UFC 245: ‘The Immortal’ Matt Brown returns, Carnage elbow

American mixed martial artist Matt Brown (21-16) returns to action this weekend at UFC 245 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas (Dec. 15 AEDT). “The Immortal” faces his country-fellow Ben Saunders (22-12-2) in a three-round MMA battle at welterweight.

Brown was last seen inside the Octagon in November 2017, when he knocked out Diego Sanchez in the first round with a massive right overhand elbow. On Tuesday the promotion shared a snippet on social media featuring that devastating strike.

In one of the blog on YouTube from last year Brown talks elbow techniques and former heavyweight world champion Nathan Corbett (59-5, 44 KO, 1 NC). The NZ-born Australian competitor known as “Carnage” or “The Man with the Golden Elbows” is widely considered as one of the greatest to ever compete in Muay Thai.

“There is very few of any guys, that are at the level of proficiency with elbows that Nathan Corbett comes with,” Matt Brown says. “I’ve watched him since the beginning of my MMA career, and been inspired by him and learned more from him with the elbows than anyone else. He is one of those guys that made us realize how powerful elbows can be in a fight. What can you say, one of the greatest.”

For those not familiar with Nathan Corbett (really?) the clip below will make it clear.

Matt Brown hasn’t fought since he KO’d Sanchez. He suffered a torn ACL in his knee that required surgery.

Ben Saunders is looking to rebound from a three-fight losing streak. In his previous bout this past April he was stopped by Takashi Sato in the second round.

UFC 245 is headlined by a trio of championship bouts with Kamaru Usman and Colby Covington battling it out on the top of the pay-per-view fight card. The complete lineup, order of the bouts and broadcast schedule in Australia can be found here.
