Rude Boy


Smashes Alex Oliveira
April 24, 2021
Brown defeated Alex Oliveira via submission (rear-naked choke) at 2:50 of Round 1 at UFC 261 on Saturday in Jacksonville.
It goes in the books as a submission victory for Brown, but it might as well go down as a knockout considering he flattened Brown with a vicious right hand that directly resulted in the finish. Oliveira's durability is legendary, and Brown made him look like an amateur. Consistency has been Brown's major downfall to date. He is capable of a dominant performance like this on a fairly regular basis, but almost always follows it up with a stinker. "Rude Boy" is 4-3 in his past seven fights dating back to Februrary 2017, and that's simply not going to get the job done if Brown wants to take the next step in his career. This was a good start, though.

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.
