Former WEC Champ Mike Brown Cool With Not Getting An Immediate Re-Match Against Aldo

From MMAWeekly:

"I think it’s time for Aldo to fight someone else," Brown told MMAWeekly.com. "He TKO’d me in the second round. There’s no reason he shouldn’t give somebody else a shot before I get back in there.

"I’ve won one. Let somebody else get a crack at it, but if they don’t get it then maybe I get my shot," added the American Top Team trained athlete. "I think it makes a lot of sense. You can’t have me fighting him back-to-back like that for no great reason, but I'll be back and I'll get my shot."

 

It's no secret why Urijah Faber is getting the next shot at Jose Aldo even though Mike Brown has defeated him(Faber) twice.  I think that Brown understands that an Aldo/Faber is the biggest fight that the WEC can put on.  If Faber were to dethrone Aldo, well Brown would be getting a title shot against someone he has already defeated twice.  If Aldo beats Faber, then there would have have been enough time to elapse from the first fight that the WEC could potentially market the re-match properly.
