In mixed martial arts, there is little personal discovery to be found until the limits of a comfort zone are left behind. Adversity comes in many forms, and once the pressure is applied, the reality of what a fighter can and can’t handle comes front and center. And while every man will eventually stumble under the bright lights, the refusal to break forges something unique that can be used when needed.

The Rust Belt is a place where luxuries come few and far between, and Matt Brown is no stranger to fighting for more out of life. Industry forgotten and sustained despite hardship served as the backdrop to his humble upbringing in Central Ohio, and those conditions provided an early education to the Columbus native.

Nothing was given to him—only earned—and The Immortal has spent the past decade constantly pressing to evolve from the foundation those tough times provided.

You can see glimpses of his hard-scrabble past in his hard-charging style inside the Octagon, as the 34-year-old welterweight’s aggressive attack and relentless pursuit of victory have made him a staple in one of the most talent-stacked divisions in the UFC.

Just as it takes going through dark times to make great jazz music, you don’t fight the way Brown fights unless putting everything on the line has been a common practice.

Yet, his personal search revolves around more than being a successful fighter. He’s willing to push himself to great lengths because he knows that’s where he’ll learn more about what he’s capable of. And therein lies the greatest source of motivation for the scrappy knockout artist.

It’s not about money, fame or the thrills of competing at the highest level of MMA; it’s about the test and finding what exists each time he crosses the battle lines. 

“There is no question you are what your habits are,” Brown told Bleacher Report. “You are a product of what you do on a daily basis. When you go through a lot of adversity as a youth or a young adult, overcoming that adversity becomes a habit. It becomes familiar to you.

“On the flip side, some people take a different path and spend their lives making excuses for not overcoming it and making their lives better. One of my favorite lyrics is from a Hatebreed song that says, ‘It’s our struggles that define us.’ I say it all the time. It’s a perfect quote and the perfect way to say it because how you deal with adversity makes you who you are.

“Everybody can be a happy and wonderful person every day of their life when things are going great. Now let’s take some of that away and see what kind of person you are. I try to define myself every single day by not allowing the down side of things bring me down and get to me.”

While some people need additional incentive to face life’s challenges, Brown’s determination to push forward is farmed from within. His growth requires no outside catalyst for his drive because he knows tests and trials will come every day.

For Brown, the quest for personal definition is always the primary driving force. He also believes answers can only be found after the truly difficult questions are asked.

“I’m a self-motivated individual,” Brown said. “I’m not exactly sure why it is that way, but I never have a hard time finding motivation. I talk to a lot of people about what they want out of this sport. What are you doing every day and what motivates you? What brings you to this sport? Why do you want to this and not go out and get a college degree and be an accountant or something?

“For me personally, the thing I want out of the sport is what motivates me. The answer to this question is all I need for motivation. If your motivation is money, women or fame, that’s where people find a lack of motivation because those aren’t real authentic things that can inspire you every day.”

Brown has spent the majority of the past three years riding a wave of momentum, but his next showing inside the Octagon will come with different circumstances attached. He rose to contention in the 170-pound ranks on the strength of a seven-fight winning streak but will enter his showdown with Tim Means at UFC 189 on Saturday, July 11 having lost back-to-back fights. 

The amount of talent in the upper tier of the welterweight fold creates an environment where there is little room for error, and a third consecutive setback would likely cost Brown his place in the coveted Top 10 of the divisional rankings. He’s well-aware of the situation, but at the same time, he’s approaching it with his signature tenacity on full blast.

He knows Dirty Bird will come to throw down at UFC 189, but he also sees the Arizona native threatening to undo all the work he invested to climb back from the brink of obscurity and surge up the welterweight ladder to become a certified threat to the 170-pound title.

“If I don’t walk out of this fight with my hand raised, I’ve dropped a lot of what I’ve worked for over the past few years,” Brown said. “I’m not saying that is going to happen, but it’s the fight game and that is a real possibility. That said, I’m not going to focus on making that happen. I’m going to focus on what I need to do today to make that happen. I’m going to focus on being the best I can be, and let’s hope that is enough to beat Tim Means. I truly believe it will be.

