Drops decision to Carlos Condit
WelterweightUFC
January 16, 2021
Brown lost to Carlos Condit via unanimous decision (27-30, 27-30, 27-30) at UFC on ABC 1 on Saturday in Abu Dhabi.
ANALYSIS
The fact Brown didn't earn a single round from any of the three judges is strange considering he appeared to be the much more effective man for the first frame. Unfortunately for "The Immortal" one, he couldn't keep it up over the course of the final ten minutes. With seemingly little separating the two men from a physical perspective, Condit did an excellent job of limiting Brown's ability to string together combinations. Brown turned 40 years of age last week and the days of him generating a ton of offense in short order are long over. Brown by no means embarrassed himself here, but he is now 3-7 in his past ten bouts dating back to July 2014 and has openly spoken about retirement in the past. The UFC needs to be extremely careful about who they match Brown up against if it decides to run him back out there again.

Set to face Carlos Condit

Brown will face Carlos Condit on Jan. 30, Damon Martin of MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
The matchup features a pair of fighters who have done quite a bit of losing lately. Brown has lost six of his last nine fights, most recently falling via TKO against Miguel Baeza in May. Condit has lost eight of his last 11, though he rebounded from a five-fight losing streak to defeat Court McGee by unanimous decision in October.
Can't close show in Jacksonville
WelterweightUFC
May 16, 2020
Brown lost to Miguel Baeza via KO (punches) at 0:18 of Round 2 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Jacksonville.
ANALYSIS
Brown is going to be kicking himself after this one. Following a slow start, "The Immortal" one appeared to have Baeza all but finished in the middle portion of Round 1 following a couple of monster shots, but he was unable to close the deal and Brown was eventually knocked out himself. Baeza began pouring it on late in the opening frame, and Brown was officially done just moments into Round 2. It was a fight the 39-year-old simply could not allow to slip through his fingers. You could argue Brown looked halfway decent given Baeza's youth and athleticism edge, but that will be no comfort to the 39-year-old. Firmly entrenched in "gatekeeper" status, Brown is 3-6 in his past nine fights. He had talked about "retiring" in the past but it never stuck. We'll see if those conversations pop up once again moving forward.
