Tonight, on FOX Sports 1’s ‘UFC Tonight’ Saturday’s headliner, Matt ‘The Imortal’ Brown discussed his role as underdog this weekend against Erick Silva and what he thinks about the fight.
Matt Brown on if Erick Silva deserves to fight him in the main card: “Absolutely, he puts on some exciting fights and brings a lot to the table. He’s really athletic. He can finish guys in crazy fashions. It’s going make for an exciting fight.”
Brown on if he’s been lucky on his six-fight win streak: “There ain’t no luck in this sport. You know how hard I’ve worked to make my right hand work? Plus, I started wrestling in these past years. I never did in my life. Not only does it help you with your confidence with the takedown, and my foundation, my base and my overall strength has improved with working with these wrestlers.”
Brown on what his secret has been during the win streak: “There’s no secret. I stayed on the grind. I kept working hard every day. I stayed in the gym. I didn’t let it get me down. I didn’t let it slow me down. I stayed true to who I am. If you work hard enough, the good things are going to happen to you, whether it’s success in the Octagon or out of it.”Tags: erick silva, Fight Night 40, Matt brown, Matt Brown vs. Erick Silva, mma, MMA NEWS, ufc, ufc fight night 40, ufc news
