Matt Brown Announces His Retirement

Matt Brown has retired from MMA after 19 years in the sport. 

The former UFC welterweight defeated Court McGee last year via a first-round KO, which would end up being his last MMA appearance. While he never won a title, Brown was one of the most exciting fighters in the UFC. The McGee stoppage was Brown’s 13 KO in the UFC, second behind Derrick Lewis, who holds the record with 14. Brown retired with an MMA record of 26-19-0. 

He had been linked with a fight against Jim Miller at UFC 300. However, the fight never happened as ‘The Immortal’ will turn his attention elsewhere. Tributes poured in for the fighter, who thanked his fans for understanding his decision. 

“I’m not using the word ‘retiring’ … I’m moving on to other things, not chilling in Miami golfing all day. That’s retirement. I’ll be working harder than when I was fighting lol. My (old a**) iPhone overheated and battery died from the amount of notifications I received today. I’m overwhelmed I didn’t even think about people actually caring when I posted earlier today. Love all of you guys with all my heart,” Brown stated
