UFC welterweight competitor Matt Brown joined Inside MMA to discuss his upcoming main event against Robbie Lawler this coming weekend at UFC on FOX 12.

Matt Brown is less than six days away from the biggest fight of his UFC career, and instead of potentially adjusting his training camp to suit the occasion, he has chosen to remain ‘simple' and ‘primitive' with his preparation for the contest.

Brown, who is slotted to meet the welterweight division's No. 1 contender, Robbie Lawler, in the main event of UFC on FOX 12 this coming Saturday in San Jose, is trying to keep his focus solely on his fight this weekend instead of allowing himself to soak up the moment and get caught up in his achievements to date.

"It has been a rollercoaster," Brown said. "I just kinda look more towards the future than towards the past. I don't want to get caught up in what I've already done. I look more towards what I plan on doing in the future."

Asked if he was planning anything in particular for Lawler, Brown quickly explained that he tries never to predict his opponent's actions ahead of the fight, and instead keeps his own preparation flexible.

"I try to never expect anything in a fight. I'm coming into this fight looking simply to fight. If he goes for a takedown, that's his choice. I'm prepared for that. I don't necessarily have any gameplan [prepared].  Like Bruce Lee said: ‘Be like water.' I'm ready for whatever happens."

Brown divulged further into his pre-fight preparation and revealed that he forces himself to strip away all the "fancy stuff" from the training and instead uses a primitive, simplified approach, which has worked out so far for him.

"I like to call it ‘just got back to the primitive.' It is just raw, basic stuff. All the fancy stuff was kinda holding me back and got me overthinking things - overanalyzing things. It is just staying true to who you are. Just keeping everything really simple. That is why I call it just being ‘primitive' about everything."

UFC on FOX 12 takes place July 26, 2014 at SAP Center in San Jose, California.
