Nearly an hour after dropping his WEC featherweight title to new champion Jose Aldo (16-1 MMA, 6-0 WEC), Mike Brown (22-5 MMA, 4-1 WEC) still seemed to be processing what had happened.

Nevertheless, Brown took his turn in front of the media at Saturday night's WEC 44 post-event press conference and tried to figure out what went wrong.

"I should have opened up more," Brown told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). "I think I was too conservative. Maybe more takedown attempts. I really have to see the tape."

Brown was halted in the second frame of a five-round affair at The Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. The loss was Brown's first in nearly four years, and the former champ had nothing but good things to say about the man that beat him.

"[Aldo] is a fast, good striker," Brown said. "He hit me with some pretty good shots. His takedown defense was good.

"I was a little weary to shoot double-legs on him because I know his knees are really good. Maybe I could have tried to mix it up and try that. I was trying to throw a shot, clinch and push him against the cage and take him down. It wasn't really working. He had good balance."

Since the announcement of this fight I was feeling Aldo, a friend convinced me to pick Brown.... I shall never forgive him for that.

If Faber wins over Assuncao I wonder if they'll force Aldo/Faber right away.
