Matt ‘The Immortal’ Brown hasn’t held back any punches when talking about Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone. This has come before they have even fought in the octagon. After the UFC 206 open work-outs, Brown had a few choice words to say about his Saturday night opponent. All this has stemmed from Cerrone claiming Brown had gave him the cold shoulder in a brief passing on Tuesday. Brown had this to say at the UFC 206 media scrum. “I didn’t see him yesterday, but I will give him the cold shoulder.”
“I mean, I’ve talked to him before, but that doesn’t make him a friend. So, I don’t care for him, I don’t care for his personality.”
Brown also went on record stating that he has met Cerrone before but it wasn’t quite the best encounter from the ‘Immortal One‘s point of view. Here is what he had to say on that: ” I mean, I’ve talked to him before, but that doesn’t make him a friend. So, I don’t care for him, I don’t care for his personality. Even when I talked to him I didn’t want to talk to him, I was just being cordial. I don’t have any good feelings towards him at all. I don’t like the way he acts, I don’t like the way he carries himself, and I don’t like the way he represents the sport.”
“He wants to be an alpha male and he really wants to portray himself as something special.”
Exposing the truth.
When questioned as to why he thought this way about ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone, Brown explained “No it’s just his personality, you can see the way he talks”. Matt Brown then said “He wants to be an alpha male and he really wants to portray himself as something special. And I think it’s all these yes men he’s got around him, I think he’s just being lied to by them telling him, ‘Donald you’re the champion man, you’re so good, you’re so great, you’re going to be this and that.’ Really he’s just being lied to. It’s my job to come in there and expose that truth out of him.”
With Matt Brown taking aim at Cerrone, you can expect a bit of bad blood going into this bout. Both men are game to stand and trade shot after shot. But the question is, will ‘Cowboy‘ shut Matt Brown up? Will the ‘Immortal one‘ expose Cerrone?
