As recently as November 2011, it looked as if there was a real possibility that veteran UFC welterweight Matt Brown might be in line to be released from the organization.

At that point, he had lost four of his past five fights. Although he was putting on highly entertaining performances for the most part, his record simply wasn’t on the level that the UFC expects of its fighters.

Six months later, Brown’s UFC roster spot is not only firm, he’s also quickly climbing up the rankings at 170 pounds.

Brown’s most recent victory took place on Friday night’s UFC on FX 4: Maynard vs. Guida fight card, when he controlled and earned a TKO victory over another solid veteran fighter in Luis Ramos.

“The Immortal’s” takedown defense was on display as he spent little time on his back during bout.

It was his Muay Thai clinch that did the majority of the damage, smashing Ramos’ head with some vicious knees. Brown followed the knees up with powerful punches and elbows that rocked the Brazilian numerous times.

Though Ramos showed a granite chin by not being knocked off his feet, the damage he was sustaining was very evident. The referee eventually stepped in to call a stop to what could have been a brutal ending.

The victory was already Brown’s third of 2012. It will be interesting to see if he can keep this impressive streak going as we head deeper into the second half of the year.
