    Matt Brown is back.

    The veteran UFC welterweight is set to meet Ben Saunders at UFC 245 on Dec. 14 in Las Vegas, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported Friday.

    Brown hasn’t fought since a December 2017 win over The Ultimate Fighter 1 winner Diego Sanchez. Brown talked about retiring after that fight, but ultimately opted to keep going. “The Immortal” was scheduled to face Carlos Condit in April 2018, but had to withdraw from the fight due to a torn ACL. Brown, 38, has been sidelined ever since.

    Brown, who has been a pro MMA fighter since 2005 and made his UFC debut in 2008, is 2-5 over the past…

    I'm going with Saunders. He's stayed in the game which tells me two things, he's stayed training on a high level, and he's still hungry.

    Brown however, I can't say the same. I know his hunger isn't what it once was, and I think that will be the difference maker. I like both guys though so if Brown wins I won't be mad, I just hope it's not a decision.

    Whatever version of Brown we get, it's still going to be enough to crack Saunders' chin.

    Saunders may have stayed in the game but he's on a pretty bad slide right now. He's lost 3 in a row and 5 of his last 6. Worse, his chin appears to be shot. This match is far from a sure thing but my money's definitely on Brown.

    Either Saunders wins in the first round or Brown fucks him up (entirely possible Brown also wins in the first round).

    Anyway if Saunders loses, I think he should call it a day. He's had a respectable career, no need to keep hurting himself.

    Will be some nice Muay Thai on display. Would not be surprised to see Ben try to get this one to the floor, but I just don’t think his chin will be able to hold up if he gets hit cleanly.

    This is difficult to pick
    Is Ben gonna try to twist him up?
    Is Matt’s head really in the game?

    I can't for the life of me figure out how Ben Saunders is still in the UFC. At any rate, I hope Brown gets the win.

    Good come back fight for Brown. He should get the win. If he wants to keep fighting probably best to give him these types of fights. His days of title chasing are behind him. At this point Hopefully he can just make some good money fighting other big names.
