Matt Brown on Wonderboy: 'I can go 100-0 beating a bunch of idiots'

Matt Brown > idiots.
Matt Brown > idiots.

UFC welterweight wunderkind Stephen Thompson has 63 straight victories.

He's 37-0 as an amateur kickboxer, 20-0 as a pro kickboxer and 6-0 in mixed martial arts (MMA), including a successful Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) debut at UFC 143: "Diaz vs. Condit" back on Feb. 4 in Las Vegas.

The "Immortal" (and slightly outspoken) Matt Brown, who fights "Wonderboy" at the upcoming UFC 145 pay-per-view (PPV) event on April 21 at the Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia, is not impressed.

From his interview with MMA Weekly:

"I don’t know what he’s about in MMA. It looked to me he was doing the same old karate, and the karate’s the same thing, like who did he fight in karate? I don’t know. Name me one guy, name me one guy he fought. I’m not too concerned with this guy’s kickboxing. I can go 100-0 beating a bunch of idiots, but that’s not my style."

Hear more from Brown on their recently announced match-up, after the jump.
