Brown 'unretires' to meet Corassani at UFC on FOX Sports 1


Less than a year ago, Mike Brown announced his retirement after a win over Daniel Pineda at UFC 146. It's not often that fighters allow themselves to retire on a win and Mike Brown had been fighting professionally for a decade when he decided to leave the sport behind on a two fight win streak. However, it looks as though the lure of fighting close to his home state of Maine was too enticing and Brown will be making his return to the Octagon:

After briefly considering retirement in 2012, Mike Brown (26-8 MMA, 2-3 UFC) is ready to get back to action. The former WEC featherweight champion meets Akira Corassani (11-3-1 MMA, 2-0 UFC) at UFC on FOX Sports 1 1.

UFC officials today announced the new booking.

UFC on FOX Sports 1 1, takes place Aug. 17 at TD Garden in Boston and will mark the promotion's debut on the new cable network, which launches the same day. The evening's headlining bout has yet to be announced.

I was really hoping they gave Akira the person he asked for in Conor McGregor. Would have loved to see that. It's still early, but Conor looked fantastic last fight.

Good to see Mike fighting again. Corasini will be a tough test.
