One thing is for sure any welterweight that looks past Matt Brown is gonna get fucked up. Matt Brown doesn't fuck around...

    I think we all know that it's not likely he's going to get a title shot anytime soon. That being said there's nothing wrong with showing a little enthusiasm toward an exciting and hard working crowd favorite. At the very least he deserves a step up in competition, which is all anyone is really gettin at here.

    He can certainly make a valid argument for a title shot.

    I love watching Brown fight, he's super exciting, but c'mon now here about title contention. I hate to be the bubble burster here, the first top 15 fighter Brown gets who has a relatively high fight IQ will be smart enough not to stand and bang and just brawl with Brown, will take him down and sub him in short order.

    If you look at his win steak, it's pretty telling:
    Chris Cope- Cut
    Luis Ramos- Cut
    Stephen Thompson- Not top 30
    Swick- Not the same fighter as before the health problems, had alot of similar trouble in the Johnson fight. Years of inconsistency and basically, a shell of his former self. Solid win I suppose.
    Mein- Impressive win, but Mein is at best, a 20ish ranked WW.

    He's definitely EARNED a higher ranked fighter, but I think Kos wrestles him to a decision or maybe even takes his back for an RNC sub, then from there, if you look at relatively high ranked WWs, IMO Brown loses outright to Pierce, Maia, Stungun, Nelson, Story, Hathaway, Pyle, Nate, Kampmann, Rory, Jake, T-Wood and has alot of close fights with guys on the periphery who have a more duller, safer style....

    If I'm looking to give Brown fights that will complement his style and won't have him laying on his back for 15 or getting subbed, I'd look to guys like Lawler, Alves, Amagov, Cote or Siyar as the fights to make for him, as they're exciting match ups that will give Brown the style of fight that will be FOTN candidates.

    With the way Martin fights I think Matt can take him. I agree though I honestly hold out little hope of him making it to a title shot. Regardless from a respect standpoint he has fully earned the right to take on some top competition.
