UFC’s Matt Brown Responds to Accusations of Faking Low Blow: “That’s Bulls–t”

Matt Brown has forged a reputation for being a fearless fighter, so not surprisingly, the welterweight isn’t happy about accusations he faked a low blow at UFC on FOX 12.

During Brown’s memorable fight with Robbie Lawler on Saturday, the fighter momentarily halted, after a kick landed close to his midsection. The welterweight was given a moment to recover by referee John McCarthy, who called it a low blow.

In response to critics who are saying Brown pretended it was an illegal shot, the fighter posted on Facebook:

“First off thanks to ‪#‎theimmortalarmy‬ for your constant support.
Second off I’ve read some things saying that said I faked the nut shot. I would never do that in my fucking life. That’s bullshit. Period. End of story.
Third I want to say check out our podcast Legit Man Shit very soon for my personal fight recap.”

McCarthy also weighed in on the issue via Twitter recently, by posting:

Lawler won the headliner, and locked up a rematch with champion Johny Hendricks, by scoring a unanimous decision.
