Matt Brown Discusses How Fatherhood Has Changed Him
Posted by Larry Csonka on 12.03.2012



- Matt Brown recently spoke about how fatherhood changed him as a fighter. Here are the highlights…

On Being a Fighter and a Father: "The first couple of days, it's cool because you're like, 'Man, I finally get some sleep. not hearing screaming all day, and I can come home and relax and not have kids smacking you in the face. But after a couple of days, you start missing that. You're bored. You're like, 'Where are my kids to smack me in the face?'"

On How Fatherhood Changes a Man: "It's actually been proven in studies that your testosterone drops once you have kids," he said. "You basically become more womanly and more nurturing and whatnot. I'm more womanly than I was before, which is not very womanly."

On The Pressure of Providing For His Kids: "Now, I've come full circle, and I've realized I'm going to feed my kids no matter what," he said. "Whether I win this fight or lose this fight, whether I never win another fight, I'm going to take care of my kids. So I don't put that pressure on myself any more. Rather I use them being in my life as an inspiration, I want to inspire them to do great things. It's not like I have to do it for them, but I want to so I can teach them work ethic and show them the great things you can do and all the clichéd words."
