| Wow. There’s really not much to say about this fight except…wow.

Matt Brown entered this fight riding a 5 fight winning streak inside the UFC octagon. That alone is a very tough feat. Many people were saying that he was already worthy of being considered a title contender, but for some reason he just wasn’t getting the credit he really deserves. Well, after this one he is definitely going to be in the title talks.

All it took was 29 seconds for Matt Brown to put a stamp on his 6th consecutive victory and he is definitely riding a lot of steam in the welterweight division after this one.

The fight opened with Matt Brown landing a big leg kick, pressing the action, getting Pyle to back up. Brown then lunged in and missed with a right but then connected with the left hand as Pyle was moving backward and followed with a knee that dropped Pyle to the canvas. From there, Pyle could not recover as Brown hovered over him and landed three solid strikes that put his lights out.

Matt Brown walks away with a nice paycheck, a 6th consecutive win, and the recognition that he has deserved for some time now. This fight will likely be considered for Knockout of the Night and Brown will likely draw a top 5 opponent in the UFC welterweight division following this 29 second victory.
