Fellow welterweight Mike Perry has recently mentioned Brown in some social media posts and Brown thinks a battle between the two would be a good one.
“I just seen his post and it caught my eye, I think he’s a good fight for both of us. I think fans would get behind that fight, I think it’d be a good fight for me to come back to. A good fight for him to get his ass kicked in…I guess,” says Brown in a media scrum at Bellator 214 in which Fightful’s James Lynch was a part of.
Brown had stated that retirement has been an option in the past, but mentioned during the scrum that he may compete again once an injured ankle heals up.
It was recently revealed that a long term metabolite was found in UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones’ weigh-in day VADA drug test and Brown isn’t happy about the whole situation.
“I tweeted out that it was very disgusting to me, the way that went down. Apparently he tested positive again…right, or we have another positive test. It’s just f*cking terrible man, I just can’t understand why…if they’re gonna let him do it, them let him do it…right. Why not, just let us all do steroids. People are just going to do it, otherwise ban the son of a bitches. Either you can do it or you can’t why are we in this gray area? I think it’s garbage, but I love the UFC to death man and I have respect for every single one of those guys. I think it was a poor decision at that point, I mean there have been almost 30 years of the UFC now and you’re gonna make some bad decisions…right? I think that was a bad decision and I think it is a lack of integrity, I just want to see the sport grow with integrity. It should be about the martial arts, it should be about the best competing against the best. Things like that, it just takes away from it and it really makes me sad because I want to see our sport grow with integrity and organically. That’s what it is, they gotta make some money. Who am I to say anything,” says Brown to Lynch.
Jones is scheduled to defend the title against Anthony Smith at UFC 235, pending approval from the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC).
