Brown will face Matt Saunders in a welterweight bout at UFC 245, officials confirmed to the Review-Journal on Friday. Brown, 38, has not fought since November 2017 when he knocked out Diego Sanchez to snap a three-fight losing streak. He was scheduled to fight Carlos Condit in April 2018, but had to withdraw because of a torn ACL. Saunders has lost three straight and five of six. He’s coming off a knockout loss to Takashi Sato in April. UFC 245 includes a women’s bantamweight title bout between former featherweight champion Germaine de Randamie and current bantamweight and featherweight champ Amanda Nunes.
