This will end just like the last one did for Cope.

...and not a whole lot faster than Cope's UFC career which will likely come to an end shortly thereafter...

I see this fight looking a lot like Brown's fight with Pete Sell. Matt Brown is just way ahead of this guy.

I'm amazed that Brown wasn't cut after his last fight. 4 losses in 5 fights and he's still in the UFC, I can't think of too many fighters who would still be around with a record like that and a ranking like his. If you're fighting guys in the top 10 it could be understandable, but losing to guys like Baczynski and Foster usually you're gone after 2 maybe 3 losses at most.

I guess he is pretty much guaranteed to put on an exciting fight so maybe that's why he gets more leeway.

Yep. I'd rather see him fight, than an Elliot Marshall fight.
