Set to face Alex Oliveira
December 21, 2020
Brown will take on Alex Oliveira in a welterweight matchup on Feb. 27, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA.nl reports.
Brown will be looking to bounce back from a second-round knockout loss to Vicente Luque in August, his only fight of 2020. He won both of his fights in 2021. Luque also followed up a two-fight winning streak with a loss in his last trip to the Octagon, getting submitted late in the first round by Shavkat Rakhmonov in October.
Finished by Silent Assasin
August 1, 2020
Brown lost to Vicente Luque via TKO (punches) at 4:56 of Round 2 at UFC on ESPN+ 31 on Saturday.
Brown had a tough time getting going early, as he was unable to check frequent calf kicks from Luque. To make matters worse, he ate a big right hand and was knocked down, but Luque didn't take advantage and eventually let Brown back to his feet. While Brown was able to return fire at times, it was a clear round for Luque. Brown kept giving Luque his best shots in the second, but Luque essentially walked through them. He also continued to take serious punishment to his left leg. With just two minutes remaining, Brown's best moment came when he connected with a spinning elbow, but Luque simply smiled it off. Brown even recorded a takedown in the final minute, but didn't take advantage of the position and let Luque back up shortly afterwards. In the fading moments of Round 2, Brown had his back against the cage and appeared to be reaching down (which would have made him "grounded"), but Luque beat him to it with a vicious knee. It was clearly legal, and Luque followed it up with several strikes that forced the referee to jump in.
Will fight Luque
June 22, 2020
Brown's fight against Vicente Luque is back on for an event at an undisclosed location on Aug. 1, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
Brown was originally set to fight Luque on April 18, but it was ultimately called off due to COVID-19. He will now look to turn around his recent momentum, as he has lost three of his previous five fights. His opponent, Luque, has actually fought since their originaly bout was cancelled and ultimately defeated Niko Price at UFC 249 in May.
Fight with Luque scrapped
April 6, 2020
Brown will no longer face Vicente Luque in his next fight, as Luque has been moved to a matchup against Niko Price at UFC 249 on April 18.
It was going to be a prime opportunity for Brown against a solid fighter in Luque, albeit a matchup he would have entered as an underdog. It's unclear what the immediate future has in store for Brown, as the UFC is rumored to be holding multiple events in the same location as the upcoming pay-per-view card.
Luque up next in April
February 8, 2020
Brown will face Vicente Luque in a welterweight bout at UFC Fight Night on April 11 in Portland, Damon Martin of MMAFighting.com reports.
Brown is coming off a submission victory over Warlley Alves (triangle choke) at UFC Brazil in November, and he'll look to extend his win streak to three in Portland. Luque lost for the first time in six fights at UFC 244 in November and subsequently opted to take some time off, but his absence from fighting remained relatively brief.
