Matt Brown Talks Wonderboy: ‘I Can Go 100-0 Beating a Bunch of Idiots’

Posted on by MMAWeekly.com Staff


For all the hype that surrounded Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson after his fight at UFC 143, one person that wasn’t jumping on the bandwagon was Ultimate Fighter veteran Matt Brown.

While Brown was impressed with Thompson’s performance, he’s not ready to anoint him the next great fighter in MMA based on one bout in the UFC.

As a matter of fact, Brown isn’t all that impressed with Thompson’s credentials as a whole. Carrying a 63-0 record between kickboxing and MMA, Thompson certainly has the wins, but Brown’s curious who those wins have been against.

“I don’t know what he’s about in MMA. It looked to me he was doing the same old karate, and the karate’s the same thing, like who did he fight in karate? I don’t know. Name me one guy, name me one guy he fought,” Brown asked when speaking with MMAWeekly.com‘s Damon Martin.

“I’m not too concerned with this guy’s kickboxing. I can go 100-0 beating a bunch of idiots, but that’s not my style.”

Brown has worked in the past with some top Muay Thai champions as well including Kevin Ross among others. All that put together, Brown believes that Wonderboy’s hype will come crashing down at UFC 145.

Check out the full interview with Matt Brown just after the news broke that he was fighting Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson:

    Ummm…no, Brown. Actually u can’t.

    • The_SaavedraFiles

      Brown is pretty decent..but he sure to get KO’ed , Thompson is a threat.

  • matty

    This fight is going to be great! Brown better not take him lightly because he will get ko’d really fast. Thompson via ko rnd 2.

  • Danjitsu

    Tough talk from a guy who was barley over .500 even before he got to the UFC.

    • Lesnardo

      lol. He could defend himself by claiming that he has been fighting only big names.

      Truth is, I would say 100-0 against no names is more impressive than 30-70 against top guys.

  • shereko

    Thompson by KO in the 1st. Weird that a guy with a barely .500 record tries to take a shot at a guys 63-0 record… that means its on his mind. Though I didn’t listen to the whole interview yet to see the context but, I’m guessing “The Immortal” is a little concerned.

  • fightfankevin

    Matt should check his own record, couple of good names but not exactly a whose who in mma.

  • markronin

    Dude, Thompson is legit. Not many throw that many kicks and don’t get winded, he has great cardio and kicks that are as good or better than Cung Le’s.

    Only thing Thompson is questionable on is his ground game, which we will likely see with Brown.

    If Brown isn’t careful though he will get KO’d the same as the last guy.

  • Sal_Manilla71

    Thompson is a serious striker but Brown shouldn’t be underestimated. He’s crafty, tough as nails & experienced. I like this match-up & can’t wait to watch the fight.

    Brown is an idiot! He cant even beat “losers” in the MMA, let alone in kickboxing.

    Matt Brown Won 13 & Lost 11 – list of “losers” Matt lost to in MMA … Seth Baczynski (2-1 UFC), Brian Foster, Daniel Moraes & Jesse Chilton etc. He can’t beat “losers” in MMA, but he can go 100-0 in kickboxing?!? UGHHH sure he can…T!

    I think Brown should stop worrying about what “Wonderboy” can or cannot do & start working on his BJJ b/c his BJJ/ground game is PATHETIC & thats being polite. Brown has 11 losses & 9 of them … 9 of them were by submission.

    Wonderboy by TKO/KO – hopefully!

      TYPO:
      Brown is an idiot! He cant even beat “losers” in MMA. (not in the MMA)
