One UFC veteran might be thinking about a potential comeback.

That veteran is Matt Brown. Leading into his slugfest with Diego Sanchez on the main card of UFC Fight Night 120 back on November 11th, 2017 at Ted Constant Convocation Center in Norfolk, Virginia, Brown made it clear that this would be his retirement fight.

The promotion even hyped it as his last fight with video packages before the fighters were about to step inside the Octagon.

However, following the fight, which saw him score a first-round knockout over Sanchez, Brown was noncommittal by stating that he would need to take time to make his decision.

As a result of flatlining Sanchez with a ferocious standing elbow in UFC Norfolk’s co-main event, Brown snapped a three-fight losing streak in thunderous fashion. It also marked his first win over two years.

Even though it was a strong performance for Brown, it was bittersweet due to the fact that he holds so many great memories of watching Sanchez compete in the early days of the promotion.

Sanchez was one of Brown’s favorite fighters due to him inflicting such damage. It was a tough fight for him not only physically, but mentally.

Brown is still interested in fighting Carlos Condit. He recently with the Fight Society podcast (transcript courtesy of MMA Fighting) and during the interview, he suggested that he would postpone his “semi-retirement” if this fight can be made.

“Maybe it’s time for me and him to lock horns,” said Brown. “I’d love to. I’ve got so much respect for him. Of course, I would love to. Everybody would want to see that fight. It was supposed to happen before.

We’ll see what happens. That’s definitely one people would want to see no matter what. It would be a fight for the ages. Now it would certainly be a fight that would make me want to come out of semi-retirement.”

“Maybe it’s time for me and him to lock horns,” said Brown. “I’d love to. I’ve got so much respect for him. Of course, I would love to. Everybody would want to see that fight. It was supposed to happen before.

“I haven’t made any decisions on anything. That would be one that would probably wake me up and get me out of bed.”

“We’d definitely have to go five,” said Brown. “We’ll see what happens. Maybe Sean Shelby will be listening in and give me a call next week.”
