Rory MacDonald is fighting is fighting Tyron Woodley next month, in a bout many believe will put the winner into a title shot. You have Robbie Lawler fighting Jake Ellenberger later this month in a bout that could serve as a title eliminator in it’s own-right.
And then there’s Matt Brown.
“The Immortal” carries the largest active welterweight winning streak and is close to the top on the UFC stoppage-record-list as well. After his dominant performance over Erick Silva last weekend (Replay HERE), many believe the Ohio resident is due his shot at the throne.
During the post-fight presser Brown touched on this prospect:
