WEC 41 Video: Tyson Griffin Picks Mike Brown to Beat Urijah Faber



Day 2 of Dana White's WEC 41 video blog features UFC fighters making their predictions on the Mike Brown-Urijah Faber featherweight title fight. Wanderlei Silva, Rampage Jackson and Rashad Evans all pick Faber, while Gray Maynard picks Brown. But the most interesting comments come from Tyson Griffin.

Griffin, who beat Faber in a Gladiator Challenge fight in 2005, had a longstanding war of words with Faber. He was also the only person to have a win over Faber on his record until Brown did it last year. And Griffin thinks that Faber is still very beatable.

"I like Mike Brown, just because he's a sound fighter," Griffin said. "Obviously, I'm not a big fan of Urijah's for obvious reasons, but outside of that, from a pure standpoint, he's a reckless fighter who hasn't learned to not be reckless. Mike Brown is a sound fighter who's consistently sound. He won't make a mistake and Urijah's going to make a mistake. I'm sure he's not going to make a mistake as early as he did in their last fight, but I think, just stylistically, Mike Brown is a terrible match-up for him. ... Brown's a bigger, smarter fighter who's got a better camp around him."

I agree with Maynard and Griffin: I'm picking Brown.
