Matt Brown And John Howard Fight To Dull Decision At UFC Live 4

Matt Brown got a unanimous 29-28 decision over John Howard at UFC Live 4 on Versus. Though he faded in the third round, Brown dominated both of the first two rounds by a wide margin. He used his height and reach advantage to outpoint Howard on the feet and solid take down defense to keep the fight where he wanted it.

 

UFC on Versus 4 results: Matt Brown defeats John Howard by unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28).

Howard stayed in the fight, landing a few take downs and presumably winning the third round on all three judges' cards. Unfortunately for Howard, this is his third straight loss in the UFC's welterweight division and he's very likely to be cut from an overcrowded roster.

Ironically Brown came into the fight off three losses without being cut. I'm guessing his status as a veteran of The Ultimate Fighter gave him some leeway with the promotion. He improves his UFC record to 5-4.

The fight was no fun to watch with neither fighter really shining in any aspect of the sport.
