UFC welterweight Matt Brown is very confident that he could beat George St. Pierre. He even says that Thiago Alves is a tougher matchup for him than GSP.

Did he drink a cup of stupid this morning?! Did I miss something? GSP not able to wrestle with him?! GSP afraid of striking with him?! Am I fucked up right now or is this just flat out ridiculous?!

I think afraid to strike with him is a reasonable enough statement. GSP has seemed reluctant to strike with any one who is a decently talented striker. IMO Diaz won almost every single second of the fight he had with GSP when they were on their feet. GSP seems to not want to do more than jab people repeatedly from the outside when he strikes. That's not to say he is legitimately scared of striking with people, but it does certainly appear that way. Now afraid to wrestle with him on the other hand, is completely ridiculous. I don't think GSP is afraid to wrestle with anyone, except maybe people significantly larger than him like Cain Velasquez.

Edit: I know a lot of us are going to be questioning him for saying what he said, but at the very least you have to admit that he has the right mentality. In my opinion you have to enter each fight with the mindset of "I'm better than this guy. I can win this fight". If you don't have confidence in your abilities why even fight?

this is coming from a guy whos been submitted more times than Chael Sonnen and Bob Sapp??? A guy who lost to Seth Baczynski and Brian Foster yet expects to beat GSP?

Brown better stop thinking about GSP, He has Alves to deal with. I hope Alves is focused and we get a epic clash.

Love Matt Brown but he sure is confident.
Fortunately I love Thiago Alves more and I hope he knocks his confidence down a couple notches

Props to him for the confidence. One of the reasons I like him.

No I say let Hendricks get his shot. Hendricks has a few nice Ko wins, Kampmann and Fitch come mind. He's also has had some close Decisions, even split decisions. Koscheck's fight was close, Mike Pierce fight was close. And Condit probably would have beat Hendricks IMO if the fight was a 5 rounder. GSP has been criticized for his safe fights. But when the fights are over there's no controversy on who just won the fight , unlike Hendricks he's been in multiple controversial fights.

But back to Matt Brown, he isn't even close to a title shot with GSP.

Brown has beaten better competition, has better wrestling and looks cooler IMO and I have his poster hanging over my bed. If Hendricks doesn't get skipped over again I'm going to be super pissed.
