Which may mean Howard is out of a job.
Brown beat Howard by unanimous decision Sunday after 15 minutes of close, back and forth fighting, and although it wasn't a thrilling fight, it was enough for Brown to save his job in the UFC. Howard will have to be anxious this week as he wonders if he'll get another chance inside the Octagon.
"I just had fun," Brown said afterward. "Mad props to Howard -- what a f**king warrior he is," Brown said before realizing he had just sworn on live television and asking not to be fined.
Whether Brown is fined or not, at least he can be confident that the win saved his job. Brown hadn't won a fight since beating James Wilkes in 2009.
The win improves Brown's record to 12-10. Howard falls to 14-7.
