Matt Brown Admits To Using His Face To Defend Silva’s Body Shots

“After the first body shot I was actually thankful that he was punching my face. I was leaving my face open to get punched so that my body could recover. Which was a risk/reward thing and you only have a split second to think about it. And I know that if I get hit in the body again it could very potentially be over, so it was like, just hit me anywhere except for there. So I curled up, I grabbed his leg, and just hoped that he punched me in the face, and fortunately he went for a submission before destroying my face.”

While a guest on today’s ‘The MMA Hour’, Matt Brown discussed his strategy in Saturday’s fight against Silva after being buckled by brutal kicks to the body.  (Replay HERE)
