The public sadly did not get to see the former champion Mike Brown start his climb back to the top at WEC 51. The win did not come without controversy though as it looked to be stopped preemptively by the referee. As soon as Brown dropped Province with an uppercut, he wales on Province and gets the stoppage, but right away Province hops up to contest the stoppage. Was the stoppage clearly early, or did Province not do enough to be intelligently defending himself?
