Could be a good fight. Matt Brown is an exciting and aggressive fighter.

Not sure Wilks could beat Brown, but I don't know enough about him to be certain.

I like this fight, very tough test for Wilks in his first post-tuf appearance. Seems the UFC arent protecting the TUF champs anymore.

I'm potentially going to 105, so with Bisping, Wilks and Pearson all on the main card, i'm hoping for the other 2 fights on the main card involving non-uk guys though.

Do any of the UK members actually have any love for Wilks? I feel indifferent towards him. Don't really care what he does. He doesn't conjure up and feelings of emotion or national pride for me.

But yeah the card is looking stellar so far...

Matt is a fun fight, but the advantage is definitely for Wilks in this one.

Matt had problems with Amir, especially those knees in the clinch, when they fought on TUF. Wilks knocked out 4 teeth with those knees.

Fun fight overall. Would prefer it was on a FN, but whatever.

Wilks is ok, not seen enough of him, so to answer your question (as I'm English) I don't have any love for him as of yet, give me a shit hot performance and that will help!

Matt, if your going, give me a shout and I'll come and say hello.

I look the look of Riley/Pearson better than this fight tbh though

I think that Matt Brown would take this, he's such an aggresive fighter, he could overwhelm Wilks, although he surprised us all in the final! Could make for a good fight...

Yea deffo will tobes. Sites said tickets were going on sale like 3 weeks ago but i cant find anything, even phoned the MEN arena and they had no idea about it, so i think the sites got it wrong.

I do like wilks, but Brown is one of my favourite fighters in the WW division, so i may actually be pulling for him.
