Former World Extreme Cagefighting featherweight titleholder Mike Brown could wait to fight the winner of Jose Aldo and Urijah Faber, but he has no plans on waiting that long before getting back in action.
“I want to stay busy. I want to fight another one, like, as soon as possible,” Brown told MMAWeekly.com.
“I want to fight again in the meantime,” added the No. 2 ranked featherweight. “I’d love to get the winner of those guys, of course, but I don’t want to wait six, seven, eight months for them to fight and then to rest and then to fight me as well. I wouldn’t mind being busy, but I’d like to get a title shot again someday.”
If Brown loses his next outing, he’ll relinquish his top contender status, but that’s a risk the American Top Team trained athlete is willing to take.
“I’m a fighter. That’s my job, and I want to stay busy,” he declared.
As for Brown’s immediate future, the 34-year-old fighter wants a little down time before getting back to the gym and preparing for his next opponent.
“I’m looking to relax a little bit. Maybe go on a vacation and get back in there in the show after March probably,” said the Maine native. “I don’t get paid if I’m not working.”