“[Tim Means] is a scrappy dude. I think he’s a little underrated, and I really don’t know exactly what he’s capable of. I don’t think he’s shown the best he can be yet, and I’m probably going to bring the best out of him. This is a huge opportunity for him, and I think we are going to see the best Tim Means, and I’m going to bring the best Matt Brown, so we’ll see what happens.

“Every time I fight, I’m motivated to go out there and do what I gotta do, but when you lose, it puts a little more kick in your ass and tells you there’s something you aren’t doing right,” he added. “You have to go after it a little harder, and what really defines a person is how they deal with struggles and adversity. I want to go out there and define myself next weekend.”

Josh Koscheck wasn’t necessarily in favor of the unofficial lifetime ban imposed on Paul Daley after the British slugger popped “Kos” with a post-fight cheap shot at UFC 113.

View full post on Recent News on Sherdog.com

Joanna Jedrzejczyk, the UFC women’s strawweight champion and maybe the most exciting fighter to break onto the big stage this year, underwent thumb surgery on Friday.

The news came early on Friday in a post published to Jedrzejczyk‘s official Instagram account (h/t MMA Junkie):

The bad news: This will keep Jedrzejczyk out of action longer than was originally estimated. In late June, she told The MMA Hour (h/t MMA Fighting) that her fractured thumb would not require surgery and she would only miss four weeks at most. Now, however, she could miss three months or more.

The good news: Jedrzejczyk still expects to return to action by the end of 2015.

“Yesterday I had an appointment with Dr. Shin and surgery was necessary,” the Instagram post stated. “So today we had the procedure at Kerlan-Jobe, surgery was a success and everybody at the hospital was super nice to me. If everything goes ok, I will be back in time to fight before the end of the year.”

Jedrzejczyk (10-0) broke the thumb on June 20 during a dominant third-round technical knockout of Jessica Penne. It was the 27-year-old Jedrzejczyk‘s first defense of her title.

A world muay thai champion before donning the MMA gloves, the Poland native debuted for the UFC almost a year ago and announced her presence with authority.

Decision wins over Juliana Lima and Claudia Gadelha—not to mention her high-octane style and cleverness on the microphone—led her to a title shot in March against Carla Esparza, the winner of The Ultimate Fighter Season 20 and inaugural UFC strawweight champion.

Jedrzejczyk won that bout, and the title, with a second-round knockout. Both that and her knockout of Penne earned her post-fight performance bonuses from the UFC.

Jedrzejczyk is a five-time gold medalist at the International Federation of Muaythai Amateur World Championships, taking the top spot from 2009 to 2013.

Unable to pick up a win at 170 pounds in his two appearances since returning to the UFC roster, Joe Riggs has decided to move up to 185 pounds. Welcoming Riggs back to the middleweight division will be The Ultimate Fighter 17 contestant Uriah Hall.

The UFC broke the news of the matchup via its own website on Friday morning.

Having recorded one of the most spectacular knockouts in TUF history, Hall has been considered a competitor with huge potential since he was first introduced to UFC fans. Entering his last outing with three straight victories, it looked as though he was finally about to realize that potential and become a contender at 185 pounds.

Instead, Hall disappointed against Rafael Natal and suffered an upset loss via split decision. With that deflating defeat, Hall will now have some work to do before he can be considered a title threat in the middleweight class, and his road starts with a victory over Riggs.

With six straight victories, Riggs earned his way back into the big show despite many believing he would never return to the Octagon. However, things have not gone as planned for Diesel in the UFC welterweight division.

First, Riggs was removed from his originally scheduled return after accidentally shooting himself in the hand while cleaning a gun. Then, Riggs suffered back-to-back losses and is now turning to a move up in weight to avoid being released by the UFC brass once again.

Given Hall’s size and Riggs’ lack of success against UFC competition, this bout seems designed to get the former back into the win column. With Hall developing a reputation as an inconsistent and unreliable fighter, though, anything could happen.

It’s tough to be certain where this bout will end up on the fight card. Hall and Riggs could serve as main card openers or appear in one of the more notable prelim contests.

Glover Teixeira and Ovince Saint Preux will headline UFC Fight Night 73, which is scheduled to be held on August 8Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee, will host the event.
