Anthony Morrison loses fight, but not stock at WEC 46
11 January 2010
Unfortunately, the Morrison’s version of the Rocky story ended with him being thoroughly outmatched. Brown had little trouble clinching up off of Morrison’s over-eager initial strikes. From there Brown dragged the Virginian to the ground, where he maintained dominant position until finishing the bout with a rear naked choke.
Morrison has still likely gained some ground in defeat. Few expected Cheesesteak to beat a former WEC champion with the overall skills that Brown brings to the octagon. However, Morrison walked away with a WEC contract and main card experience on a nationally televised event. Regardless of the circumstances surrounding it, main card status is rarely lost in one fight in the WEC, and Morrison can expect more TV time in the future.
Morrison is managed by Suckerpunch Entertainment, the company that manages fellow Virginian and fan favorite Amir Sadollah, who will be fighting tomorrow night on UFN 20.
