I'll take Brown but I wonder how long he has it in him for this.

Easy win for Brown. Corassani is pretty awful.

Brown's fall from grace was pretty bad, and he didn't even really get moving until he was older to begin with. I wouldn't mind seeing him get some wins, but unless this is real impressive I don't see the point anymore.

I don't know where the idea came from in the last few years that once a fighter is old enough that they are unlikely to have a belt again that its time to retire. There is absolutely a place in the sport for fighters like Brown, Penn, Mir, etc.

I'd much rather see them fight than someone who's equally likely to win but for reasons of lack of skill rather than age.
