Brown Starts Another Climb to WEC Featherweight
Compiling a ten winning streak, Mike Thomas Brown was intercepted for a title shot via knockout loss courtesy of Jose Aldo. Now that he is re-making his trail to the mountain top, can he reach to the peak this time?
Already on the top of the mountain of mixed martial arts, Mike Thomas Brown was pushed down to the ladder with a knock out loss against Jose Aldo. Now, the 35-year-old fighter hopes to start another climb for a WEC title at WEC 51 on Thursday.
Brown has not competed since his defeat to Manny Gamburyan at WEC 48 last April. But nearly six years ago, he has not lost consecutive fights after his submission loss to Genki Sudo and Joe Lauzon. Brown scored 13 of his 23 victories by submission, and four via knockout. Also anchoring his resume are wins over Urijah Faber, Leonard Garcia, Jeff Curran and Yves Edwards. Still, Brown was not surprised that someone like Aldo came along to outperform him. Due to this, Brown has to face Cole Province in order to get a shot for the title.View Article Source »
