Randy Brown scores TKO, wants on UFC 300


LAS VEGAS – Randy Brown scored arguably the most impressive finish of his octagon tenure Saturday against Muslim Salikhov at UFC Fight Night 235.

Brown (18-5 MMA, 12-5 UFC) showed his striking is on the level of the much more decorated “King of Kung Fu” Salikhov (19-5 MMA, 6-4 UFC) with a flush 1-2 combination that led to a knockdown. “Rude Boy” landed one more shot on the ground before the referee stopped the middleweight bout at the UFC Apex at the 3:17 mark of Round 1.

With a dozen UFC victories now on his resume and a 6-1 record in his past seven fights dating back to April 2021, Brown said he’s looking to do bigger and better things at 170 pounds.

“I feel like people don’t get to see what I’m truly capable of, and I finally get to come out here and put hands on somebody like we do at the gym, and that’s what we do,” Brown said in his post-fight interview with Daniel Cormier. “Put me in here for (UFC) 300. … I’m telling you, I’m a top-15, top-10 caliber fighter – and get me somebody so I can move up the f*cking ranks.”
