In an interview with 'MMA fighting', the welterweight (up to 77,1kg.) called the light heavyweight champion (up to 93kg.) overvalued and predicted a dangerous scenario in the UFC 300. This Saturday (13), the São Paulo native faces Jamahal hill in the main fight.

“It's a difficult fight for Poatan, because he's not very technical. People overvalue his qualities. He's a huge athlete. Bigger than most light heavyweights. He has enough talent to be successful. I watched part of his dynamic stand-up instructions and thought: 'This is ridiculous. He looks terrible.' He's tough, but I think someone like Jamahal hill can exploit its flaws,” Brown said.
