Randy Brown critical of decision win over Francisco Trinaldo: ‘I know I can do better’

Randy Brown is not happy with how things went down in his return to the octgaon.

The welterweight picked up a unanimous decision win over veteran Francisco Trinaldo in the co-main event of Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 211 in Las Vegas. But despite getting his hand raised and improving his winning streak to four, Randy Brown (16-4 MMA, 10-4 UFC) wasn’t content with his showing.

“I did what I had to do,” Brown said on the ESPN+ post-fight show. “I faced some adversity. I’m tired of facing adversity, but I’ve got to do what I’ve got to do. I’ve got to give him his props, man. Francisco Trinaldo, Uncle Trinaldo – the dude is tough. He’s tough, and he was a good test for me. Just his experience was crazy. His body was tough – just dense. Most guys, you hit them with certain stuff, and they react. They back up. He did not take a step backwards at all. Shout out to him.

“I’m not overly thrilled, because I know I can do better. But the performances will be there. You guys are happy, I noticed Dana (White) was happy. I’m my biggest critic, but that’s how it is.”

With consecutive wins over Alex Oliveira, Jared Gooden, Khaos Williams and now Trinaldo, Brown currently is on the best run of his UFC career. The 32-year-old hopes to log a third fight in 2022 and return to the octagon close to the end of the year.

“I’m ready,” Brown said. “I just want to bounce back in, get one more (fight) for the year. I just want to keep moving forward and keep running it up. Let me get a check. I want to take care of me and my family. That’s what it’s about.

“I’m ready to bounce back and continue the journey and just keep laying down the legacy.”
