The new WEC Featherweight Champ speaks.......
WEC Featherweight Champion Mike Brown recently sat down with MMAJunkie.com and discussed a possible rematch with Urijah Faber, when his first title defense may come, and more:
On his win over Faber at WEC 36:
"I'm thankful. I've been fighting a long time. I haven't really got the recognition I thought I really deserved. I finally got a little bit, so it's just kind of cool."
On the injury he suffered during the fight:
"I'm fine. I've already started running and things like that. I can't wrestle yet, but I'm fine as long as I'm not twisting real hard and using a lot of my ab muscles. But I can run, so I'm good."
On a possible rematch with Faber:
"I'm fine with [a rematch]. I don't mind fighting him again. I've also heard Leonard (Garcia) might be next. So either, or. I'm willing to fight either guy. They're both great. They both deserve a shot."
On when his first title defense will be:
"It's looking like March, they're saying. And what's cool is I think it's going to be back in Florida is what I'm hearing. So I'll take that any day. I love fighting at home."
