I couldn't disagree more. If any of these two is average is Dan Hardy. Matt Brown is above average and better in just about every aspect of MMA. I'll be shocked if Dan can make a fight out of this.
Matt Brown is about as average as average gets. He is a good fighter but he is not great at anything. I'm not saying he can't beat Hardy because he certainly can, but I don't see why it's surprising that people are picking against him.
I mean Brown loses almost as often as he wins. He is just a middle of the pack guy.
