Mike Brown at WEC 44Following his second neck fusion and 10th overall surgery, former WEC champion Mike Brown has taken on a full time role as coach at his home camp at American Top Team in Florida.

Brown underwent surgery in mid-September after suffering from extreme neck pain and weakness in his left hand. The surgery was a complete success, but while Brown is on the mend, he’s opted to start looking towards his future away from active competition.

Following his last fight and win at UFC 146, Brown had mulled over the idea of retirement, but ultimately signed a new five-fight contract with the promotion.

While this latest surgery doesn’t rule out Brown’s return to action, he’s decided to take on a more full-time role as coach at American Top Team during his recovery. According to representatives at American Top Team, Brown will be a full-time assistant coach for their pro fight team, and will take on the day-to-day duties of coaching, traveling and cornering fighters coming out of the Florida-based gym.

A release from the team regarding his fight career states “he will see how his rehab goes and take it one day at a time. He hasn’t ruled out fighting in the future.”

Brown will begin his new role as coach with American Top Team immediately as he continues his rehabilitation from neck surgery.
