“It’s not out of the picture that this might be my last fight,” Matt Brown believes this fight against Carlos Condit on Saturday at UFC Fight Island 7 could potentially be his last professional fight. He continued, “Once again, I’ll go home and think about it. I have three kids, businesses, that kind of thing. That’s the hard part of life. Fighting is the easy part, to be honest. I miss my kids.”
At 40 Brown doesn’t want to commit too far ahead. He wants to go home, see his kids, look at where his businesses are at the moment and then access the overall situation and decide the future course of action. “That’s what really gets me down, to be away from my kids all the time. They don’t deserve it.” He further adds that he finds it very hard to stay away from his kids. And that his kids deserve his presence and his time.
