In Brazil, fans don’t just try to steal your hat, they try to steal a couple of rounds with you before you get into the cage with one of their fighters. You think they could give “The Immortal” Matt Brown a break, since he had to fight a damn near grappling sorcerer, but he did kind of flip off an entire nation of people.
Matt Brown has some incredible heel heat in Brazil, eh?

Still, when Brown menacingly stomped his way to the Octagon last night, it was a surprise that he was decked in the back of the head(which isn’t even a legal blow) twice and then some dude attempted a hoodie choke. To make matters worse, then Brown had to get backpacked by Demian Maia and choked. I swear, if I ever go to Brazil I’m wearing nothing but Jacare, Anderson Silva and Werdum kits. Or maybe even one of those Werdum masks to hide my identity.
Watch Brown’s walk of death below that almost resulted in him taking out a fan.
