Lawler will next defend his welterweight title against Tyron Woodley, a man who Brown believes will stylistically be an 'easy fight' for the champion:
And while he has not held back his disdain for Woodley, Brown says he just doesn't like this matchup for the former Strikeforce title contender, personal feelings aside. Brown has faced Lawler in the Octagon and he knows just how tough he can be. He doesn't think that bodes well for Woodley at UFC 201.
"I think it's an easy fight for Lawler," Brown said. "I think it's sort of, I don't know if I'd say gimme fight, but I mean it's definitely, this is the type of fight Lawler should shine in. He's an extremely hard guy to take down and has all the tools on the feet, obviously, to knock Woodley out. Woodley has a chance in the early rounds and I think that's probably about it."
