It might be counted as arrogance if one tends to think that he can beat the Ultimate Fighting Championship or the UFC Welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre in the same way that he has beaten almost all of his opponents in the past few years: wrestling.
Matt Brown, another Welterweight fighter in the promotion knows this very well. But now, he has taken it a bit too far by some people’s reckoning to say that he can beat Rush in his own game. Brown has never been afraid to speak his mind; it’s just that he has not had the stage to do it previously. Speaking to MMAJunkieRadio.com recently, Brown stated that he knows exactly where his wrestling stands. He added that it is just a matter of implementing those skills inside the ring with GSP and he knows he can get the better of him, before mentioning that if he was asked to call a wrestling match between him and Georges St. Pierre, he would say he would win hands down.
He understands that people will think he is way over his head and might even consider his comments as ridiculous and the internet will be full of comments about his statements but he is not afraid to call it as he sees it.
Brown believes that Rush hasn’t fought anyone who puts the kind of pressure he will be able to put on him and he feels he can block his takedowns, one of his major tricks to beat opponents. Brown things the best shot Georges St. Pierre has is his takedown and he can block it easily and if people think he is delusional, it is because they haven’t seen him wrestling.
He mentioned he is training with the best wrestlers in the world and he is confident.
