Brown is now 16-4 in his overall MMA career and has wins over the likes of Trinaldo, Mickey Gall, Warlley Alves, Alex Oliveira and many more.

Eleven of Rude Boy’s 16 wins are by the way of finishes. In an interview with UFC broadcaster and former lightweight fighter Paul Felder, Brown comes out talking about how he did against Trinaldo and how he could’ve done better.

“[It was] a hell of a test,” says Brown. “I don’t think that was my best work and I know my coaches know that and I know the fans watching know that, but I am excited. He was a true veteran. Absolute legend. It was an absolute honour to just get in there, and mix it up with him and I definitely felt that experience in it. So much love to Trinaldo and I appreciate that,” concluded Brown.
