Matt Brown would love to share the cage with the Diaz brothers.
If Demian Maia isn’t available, UFC veteran Matt Brown says it would be an honor to share the Octagon with either Nick or Nate Diaz following ‘The Immortal’s’ brutal face-plant KO of Dhiego Lima at UFC on Vegas 29.
Brown, 40, respects both the Diaz brothers and says a fight with either man would be guaranteed fireworks.
“I love the Diaz brothers, and of course it would be a big fight,” Brown said at the post-fight news conference (via MMA Junkie). “That’s one of them fights like, if I took it, it wouldn’t be because I dislike the Diazes or anything. I would take it because it’s a big fight and I respect them.”
Brown, though, isn’t too fussed about his next opponent and says his No. 1 priority is just to continue fighting and putting on great performances for the fans.
“I love fighting – that’s all there is to it,” Brown added. “I just love fighting. It’s just getting a camp together and putting all the pieces of the puzzle together. That just takes more time, so that’s what determines when I’m able to fight, not as much my desire – because my desire is there.
“I want to come in and do that to a lot of people, what I did tonight.”
Brown is 3-2 in his last five fights and holds standout victories over Diego Sanchez and Stephen Thompson. He is considered by many pundits to be one of the most entertaining fighters in the UFC welterweight division.
