Matt Brown and Carlos Condit have been booked to fight each other multiple times, but unfortunately, the matchup never came to fruition. The two were initially set to clash at UFC on FOX 9, and then at UFC on FOX 29, both bookings eventually falling through.

Now, Brown is set to end a two-year layoff and return to the Octagon against Ben Saunders at UFC 245 this December. Then, Condit will fight Mickey Gall at UFC on ESPN 7 in Washington. Speaking to MMA Fighting, Brown discussed why the UFC didn’t match up he and Condit one more time to try and make the scrap finally happen.

“I have no idea,” Brown said. “You’d know better than me. I actually don’t know. All I did was reply yes to an email from (UFC matchmaker) Sean Shelby, and I didn’t even look at who the opponent was. I saw, ‘Do you want to fight?’ That was in the subject line, and I just said yes.”

Of course, the matchup isn’t impossible, and can still happen at some point down the line. Brown says things will have to be reassessed after their respective fights at the end of the year, and perhaps the matchup can finally go down in 2020.

“Of course (I’m interested),” Brown said. “I think me and Carlos we’ve been right here the whole time, and I think we’re in a little bit of different spots now. It certainly would have been better a few years ago. It seems like I get hurt every time we’re supposed to fight, but we’ll kind of see where he’s at after he fights Mickey.

“We’ll see where Mickey’s at, we’ll see where Carlos is at, we’ll see where I’m at and everybody. We’re all in our own piece of the division right now. There’s a whole other part of the division that we need to be focused on. The fights between all of us are fun fights that are kind of building towards something bigger. We’ll have a lot figured out around the December time frame.

“Hopefully everybody gets some money and all of our kids can have a good Christmas and have a Happy New Year, get back to training and bust each other’s noses up next year.”

What do you think about a potential fight between Brown and Condit?

Matt Brown Ends Two-Year Layoff, Will Return At UFC 245

“The Immortal” Matt Brown is back. The longtime UFC veteran will end a two-year layoff to fight at UFC 245 on pay-per-view (PPV).

“The Immortal” Matt Brown is back. The longtime UFC veteran will end a two-year layoff to fight at UFC 245 on pay-per-view (PPV).

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported this weekend that Brown is set to take on Ben Saunders at the December show. UFC 245 takes place from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on December 14. Already scheduled for the card is a women’s featherweight title clash between Amanda Nunes and Germaine de Randamie.

The 38-year-old Brown last competed back in November of 2017. He knocked out Diego Sanchez at UFC Norfolk with an elbow in the third round. The victory ended a three-fight losing streak in which Brown was finished in each of those defeats. Now, Brown hopes to pick up his first win streak since 2014.

He’ll take on Saunders, a man in desperate need of a victory as he currently rides a three-fight losing streak in which he has been finished in each of those contests. His last outing resulted in a second-round TKO loss to Takashi Sato in April from Florida. A win over a legendary name like Brown would be quite the confidence booster for the 36-year-old veteran.

What do you think about Brown making his return at UFC 245 after two years?

Matt Brown Wants To Come Back & Kick Mike Perry’s A**

Having been sidelined all of 2018, Matt Brown is planning an MMA return later this year. And Mike Perry would be an ideal opponent.

Having been sidelined all of 2018, Matt Brown is planning an MMA return later this year. And Mike Perry would be an ideal opponent.

Brown, who is still recovering from knee and ankle injuries, hasn’t competed since beating Diego Sanchez back in November of 2017. He was scheduled to face Carlos Condit in 2018; however, his injuries did the fight in. An avid fight fan, Brown keeps his eye on the prize and perhaps, more importantly, he scouts his competition from the sidelines. One fighter that has caught Brown’s attention is the hard-hitting Perry.

Earlier this month Brown and Perry engaged in some back and forth on social media. Both fighters seem to like the idea of fighting one another. Brown still holds that same sentiment.

“I think fans would get behind that fight,” Brown told reporters backstage at Bellator 214 (h/t MMAJunkie). “I think it would be a good fight for me to come back to and a good fight for him to get his ass kicked in.”

While “The Immortal” is gung-ho on the “Platinum” Perry match up, his potential opponent didn’t seem to excited at the prospect at a fight with Brown. Just last week Perry called for pay-per-view opponents; there is little doubt Perry wants the last fight on his current UFC contract to be a banger.

“I’ll shrug, too,” Brown said. “I think he’s a good fight for both of us.”

Watch all of Matt Brown’s interview below.

I think I can safely speak for most MMA fans when I say that a fight between Brown and Perry would be a good fight for the fans too.

Two of the most violent fighters in the UFC may be headed for a showdown later this year as Matt Brown has answered Mike Perry’s all-violence challenge.

Perry took to Twitter earlier today to ask his fellow welterweight fighters a question. “Platinum” is looking for a fight and he wants an opponent that is going to be equally exciting as him.

And wouldn’t you know it, “The Immortal” answered Perry’s tweet with on of his own.

A fight between Brown and Perry would be nothing short of a good old fashioned slobberknocker. Both men are fan-favorite fighters because of the level of intensity and violence that each man brings to the Octagon.

Brown (21-16) got back on track with an absolutely brutal knock out of Diego Sanchez in his last outing. That, however, was in November of 2017. “The Immortal” sat out all of 2018 dealing with injuries and the like.

As for Perry (12-4), the “Platinum” one has lost three of his last four fights. His lone win in that stretch was a split decision nod over Paul Felder at UFC 226. Perry was most recently submitted by Donald Cerrone.
