Matt Brown: "I can outwrestle GSP"

UFC Fight Night 26 Winner Matt Brown, 'I Can Outwrestle Georges St. Pierre'

Matt Brown turned a few heads when he mentioned Georges St. Pierre's name in his post-fight speech. Brown may make those people go into full Exorcism mode and have them turn their heads all the way around with his latest statement.

Speaking to MMA Junkie Radio, the surging welterweight believes he has the skills to beat GSP at his own game.

"I know where my wrestling stands," Brown said. "It's simply a matter of executing those abilities in the ring with 'GSP.' I can outwrestle him. I'm calling it right now."

No really he's serious. This isn't some kind of late April Fools joke.

"It sounds f---ing ridiculous, and everybody is going to laugh at me, and I know the forums, everybody's going to talk about how I'm delusional and this and that. ...I know where I'm at."

Brown trains with members of the Ohio State wrestling team and at the Ohio Regional Training Center, which hosts a number of Olympic hopefuls and World Team members. If he's putting in the time there, he may be right in that his wrestling would shock people, but that's only because few would peg Brown to survive, let alone win a wrestling meet with GSP.

Many welterweight title hopefuls attempt to peg one area of St. Pierre's game as the key to victory but very few, if any, have ever looked to beat GSP on the mat. Brown's ground game may be improving, but given what GSP has done, it's hard to imagine him stopping the fast and powerful takedowns of St. Pierre.

Given that GSP has already beaten better wrestlers like Josh Koscheck (twice), Jon Fitch, and Matt Hughes (twice) among others, is there anyone who'd give Brown a chance at outwrestling GSP? Well, any sober people?

I wonder if he believes what he says.

Whose to say he can't. As of now we have no idea. No one picked Penn or Maia to outwrestle Fitch either and we saw what happened there.

Bj out-wrestled Fitch until Fitch got over the surprise and took it seriously. Quiet frankly i found nothing surprising about Maia outgrappling Fitch.

GSP wont be surprised it will be Matt Brown who will be surprised how quick he got put on his back.

Brown would get man handles by GSP. Brown needs another fight or two against some top guys like Maia or Condit before he gets considered for a shitle tot.

unfortunately he's too tall and skinny to win a wrestling battle with GSP, how many collegiate wrestling champs are tall and skinny?

Brown needs to get trash talking pointers from Sonnen.

He's on a natural high at the moment and I do believe he can get the flash KO for sure. He's shown he's got serious power and finishing capabilities, but that's how it goes against GSP til he stifles their every move, minute by minute, round by round until you're sapped of all your energy and your will power is broken. GSP should be known as the neutralizer.

He's a fight or two away. Plus I do give him credit for a pretty cool name.

Kampmann or Condit next and he's on his way...

Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

I'll give him credit for picking a fight with the top dog, but GSP has handily beaten fighters at Matt's level and higher. Quick unexpected KO? Possible. Outwrestle GSP? I don't see it happening.

I don't see anyone beating GSP by really being better than him. I can see him dominating a fight but losing to a flash KO and that's it.

Matt Brown please stop talking!

I love Brown and his style of fighting but when he speaks, the words that come out of his mouth are rediculous. 'I can out wrestle GSP' 'Mike Pyle is better than GSP'...

Please, just stop!
