Randy Brown is looking to make a statement tomorrow night when he headlines the UFC 208 pay-per-view preliminary card on FS1 against Belal Muhammad.
A product of UFC President Dana White’s Looking For A Fight, Brown comes into his matchup against Muhammad as one of only three fighters (Mickey Gall, Sage Northcutt and himself) who have had any sort of relative success from the show. Fellow Looking For A Fight alumni Northcutt and Gall have already met each other inside the Octagon, with Gall taking home a second-round submission win via rear-naked choke this past December.
Both Gall and Northcutt have shined since being discovered by White on the show, getting a ton of media interest and exposure after their successes. Brown recently joined me on the Right Hook Radio podcast and stated that he wants a piece of the pie:

“Being one of the three fighters with relative success – they’re putting everyone together to fight each other,” Brown said. “I feel as though I’m the only one fighting real fighters. Wassup? Can I fight Sage Northcutt? Like, what’s good? It’s a good feeling coming from the show and doing well. They look out for me and I work hard, I just keep grinding. It’s a great feeling having Dana White behind me and having him come backstage and sign me personally. That was an amazing feeling, that was definitely a highlight of my life. It felt great, but at the same time I still have a long way to go.
“I feel like a lot of guys get more press than me because – I don’t know why they get more press than me. They get more headlines and all this stuff. I would love to fight those guys. They fight each other and they’re putting all the Lookin For A Fight guys together now. I would love to get in the mix man, I want to fight one of those guys. I want to fight a Mickey Gall, I want to fight a Sage Northcutt, and get the notoriety that they have. But I’m grinding, I’m getting it the hard way.”

Brown is currently on a two-fight win streak, finishing each of those contests with a knockout and submission. He is 3-1 in his UFC career and is looking to make an even bigger name for himself with a statement against Muhammad. He also said that he won’t be afraid to get on the mic and call someone out if given the opportunity, so don’t be surprised if Mickey Gall or Sage Northcutt are the next names out of his mouth.
