- Matt Brown spoke about tomorrow's fight at UFC Fight Night 40 with Erick Silva. Here are the highlights…
On Being the Underdog: "There's no way I can ignore it, because I've been asked the question 800 times. But it doesn't make any sense at all, even looking at it not from a biased perspective. Maybe (the oddsmakers) know something I don't."
On Facing a Fighter With a Lot of Hype: "I'm no stranger to fighting the hype trains; it's not my first one," Brown said. "And every time, I'm an underdog. But hype doesn't win fights. All that does is put more pressure on him. He has to realize all this hype is not necessarily good for him and not necessarily true, that he's got to put in the work. If he put in the work, he's an extremely dangerous guy."
On His Frame of Mind Going Into The Fight: "The run that I've been on means nothing right now," he said. "Sunday morning, I could be on a seven-fight winning streak or a one-fight losing streak. I'm not looking in the past at all. I'm not looking at what I've already done."
