UFC Quick Quote: Steroids won't save you from Matt Brown's fists

Paul Abell-US PRESSWIRE

Matt Brown talks about his upcoming fight against Mike Swick at UFC on FOX 5 on Dec. 8 in Seattle, in addition to the performance enhancing drugs (PEDs) that plague the sport of MMA.

"They can take all the steroids they want. I don’t think it is helping them as much as they think it is. It is probably more of an insecure thing or a sort of crutch. If they really did increase the testing, which I don’t even know if there is anyway you could, you won’t get rid of it altogether. People will always find a way around it. If there really was a way to just completely get rid of it, I think a lot of guys will have a lot of problem. If they have been taking it for a long time and all of a sudden they don’t have it anymore, what will it do to their minds. It will mess them up. When I punch them in the face, there aren’t any steroids for the jaw."

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight Matt Brown tells The Flying Knee that he's not bothered by how many mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters are taking performance enhancing drugs (PEDs), which fellow 170-pounder Dong Hyun Kim claims is as high as 90 percent, because they're nothing more than a "crutch" for combat insecurities. Brown is slated to throw hands opposite Mike Swick at UFC on FOX 5 next week in Seattle, where one "Immortal" punch could end the fight, assuming his opponent isn't "Quick" enough to avoid it. Early predictions for this welterweight slugfest?
