Mike Brown to Return Next Month Against Some Dude

(Anthony Morrison vs. Patrick Upton, 4/28/07)

Less than eight weeks after he had his WEC featherweight title ripped from his waist by Jose Aldo, Mike Brown will return to the cage to start rebuilding. According to MMA Weekly, Brown competes next at WEC 46 (January 10th, Sacramento) against Anthony "Mean Machine" Morrison, a 14-6 veteran of various regional promotions who most recently scored a 69-second TKO over UFC vet Alvin Robinson at a Ring of Fire event in Denver earlier this month. With all the big names currently in the WEC’s 145-pound division, you’d think the former champ would draw one of them for his next fight. This is clearly one of those "get your confidence back as quickly as possible" kind of matchups — let’s hope Brown’s impatience doesn’t come back to bite him in the ass. WEC 46′s rather-stacked lineup currently looks like this:

Jamie Varner vs. Ben Henderson (for unified lightweight title)
Urijah Faber vs. Raphael Assuncao (FW)
Mike Brown vs. Anthony Morrison (FW)
Dave Jansen vs. Kamal Shalorus (LW)
Mackens Semerzier vs. Deividas Taurosevicius (FW)

Charlie Valencia vs. Akitoshi Tamura (BW)
Wagnney Fabiano vs. Frank Gomez (BW)
Eddie Wineland vs. Rafael Rebello (BW)
Coty Wheeler vs. Will Campuzano (BW)

After the jump: Morrison’s pro debut against Will Loushin, 6/30/06.

myfightwiffacheeto has some decent comments....but to be quite frank i couldnt care less about if a fighter is BLUE COLLAR or WHITE COLLAR....

EXAMPLE > BJ PENN>>> rich spoiled fighter in the world in his weight. and i love the guy

MATT HUGHES...came from nothing....>>still a douche bag.

i dont really think that where you come from has anything to do with how much i like you as a fighter...

i HATE mike brown...why? cuz i love urijah faber....he's exciting, entertaining, extremely talented, and if he hadnt broken both his hands on mike browns dome, he would have, in my opinion, beaten mike brown. it's a shame that he got injured in the rematch.

this card sucks for 1 reason only....typical ZUFFA ANTICS big names in 3 of the fights....but they are not the matchups I want to see. i'd rather see varner vs cowboy again....or aldo vs urijah. hard to get excited about that kind of fight!

See normally you and I see eye to eye... at least when you're serious. Also I was on your side in my youth as I also wanted He-Man and Prince Adam dead.

But how can you not like MTB? Dude is a blue-collar fighter. Comes from nothing etc. He can whoop anyone in that division (minus Aldo, but when he gets that rematch I think he can take him) and he KO'ed Faber and tossed him around the cage at will in their rematch. Aldo will straight-up murder Faber and make him go fight Torres @ 135.

and for 831's Pops... you're just as retarded as your son. I'm looking at least six big names on that card.

Brown should win this easily.

I know he's a bad ass and everything but I could just give a fuck less about him for real. He's good and he's tough but for some reason he just doesn't appeal to me. For some reason Faber v Aldo is the fight I want to see. And if he can get passed Assuncao we'll probably get that.

Typical WEC. Good fights but no names. No wonder WEC has trouble making money.
