Matt Brown

Welterweights Matt Brown and Mark Scanlon have agreed to meet at the upcoming UFC on Versus 3 show set to go down March 3 in Louisville, KY.

The bout was confirmed to MMAWeekly.com by sources close to the match-up on Monday. Heavy.com initially reported the bout.

Matt Brown (11-10) is known as one of the most exciting fighters in the UFC, but he is in a must win situation as he gets ready to return to action in March.

The former Jorge Gurgel student has fallen on tough times of late dropping his last three fights in a row, and was given another chance by the promotion following a loss to Brian Foster at UFC 123 in Nov 2010.

Facing Brown in March will be British fighter Mark Scanlon (7-2) who makes his second appearance in the UFC after losing in his debut fight to Pascal Krauss at UFC 122 in Germany.

Scanlon trains out of his native England, and will look to make a better showing for himself when he returns in March against Brown.

It’s expected that the fight between Brown and Scanlon will occupy a slot on the untelevised portion of the show set to go down on March 3 in Louisville, KY.
