"I would rather beat GSP (as opposed to Hendricks) since he's probably going to be a hall-of-famer, a living legend: I want to beat the legend. GSP would not stand with me and would definitely look to take me down, but my wrestling is on a completely different level from what people have seen from me. I've been training with the Ohio ROTC wrestling team (in Columbus, Ohio) for years now, guys with Olympic aspirations, the best wrestling team in America. I don't think GSP can wrestle as well as any of those guys."

"The Immortal" not only believes he can negate St-Pierre's wrestling, but he also thinks the French-Canadian superstar would be fearful of his aggression and knockout power.

"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."

His only advantage going into this fight would be that his name is Matt, but other than that GSP is better everywehre.

"GSP won't stand with Nick DIaz since COndit ran!"

GSP stands with Diaz and pot shots him with Jabs, but Matt Brown is the one with the standup to worry GSP? C'mon man, I am fully a fan of the Immortal but can a guy just say "I'm confident I can do what is necessary to win" and not sell advanced Wolf Tickets before a legit top 10 win?

I don't think he is correct, but I would love it if he was.

His aggression would get him taken down over and over again. Matt's a fun fighter to watch, but I don't see this one playing out for him. Phone Post 3.0

I like Matt Brown, but what he says does not equal what he'll do or even try.

I remember him saying he was going to prove Muay Thai was better than Karate before his fight with Stephen Thompson and he'd make it a standup war. Instead, he proceeded to go for takedowns and wrestling. It was the best strategy for him to win but it's hard to take his word after that.

Matt Brown is a good fighter a real blue chip guy. GSP may be the greatest tactical fighter to ever live. Not saying be is the GOAT but he is great at different things than Anderson. Phone Post 3.0

I like Browns fights but I'm with everyone else here. No way he beats GSP. I do think however he makes a good fight out of it. He either gets picked apart on the feet, jabbed to death or taken down and has GSP on him for 5 rounds.

They are atleast legit #1 contenders, Matt Brown just beat Jordan Mein and will soon be leg kicked into Bolivia by Alves.

Apparently Matt thinks beating a short notice Jordan Mein makes you the best WW in the world.  Brown loses to majority of top 10 WW's.   Try beating Alves, Condit, Diaz, Hendricks, Macdonald, Ellenberger, Hendricks, Kos, Saffiedine, Lawler, etc.  If you don't have a win over any of the aforementioned fighters, it's insane to talk this kind of nonsense.

I'd also pick Mein to beat him in a rematch.  Definitely know Jordan Will be back in time and will be ready to avenge the Brown loss.

Brown would never get that fight, unless he began annihilating the likes of Maia and Condit, and even then it would be a slim chance. GSP wants the biggest payday (at WW, sans Silva) possible, and while I'd love to see Brown try, doesn't Georges only have a few fights left in him? Very small window for Brown. Phone Post 3.0

I wouldn't say Matt's got nothing for GSP, but I agree that he loses this fight.  His wrestling has looked much better in his recent fights, but I doubt it's anywhere near the level required to stop GSP.  I would love to proven wrong though as he's one of my favourite fighters to watch.

I want this fight to happen now just to see Brown's shit get pushed in.

There's believing in your self and then there is lunacy. Lunacy is this, and making these comments/thoughts public when you've yet to show 1/4 the skill set of someone like GSP. Oh and your record too, lets not forget that. I don't wanna hear you took fights under the wrong circumstances early on, almost all fighters have.

Yeah matt, you've gotten better. You're not at that level though and part of being efficient in my opinion, is being real with yourself. Phone Post 3.0
