Coming off of yet another exciting performance, defeating Ultimate Fighter winner James Wilks, Ultimate Fighter alumnus Matt "The Immortal" Brown is looking to take a little down time for the holidays and then would like to return to fight a legend in his next fight.

The Ohio native and recent transplant to Seattle, Wash., is heading home to spend time with the family first, and then head back to camp for his next fight.

I have a strange admiration for Matt Brown. He's pretty much always the underdog, comes in under the radar and then completely ruins peoples nights.
He's got legit skills and if he's calling for this fight he must be confident he can win.
If I was Joe Silva I'd make this in a instant. Browns always exciting and Renzo could do with a welcome fight.
WAR MATT!!

I feel the same way. I admire him as well for coming in and just mauling people. He comes across to me as a tough, blue collar guy who could be the subject of Chuck Norris type jokes.

On a high school math test, Matt Brown put down "Violence" as every one of his answers. He received an A+ 100 on the test because Matt Brown solves all his problems with violence.

I'm a fan of Matt Brown as well but I don't understand calling out Renzo Gracie. The guy isn't relevant in the UFC title picture. Matt should be going after contenders, not name opponents that are past their prime.

I like Brown as well but this is some weak ****. Call out someone who is considered a legitimate contender. Who's next, Bob Gilstrap?

Renzo is a big name and Brown is looking to establish himself with the casual fan. It makes perfect sense to call him out. Its no different than Alves fighting Hughes, Alves was known but not a huge name, he beat Hughes who was and then he was then next big thing.
Brown is going after a popular name to casual fans will start to respond to him.

Renzo is a huge name and completely legit.
Though he does not fight that often anymore the man is still a huge threat because of his amazing BJJ and arguably the most well rounded fighter with the last name of Gracie.

On a side note Brown is growing on me.The dude is tough as nails and his skillset is letting him grow into a very well rounded fighter.

Have you ever stopped to think that maybe he just wants a tough fight and doesn't give a **** if it's against a contender or not?

The only thing weak is the fact that you and numerous other people put so much stock into where so-and-so is in the title hunt and who they should fight to move up the ladder for a title or how many fights away from a title shot someone is.

Maybe he sees something in Renzo's game that he considers a challenge? Maybe he's moving up his own ladder and accomplishing his own goals, not yours.

To say someone who's a 5th degree blackbelt in BJJ isn't legitimate is laughable.

Jeez.

You can say that again. Renzo is one of the best BJJ practitioners in the world right now. I don't know how anyone could think this would be an easy opponent.

Renzo was doing BJJ when BJ was in his father's nutsack.

Matt Brown has been growing on me. Tough dude, great attitude. If he does fight Renzo he has to quit giving up his back and getting in bad sub spots. Will be cheering for another Immortal KO!
