“To be honest, I’m not even thinking about it right now,” Matt Brown told MMAjunkie shortly after his win. “It’s not even really a thought in my mind. I’m thinking about enjoying tonight, and we’ll talk about it later.”
If Brown does indeed decide against retirement, then he seems to have a willing opponent for his next bout: veteran slugger Siyar Bahadurzada. Bahadurzada called Brown out on Twitter on Monday morning.
Hey [Matt Brown] if you’re still fighting, take some rest and let’s fight end of January or early February,” Bahadurzada said on Twitter. “I’ll give you a proper goodbye from the sport. Don’t bring your wife and kids to the fight this time. You’re a smart man. You know what I mean! #YouWillBeUnimmortalized”
