Matt Brown is currently riding an impressive five fight win streak coming into his UFC on FOX Sports 1 bout with Thiago Alves. Alves, a former number one contender, will certainly be his stiffest fight to date, however Brown is already thinking about a title shot and is confident he can defeat the curretn champion Georges St-Pierre:
"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."
