Matt Brown: Sounds crazy, but I can beat GSP

 

“Same old GSP, he does the same thing to everybody,” offered Brown. “They all know what he is going to do, but they still can’t stop it. I think I can do what he does better and totally stifle his game. I know that sounds kind of crazy especially considering most of my losses have been by submission and I’m not a big credentialed wrestler. I understand that people will laugh when I say that, but it doesn’t bother me, I train with higher level wrestlers than he trains with. I’m honest with myself and I know where I’m at and I know what I can accomplish. I know that I can get there and I can beat him.”

“For me it’s not just about confidence, I truly know it. I can tell you right now, GSP can’t strike with me. When it comes down to it, he’s going to take you down, maybe punch you a couple of times and keep you down there. When guys like Matt Hughes or Josh Koscheck weren’t able to stop that, then Matt Brown comes along and says he’s going to stop his takedowns, it sounds kind of crazy. It’s just a matter of me performing at the best of my abilities. If I do that I’ll end up beating him

Fuck you guys are like vultures. He's just being confident in himself. He has the right attitude. All you kids wanna jump all over him saying he's retarted.

I have no problem doing it.  The difference will be on the feet when Jordan's body punching takes over.  Brown may have triumphed over some overly hyped, but untested guys like Wonderboy, or KOed Swick who has 1 win in 3 years and counting,but at 35 pro fights, racking more and more wins over legit and proven competition, Mein is extremely seasoned and tested for a 23 year old.  I really just don't see any advantage Brown will have in this fight.

By all means I think Mein is a future contender himself, saying the kid is talented is an understatement. But I've been burned by picking guys over Brown in the past so I'm done doing it.

Forget GSP.   You think he's a guarantee over Jordan Mein?  Mein is going to stop him.  Body shots to a TKO stoppage.

Brown is a fucking warrior and a great underdog story. I never pick the guy to win and he's made me look silly lately.All of you guys who think he has no chance are assuming GSP will make sweet, tender love to him for 25 minutes right?
