Conor McGregor wants the UFC knockout record, and Matt Brown is willing to fight him for it. 

At UFC Charlotte, Brown added to his historic resume by securing his thirteenth knockout in the Octagon. As a result, ‘The Immortal’ is tied for the UFC record alongside Derrick Lewis. Meanwhile, McGregor holds eight KO/TKOs and plans to secure the UFC record before retiring. ‘The Notorious’ had this to say on Twitter:    

“Matt Brown, at 42 years of age, now holds the joint highest KO’s inside the UFC with 13KO’s. Him and “The Beast” Lewis are tied. I hold 8 KO’s inside the UFC currently, at 34 years of age. I’m getting this record.”

Although Brown is 42 years old, he has proven there is still gas left in the tank. He responded to McGregor’s tweet by saying:

“I’ll fight you for it”

McGregor last fought in July 2021, suffering a gruesome leg injury against Dustin Poirier. After enduring a lengthy recovery process, ‘The Notorious’ hopes to silence the doubters by getting back in the win column. The former two-division UFC champion is expected to fight Michael Chandler later this year after they coached The Ultimate Fighter Season 31.

Matt Brown offers to fight Derrick Lewis for the UFC knockout record

Matt Brown, Dustin Poirier, and Derrick Lewis are the only active UFC fighters in the top ten for KO/TKOs. Considering Poirier is at ten KO/TKOs, Brown and Lewis will likely determine who is the record holder for the foreseeable future. 

‘The Black Beast’ is at heavyweight, and ‘The Immortal fights at welterweight, but the latter made a joke about setting the UFC record tie in the Octagon. He had this to say on Twitter:

“Me vs Derrick Lewis for the record. I’m in. Don’t know how the hell i get it done but I’m willing to give it a go!”

Brown holds a UFC record of 17-13. After losing a split decision against Bryan Barberena. ‘The Immortal’ bounced back with a highlight-reel knockout against Court McGee at UFC Charlotte. There are plenty of intriguing matchups left to further the 42-year-old’s legacy.
