Dear Mr. Silva,
First, I would like to thank you for taking the time to read this letter. I fully realize that you are a very busy man, so I will quickly get to my point. I have never written you and have been a fan of your matchmaking for years, but would like to offer a humble suggestion. Please book Carlos Condit vs Matt Brown. It would mean a great deal to me.
Condit vs Brown makes so much sense, for so many reasons. Both “the Natural Born Killer” and “the Immortal” are coming off wins in the welterweight division. Condit managed to beat Thiago Alves by punching him in the nose so hard, that it was temporarily relocated into his forehead. Matt Brown just defeated Tim Means by choking the life out of him in the first round of their fight. If history is any indicator, two fighters coming off wins often face one another in their next matchups. This appears to be one of your favorite booking strategies.
Also, Condit is currently ranked fourth, while Brown is fifth in the welterweight division. With a decisive win, the winner of this fight could become the number one contender for a shot at the Welterweight Championship. Both fighters are still close to their athletic primes as well. Despite being around for what seems like forever, Condit is still only 31 years of age. Meanwhile, Brown, who is 34, isn’t getting any younger. They are both still at the tops of their games, but won’t be forever. Please make this fight happen now, before either fighter gets injured or any older.
Furthermore, the styles of Condit and Brown pair better than oysters on the half shell and a nice chilled glass of muscadet from the Loire Valley. They are violent strikers, who are aggressive on their feet. Kicks, knees, elbows and punches are thrown with vicious intent. Combined they have twenty-seven wins by knockout or technical knockout. They keep moving forward and can just be plain merciless inside the cage. On the ground, both have submission wins and very active guards. It’s perfect.
Combined they have 11 bonus awards. This is essentially guaranteed to be the Fight of the Night on any show. It will be exciting, fans will love it. People will be tweeting up a frickin storm. This fight could main event a Fox Sports 1 card of be the semi main on a big Fox show or pay per view. It doesn’t matter. Myself and many others will watch this fight, wherever you air it. Macao, Alaska, Poland, Mexico, wherever it will be, it’s going to be a helluva fight.
In closing, I have been watching the UFC since the first show in 1993 and again would like to thank you and your team for all the great fights you have booked over the years. As I write this to you, it’s likely that you are already working on the contract for a Condit vs. Brown fight. But, on the off chance you did not consider this fight, please do. It would really make alot of people happy if this fight became a reality.
Thanks again Mr. Silva. I appreciate your time and consideration in this matter.
