STFU Matt Brown. You've been looking great lately. Don't go ruining it by making yourself look retarded with comments like these.

what I'm getting at is why are we applauding and cheering Brown for this while calling guys like Hardy, Diaz, etc stupid idiots who should shut their mouth because they have no chance by saying the same thing?

I think only Canadians called the stupid idiots for saying that.

Diaz though, well hes kind of earned a reputation you see.
-------------

I will say though that Gsp has been staggered or stunned in the two fights hes had against opponents with similar arm length, and he has to work harder to get takedowns against opponents who dont have to close the gap to land.

So in that sense, stylistically i dont think Matt is too far off the mark here. And its not like GSP is going to submit anyone ever.

There's a difference between being confident and coming right out and saying "I know I'd destroy GSP". That's two completely different things. I'm all for confidence, but why would Matt Brown of all people come out and say he'd destroy GSP?

It just makes him look stupid IMHO. He has no business even speaking of GSP at this point.

It's funny to see everyone piling on a guy for being confident in his abilities.

Silly.

And you're not biased at all, right?

What does being biased have to do with anything?

Plenty of people think it's ridiculous that Matt Brown would make a claim like this. Being a fan of GSP doesn't effect that opinion.

The bottom line is, confidence or not, everyone knows GSP would eat him alive. You know that.

Of course the guy has to be confident, but he's not going into a fight with GSP right now, so why mention his name? He's not even close to that yet. He had great wins over Mike Swick and Jordan Mein in his last two fights, but he's still at the very least a few fights away from a title shot. To earn a title shot he'll have to beat tougher competition than he's been facing, like Jake Ellenburger or Rory or somebody, and it won't happen.

Like I said, good for him to have some confidence, but it just seems kind of dumb to come out and say something like this. He's just making himself look stupid because everyone knows he's wrong.
