On the Facebook undercard portion of the UFC 139 undercard, Matt Brown (12-10, 5-4 UFC) meets Seth Baczynski (14-6, 1-1 UFC). Both men need a win badly to remain safe in their position on the UFC roster. This is also a bout with serious potential to be explosive.
How do these two stack up?
Brown: 30 years old | 6'0" | 76" reach Baczynski: 29 years old | 6'4" | 73" reach
Matt Brown has been in the UFC since a stint on season seven of The Ultimate Fighter in 2008. After going 4-1 in his first five UFC bouts, Brown dropped his next three bouts all by submission. Brown rebounded with a decision win over John Howard this past June. His slightly over .500 record doesn't do his mixture of decent striking and submission game justice, but he does badly need a win at UFC 139 to remain safe in his spot on the UFC roster.
Seth Baczynski is on his second UFC stint. After competing on Season 11 of The Ultimate Fighter, he lost to Brad Tavares at the finale show and was released from the organization. Two stoppage wins on smaller shows earned him a return to the big stage where he cashed in with a submission of Clay Harvison. A win over Brown would cement his place in the UFC and likely move him into a much better spot on the card in his next outing.
Why should you care?
There's good potential for a fun and exciting scrap in this fight. It may not be determining any sort of title contender, but a good fight is still a good fight.
