Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

ATLANTA -- UFC welterweight Matt Brown spoke to MMA Fighting today at the UFC 145 pre-fight open workouts about facing welterweight prospect and karateka Stephen Thompson. Brown admits Thompson's the most unique opponent he's ever faced. However, while admitting Thompson's extensive kickboxing background was impressive, Brown was ultimately unsure of what it all meant in terms of making his opponent tougher or more prepared. Brown also discussed if, as it's been suggested, he resembles someone in the MMA media.
