        Brown should be fighting Rory, not Saffedine. This is a big and unnecessary step down for Brown.

        • shakejunt

          and brown wouldn’t be a step down for rory?

          i understand that the war with lawler raised his stock, but tarec is ranked higher than anyone brown has beaten. not a step down at all.

        He is walking right into a bear trap.
