Despite Matt Brown's big win...
Dana White and Matt Brown spoke last night about Brown's knockout of Mike Pyle at UFC Fight Night 26 and more. Check out the highlights:
White on Rory MacDonald vs. Robbie Lawler still being likely despite Brown's big win: "We like that fight. I think so, yeah, (it's happening)."
Brown on Pyle: "Mike really is one of the best fighters in the world, he just doesn't always put it together in the ring. I just came in to whoop his ass. I knew it was going to be me or him. Hopefully it put me somewhere in a good position to get some big fights. I know in this sport you get what you earn not what you deserve, hopefully I earned something good here."
White on Brown's performance: "[Brown] came out tonight and made quick work of a guy a lot of people respect, a tough durable guy. I think tonight's fight put him in a position to possibly get a spot in the top-10 and fight one of the guys in the top-10."
White on whether Brown will rise enough in the rankings to get a title shot: "You guys are going to be voting tomorrow. Don't throw [St-Pierre vs. Brown] at me."
Brown on who he wants to face next: "I'll fight whoever they want me to, man...I'm only in this sport for one thing, and that's to beat GSP's ass."
