Mike Brown Excited about UFC/WEC Merger

Former World Extreme Cagefighting featherweight champion Mike Brown gives his thought on the WEC UFC merge.

“I think they were maybe trying to grow the WEC to see if they could make two shows as big as the UFC,” Brown said. “And I just think more [popular with] the UFC name brand, you got to go with the UFC name brand.”

Brown has been competing with the WEC organization since June 2008 and is looking forward to his return trip to the full-sized Octagon.

“It’s new motivation. It’s new excitement,” said Brown, who plans on staying at featherweight when he makes his UFC return. “I can’t wait. So happy. It’ll have been seven years for me to get back into the UFC.”
