Matt Brown: ‘I can outwrestle GSP’


Riding high on a six-fight win streak, Ultimate Fighter veteran, Matt Brown is ready for a bigger test.

If his 29-second destruction of Mike Pyle last Saturday didn’t put a stamp on his dominance and earn him a shot at the title, it most certainly should earn him a top five opponent.

Matt recently talked to MMAJunkie Radio and during that interview made this astonishing proclamation:

“I know where my wrestling stands. It’s simply a matter of executing those abilities in the ring with ‘GSP.’ I can outwrestle him. I’m calling it right now.

“It sounds f—ing ridiculous, and everybody is going to laugh at me, and I know the forums, everybody’s going to talk about how I’m delusional and this and that. … I know where I’m at.”

“I don’t think [St-Pierre has] ever fought anybody that can put the kind of pressure that I put on him, and I think I can stop his takedowns,” Brown said. “His best chance is to get a takedown. People haven’t seen my wrestling. I’m training with the best wrestlers in the world right now, and I’m getting pretty damn good at it.”

  1. Gargoyle Wrestling says:

    A+ for trying to get a fight with the champ and a great payday. He’s 3 or 4 top 10 wrestler’s away from that goal. Needs to enroll in the Sonnen school of fight making if he wants one before that.

    • Samson says:

      He faces high level wrestlers everyday in Ohio State’s wrestling room. Not saying he would beat GSP, but he faces tougher wrestlers every day.

    • Nate "THE ROID CHEAT" Marquardt says:

      One thing is for sure Matt Brown is a real fighter who always comes to fight which is more than ANYONE can say about Goerges “SAFE” Pierre.

      I would pay $100 to watch Matt Brown fight before I would pay a nickel to watch GSP fight.

      Still believe GSP/TRISTAR has it all planned out to have GSP drop out of Hendricks fight a week out as GSP did before when he wasn’t injured. Then we will all find out the UFC/Tristar has had ROIDY training for Hendricks the entire time in case GSP got injured. At least that’s what their excuse will be.

      I pray I’m wrong because its long past time for a REAL fighter that actually wants to fight is the UFC WW champ. GSP has been milking it for years. ONLY reason GSP still in MMA is for sponsor money he is receiving. After every fight GSP looks like he is beat half to death and his opponent barely looks like they have been in a fight.

      • squid says:

        i agree with you on matt brown being a real fighter. i love that mentality he brings to the cage. some of ur other shit just seems too much tho lol

  2. doc says:

    He should call in Ben Askren and Matt Hughes.

    Man would he be lucky as fuck if he could get the likes of Sonnen to work his wrestling out.

    I do like this guy more every time he fights.

  3. 757 says:

    Easy there Matt Brown. I like you as a fighter but out wrestling GSP isn’t going to happen and not the plan you want to employ against that guy. C’mon brother keep your head on straight.

  4. James says:

    Matt Brown vs Nick Diaz. Far more exciting than watching Lyoto run away from Diaz for a 3 round decision.

  5. Dude says:

    I wouldn’t even be worrying about gsp, I honestly believe his days as champ are numbered. Hendricks will be the best thing that could happens to the ww strap, as long as he continues to finish his opponents and not play it safe when he becomes champ. And fuck Fitch

  6. Dude says:

    I agree with James, nick Diaz match would be a war!! Also I kinda hope when gsp loses they out him up against a newly signed Ben askren!

    • squid says:

      yeah diaz v. brown. can somebody say fireworks? askren can outwrestle gap all day but gsp will just stay outside and jab him to death

  7. 757 says:

    Nick vs. Brown for sure! I agree

  8. d-rak says:

    Gsp will destroy matt Brown in a wrestling match or the cage
