“I think he’d be scared to get close enough to hit me because I’m not going to avoid anything he throws. I’m going to step right in the pocket and throw down. He’s not going to have any option but to be on the feet with me. Even if he has the skills to stand, he would not be able to handle my pressure, tenacity and desire to win. I think I’m one of the worst match ups for GSP.
Everyone thinks I’m delusional and crazy for thinking that, but I know who I am. If I go in there the best I can be, I know I’d destroy GSP. When I come in against GSP, I’m going in to take the belt from him, I’m not going to play around with the world title on the line. I’m 110% confident, if I show up at my best, he does not stand a chance in hell against me. This match up with Thiago is a far tougher match up for me than GSP.”
Matt Brown has had a huge resurgence in his career ever since the UFC started putting him in the spotlight on FOX TV. Anymore, a FOX fight without Matt Brown on the card isn’t really a FOX fight.
The Columbus, Ohio native is apparently feeling that shift in popularity and as such, has taken to The Bleacher Report to call out the big dog in his weight class, Mr. GSP.
