Ultimate Fighting Championship superstar Matt “The Immortal” Brown took time out from training for an upcoming battle with former interim champ Carlos Condit to offer BizPac Review a few thoughts about how U.S. troops overseas are suffering under the government shutdown.

U.S. troops have had to do without post-season Major League Baseball and NFL football coverage as the situation worsens and the president fails to negotiate on Obamacare.

When Brown was asked about the troops losing the coverage, he said:

“I have the highest respect for our soldiers and wish all the best for them. Apparently, Obama thinks differently. Our soldiers should be treated with respect and should not be subject to the downfalls of the American political system. It’s very disheartening to hear that our soldiers are suffering even more than usual because our politicians can not agree on anything. The last people that should suffer is them. Again, Obama thinks differently. I wish the troops the best and hope I can make a difference in getting some entertainment back to them.”

Brown had a message for Obama and his administration:

“I would tell the president that he needs a reality check. He should go serve for a year in the Middle East and see firsthand what it is like to be there. Obviously, he has no clue and no empathy for these men and women.”

    MATT BROWN IS A BEAST HE BEATS HIS OPONENTS DOWN AND TAKES THEIR WILL TO CONTINUE TO FIGHT AWAY FROM THEM

    Matt Clown is a nobody who is about to get his clock cleaned by Condit. Matt, you don’t get paid to think, or else you would understand legislating doesnt happen because one member of Congress is holding a gun to the Nations economy. A bill to fund the Government would pass if put to a vote, unfortunately our Speaker of the House is a paid shill. Have fun getting choked out for the tenth time in your unremarkable career.

    • Joe Ballss Benner

      Ignorance must be bliss. The House has passed a number of bills funding the government. They just want the same delay of the mandate for the people that Obama gave (illegally) to businesses. Pull your head out of your ass

      • Johnny Douchenozzle

        The Republicans lost, and so will Matt Clown

        • Joe Ballss Benner

          The only people that are ‘losing’ here are American citizens. It’s a shame a populace full of dumb fucks such as yourself are too stupid to realize what’s being done right under your ignorant noses

    Don’t get me wrong I know it’s brutal but it’s boxing!!!! What are they suppose to be doing…. tap dancing??

    “I would tell the president that he needs a reality check. He should go
    serve for a year in the Middle East and see firsthand what it is like to
    be there…”

    Brown should take his own advice before he goes off criticizing anyone else.

    • Joe Ballss Benner

      Brown isn’t the one completely out of touch with reality. Obama IS

  • Doug

    Let’s run him for President also.

  • William Moore

    Last time I checked Obama didn’t shut anything down. Call your boy Boener. He will gladly tell you his role in the whole thing.

    Just stick with fighting and focus on Condit.

      Would you eat in a restaurant where the chef won’t even eat his own cooking??
      He won’t even agree to put himself and congress and the staff on the health care bill he passed for everyone else “Instead of going on Obamacare and abiding by the same laws and requirements as everyone else in it, members of Congress can now receive tax-exempt contributions from their employer (the federal government) to their health care premiums on the Obamacare exchange. This will create one set of rules for the American people and a different set of rules for Congress.”It’s not only the current uninsured that will be forced into Obamacare exchanges, but many who are currently employed as well. A recent survey of 108 of the nation’s largest corporations found 41 percent of employers expect to drop at least some of those enrolled in their employer-based health plans and put them on the Obamacare exchanges.(REMEMBER this:If you like your insurance you have now , you can keep it) UPS has already announced that it will stop offering health care coverage to some of the spouses of 15,000 workers. Thousands of currently employed individuals will now be forced onto Obamacare just like Congress except their employers are barred from giving them any additional money for health care coverage. The only difference between the two groups is that Congress has the political influence to get an exemption from the Administration while the thousands of working folks do not.
