UFC on FOX 7's Matt Brown explains why he isn't dwelling on current win streak

In his march up the welterweight division’s ladder, Matt Brown isn’t looking back at his victories.

“I haven’t really thought about it,” Brown told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio) of his current win streak. “The fact is, every time I go in there, that’s what I’m looking to do. So basically all I did is what I planned on doing, which isn’t a big deal.”

Brown, a veteran of “The Ultimate Fighter 7,” has outlasted most of his reality show counterparts and put together a four-fight UFC win streak since his career-threatening 1-4 run from 2010-2011.

But you won’t hear much more self-congratulation than a sporadic “cool.” He’s got more work to do to accomplish his goals of being a champion.

“At this point, I’m looking more toward the future,” Brown (16-11 MMA, 6-5 UFC) said.

For now, that includes a bout with young gun Jordan Mein (27-8 MMA, 1-0 UFC), who meets him on the first FOX-televised main-card bout at UFC on FOX 7. The event takes place Saturday at HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif.

Brown has fared well against younger fighters in his career. The 32-year-old is 3-0 against those who are four years or more his junior.

Mein, who, despite turning pro when he was 16 and racking up 35 professional fights, is just 23. However, Brown, who was originally was slated to fight Dan Hardy before the Brit was diagnosed with symptoms of Wolff–Parkinson–White syndrome, doesn’t place too much stock in statistics.

“I’m indifferent,” he said.

Mein brings a three-fight win streak into the octagon and is coming off an impressive performance against Dan Miller this past month at UFC 158.

Like Brown, Mein, too, is on a roll, and the loser of Saturday’s bout will lose momentum.

“I can’t wait to get in there and get it done,” Brown said. “Right now, I just can’t wait to make weight and get some food.”
