He took out the man and now some people think Mike Brown could be the best pound-for-pound fighter in the WEC. Urijah Faber was regarded as the best fighter in the promotion until Brown came along and knocked him out last year. Now Miguel Torres is regarded by most as the top fighter in the WEC but Brown is inching into the conversation after two dominant wins. He's a relatively new name to many of the fans but he knows respect will come with more wins:
"I'll just keep knocking them out and it will come," Brown tells Versus.com. "I'm actually training now better than I ever have before. I feel great. I don't see me losing for a while."
Cole Miller fights in the next weight class at 155 pounds but he told Cage Writer that Brown is naturally bigger:
"(Rolling) with him is not a lot of fun. You just get beat up a lot."
Miller said he knew early on, working with Brown at American Top Team in South Florida that it was only a matter of time before he exploded to stardom:
"I came to ATT in January of '06, I was only there for a few months and telling everybody, Mike Brown could beat anybody in the world at 145. He's paid his dues. He's been training forever."
Brown is becoming a road warrior of sorts. His last time out, he beat Leonard Garcia in his home state of Texas. Next up is Faber's hometown.
