The "Big Dog" returns at UFC 111 and takes on Matt Brown in his first fight at welterweight!

Considering the Cote/Almeida fight, I'd say Brown takes this...but unlike Cote, I think he'll finish it.

i have to agree. Brown just gets better every single fight.

Great fight I think Ricardo will get the unanimous decision in this one but if Brown wins I wont be surprised one bit he gets so much better every single time we see him in action!

Matt Brown has improved a lot and he's arguably 5-0 in the UFC. I've been most impressed with his submission defense. This is Ricardo's first cut down to 170 and I dont feel confident picking people who cut a sizeable amount of weight for the first time. Matt Brown's a guy who's not gonna stop, not gonna give up anywhere, who wont fall into the game Cote did (like mentioned above). Right away I'm liking Brown to get a knockout in any round, because Brown is always game and dangerous. I almost wanna say Almeida has to submit him to stop Brown from stomping him since Brown dosnt quit coming forward and is always in the fight.

I think Ricardo can put Brown on his back and sub him, probably only in the 1st round tho, if it doesn't happen in the 1st...I like Brown by TKO in the later rounds b/c Almeida will probably gas.

curious to see how almeida looks after making the cut
see if his gas tank will hold but if he falters like he did against cote brown will swarm in for the kill in the 3rd

Going with Brown in this one

I agree with the consensus, if there isn't a 1st round sub by Ricardo (whose BJJ is awesome) then Matt will probably get a late TKO via the cut destroying Ricardo's endurance. I wouldn't be so quick to chose sides on this fight yet though. Matt has been very prone to the sub in the past, and I don't think he has shown sub defense yet to avoid a guy like Almeida. However Almeida isn't too well known for finishing guys either.
