UFC Live: Kongo vs. Barry Results—John Howard vs. Matt Brown, Round 1
John "Doomsday" Howard has all the explosiveness you could want from a welterweight, but he's having a hard time bringing it to bear thus far in his scrap with Matt "The Immortal" Brown.
Doomsday was supposed to be the guy throwing bombs from his feet and, thus, with the edge in striking. But Brown was the one doling out the majority of the punishment in the first five minutes, at one point convincing the noted Muay Thai practitioner Howard to chase a single-leg takedown like a dog after a bone.
The dynamic was completely reversed by the final horn with Doomsday securing the takedown after absorbing high kicks and surgical knees from the Immortal. Howard also has a looming energy issue as Brown's one of those gladiators who can push the pace until his antagonist breaks.
Score that first round 10-9 for Matt Brown despite some nice early work from Howard and the takedown that amounted to very little if anything.
