On episode 16 of The Fighter vs. The Writer, UFC welterweight Matt Brown returns to the show to help break down everything that unfolded at UFC 269 this past Saturday night including Charles Oliveira overcoming the odds and defeating Dustin Poirier to defend his lightweight title.

Brown reacts to Oliveira’s performance while also defending Poirier for tapping out to the choke that ended the fight. He will also give his thoughts on Julianna Pena pulling off a massive upset to defeat Amanda Nunes, what’s next for Cody Garbrandt and the appeal surrounding “Suga” Sean O’Malley.

The all-time leader for knockouts in UFC welterweight history will also give his thoughts on Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley 2 and who he’s picking to win the rematch.

Plus, Brown offers an update on his recovery from COVID-19 as well as his hope to return to action in March when the UFC returns to his hometown of Columbus, Ohio.

All this and much more on the latest episode of The Fighter vs. The Writer.
