London, England — “I just wanted to fight, straight up.”
That was Omiel Brown’s reaction to learning he’d had an opponent change for Cage Warriors 141 this past Friday. In the end, it didn’t seem to matter. Brown secured a TKO finish of Alexander Lindgren, improving to 4-1 with the violent stoppage.
Brown did not find the end surprising. “Nah, it’s not. Like I was saying in a previous interview, it just so happens that’s my style. I’m an aggressive fighter. I’m trying my best to become more technical, but instincts take over sometimes,” he told Cageside Press following the fight. “Obviously I’m early in my career, so it’s all learning process. As the levels get harder, I need to learn to be more strategic and tactical with my approach to the game. But first round finish, I can’t complain.”
With the UFC in London over the weekend, Brown was hoping both UFC fans and promotion president Dana White was paying attention.
“I hope Dana’s watching it as well, because I’ll be seeing you in a couple years. Maybe closer, who knows,” Brown exclaimed. “But it feels good, especially to perform like that and come out with a win like I did. It’s entertaining for the fans as well, and that’s the aim of the game. Because at the end of the day we’re kind of fighting for the fans. So once they’re entertained, I’m happy.”
