‘F**King Judges’- Matt Brown Not Happy With Judging in Fight Against Carlos Condit

Published 01/17/2021, 12:01 PM EST


Matt ‘The Immortal’ Brown lost a unanimous decision in a welterweight clash against fellow legend Carlos Condit, in the co-main event of UFC Fight Night: Holloway vs Kattar. Matt Brown took Condit down to the ground in the first round of the fight and controlled him there. But eventually, he lost all three rounds in every scorecard, which was a bit unfair on Brown’s part.

Brown was clearly unhappy even when the result was being announced. He later took to Twitter to express his discontent with the decision. He didn’t hold back and used some expletive words on the judges.

Brown claimed rightfully that he won the first round as he controlled ‘The Natural Born Killer’ for a considerable amount of time on the mat. He also acknowledges that Condit actually won the second round. The third round was back and forth, and Condit edged it on the judges’ scorecards. But it was a bit harsh on ‘The Immortal’ to not even get at least one round in the books.

Condit is on a winning streak for the first time since 2012 now. He broke a 5-fight losing skid against Court McGee in his last outing to the Octagon. Since defeating Nick Diaz at UFC 143, Condit has won only 4 of his next 12 bouts. But the 36-years-0ld former WEC champion has started to look like his former self again, recently.

What’s next for Matt Brown?

Brown is on a 2-fight skid currently. He lost against Miguel Baeza by knockout in his 2020. He knocked out Diego Sanchez and Ben Saunders respectively before that. After Robbie Lawler snapped his 7-fight winning streak in 2014, Brown has won only 3 of his next 10 fights.

At 40, he is clearly not in his prime. So, he needs to take some time off and seriously consider his future inside the Octagon. He is not on the level of the cream of the crop fighters of the welterweight division anymore. But he has certainly proven that he can still hang in there with fellow legends like Condit.
