He started boxing in 2005 before transitioning to mixed martial arts at the age of 19 and had 6 amateur fights before turning pro in 2014.[3]

Brown had 6 fights in the promotion winning all 6 by stoppage in the first or second round. He won the Ring of Combat welterweight belt by beating Mike Winters by second-round TKO.
