Matt Brown’s former BJJ coach Rodrigo Botti really stirred the pot in the fighter’s personal life by accusing him of an assault during a business meeting. Brown vehemently denied the charges, and was never brought up on any of the allegations to this date. So then the news broke late last night that Botti had assaulted Brown in Brazil, making his trip for UFC 198 perhaps the most troublesome of his entire career.
Brown’s team mate caught up to Botti and gave him a few punches and soccer kicks while a UFC official who was present tried to calm the situation.

So a crazy weekend has finally wound down for Matt Brown, who put out the following post thanking Demian Maia for his BJJ lesson, and confirming he made it back to the states in one piece:
I've finally made it back to the US alive and well! Wasn't sure if that was going to happen but here I am! ???????? Once more thanks to @demian_maia for the lesson in BJJ and thanks to Brazil for making the weekend exciting! Even though I lost I feel one step closer to being the best fighter I can be. I am not going to stop grinding for that gold and I will not let this slow me down even a little bit. I'm just getting started my friends.
