The rising UFC welterweight contender Randy Brown secured an explosive knockout win against Muslim Salikhov and now wants to elevate his career by entering the competitive UFC welterweight top 15 rankings. Watch the knockout here.

Randy Brown believes fighting Michael Chisea will allow him to fulfil his goal of entering the rankings. Chisea is currently ranked 14th and is ready to fight Randy Brown. Chiesa said UFC 300 would be too early for him to make a return, so it would be fair to assume that he will show up in the second half of 2024.

During the recent post-fight interview, Randy Brown shared his thoughts on fighting Michael Chisea. “I just always thought we would be a good matchup for years,” Brown said, as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com.

“These are the guys that I’ve been watching. These are guys that when I grew up watching MMA as an amateur, that I’ve seen in ‘The Ultimate Fighter,’ and I’ve got a ton of respect for them.

I just think you have to defend your ranking. As someone established in the rankings – or, as you say, ‘a contender’ – you can’t just rest on your laurels. This isn’t a shot to him or anything, but I just feel like he doesn’t fight as consistent as he should.

If I’m a contender coming up and I’m looking at these guys and I’m like, ‘Who can I realistically get a matchup with?’ and the guys that aren’t fighting – you’ve got to do something to prove you belong in that spot.

I feel like he’s one of the guys that don’t fight enough, so I just locked in on him”.

“We’re trying to get it done, he said maybe UFC 300 is a little too soon for him, but he wants to do it.

If he’s a man of his word, which I think he is, hopefully the UFC can come to something or we can go to the UFC and work it out. We’ll see”.
