Siyar “The Great” Bahadurzada 23-6-1 MMA (3-2 UFC) took to twitter to challenge the possibly retired Matt “The Immortal” Brown 21-16 MMA (14-10 UFC).


Bahadurzada made his UFC debut with a huge KO over Paulo “Caveira” Thiago 18-10 MMA (5-8 UFC) at UFC ON Fuel TV 2 back in April of 2012 that put him on a 7 fight winning streak. After that impressive start he began a rocky career. Going on to fight 2 times in 2013 dropping two decisions to Dong Hyun “Stun Gun” Kim 22-4-1-1 MMA (13-4-1 UFC) then John “Doomsday” Howard 25-13 MMA (7-7 UFC). He wouldn’t fight again until March of 2016 when he pulled off a late submission over the then sinking Brandon “Rukus” Thatch 11-5 MMA (2-4 UFC) at UFC 196. Then a year and a half later he would return with a TKO of Rob “Razor” Wilkinson 11-1 MMA (0-1 UFC) at UFC Fight Night 115 in September.


 As Bahadurzada tries to put together his first 3 fight winning streak in the UFC, he has an odd choice of Brown after his recent statements about retirement and his own record. After dropping 5 of his last 6 fights, Brown announced that he would retire at UFC Fight Night 120 vs Diego “The Nightmare” Sanchez 27-11 MMA (16-11 UFC). As the bout approached Brown started to ease up on the retirement talk. After his impressive first round KO of Sanchez this past weekend, Brown decided to not announce his retirement at all and said:

“I don’t know, man. To be honest, I’m not even thinking about it right now. To be honest, It’s not even really a thought in my mind.”


We will have to wait and see how this turns out. Below are Bahadurzada’s tweets.
