Dana White Talks About Mike Brown Surprise KO Loss

In what came as a surprise during the WEC 48, former featherweight champ Mike Brown suffered a first round loss to Manny Gamburyan that took the wind of out of hopes of getting back at the title but Dana White explains some underlying causes that may have played a role in the poor performance:

“I hate talking about this kind of stuff because I don't like taking anything away from Manny Gamburyan who went in there and knocked him out tonight and looked great doing it. But before the fight started, I was sitting next to Jake Shields and Mark DellaGrotte and both guys said to me '(Brown) might lose tonight.' He's got a lot of personal problems, his girlfriend broke up with him, he skipped camp for like 14 days. He's got some personal problems that he's dealing with right now and this isn't basketball or baseball where you lose and say 'Ah, we still got 130 games left so it's all good.' In fighting you're only as good as your last fight and you have to be physically, mentally and emotionally ready every time you go in there and I don't think that was the case with him tonight. I think he's one of the best in the world, I think he's got some personal problems right now but I'm sure he'll be back as soon as he sorts them out.”Props: Versus
