UFC 206 is taking place this Saturday Night and the co-main event of the evening will is a welterweight division tilt as Matt Brown takes on Donald Cerrone. Despite their comparable styles, Brown thinks he'll expose Cerrone.
"I didn't see him yesterday, but I'll give him the cold shoulder," Brown said at a UFC 206 media scrum "I've talked to him before, but that doesn't make him a friend. So, I don't care for him, I don't care for his personality. Even when I talked to him I didn't want to talk to him, I was just being cordial. I don't have any good feelings towards him at all. I don't like the way he acts, I don't like the way he carries himself, and I don't like the way he represents the sport. No it's just his personality, you can see the way he talks. He wants to be an alpha male and he really wants to portray himself as something special. I think it's all these yes men he's got around him, I think he's just being lied to by them telling him, 'Donald you're the champion man, you're so good, you're so great, you're going to be this and that.' Really he's just being lied to. It's my job to come in there and expose that truth out of him."
While Cerrone is a fan favorite of the fans who watch the UFC, Brown says there is just something he doesn’t like about the one-time lightweight title challenger.
"Most of my opponents I'm really respectful to, and I think they're respectful to me, but I take. I don't know if he means it or not, I don't know maybe he's just a douchebag of a person, but I get that feeling when he's talking to other people, especially other fighters, he feels like he's above other people," he said. "And he's kind of bully, you know what I mean? You watch his fights where he lost where he got bullied back, and he didn't like that. That's what I got to do to him. I just think his whole thing is based on lies. A lot of people fall into that, but I ain't falling into it."
UFC 206 takes place on Saturday, December 10 from the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada with Max Holloway and Anthony Pettis headlining.
