News Americas, FORT LAUDERDALE, FL, Mon. Feb. 13, 2023: Jamaican American Randy Brown lost is welterweight fight during the UFC 284 event at RAC Arena on February 12, 2023, in Perth, Australia.
Brown, (16-4 MMA, 10-5 UFC), was bested by Jack Della Maddalena of Australia. In front of his home city of Perth, Maddalena (14-2 MMA, 4-0 UFC), was aggressive from the opening bell, as he stalked the quick and rangy Brown.

His win streak is now at 14. With the defeat, Brown who was born to Jamaican parents in Massachusetts, but grew up in Spanish Town, Jamaica, has a four-fight winning streak snapped.
Brown began his professional fighting career in 2014, making his professional debut at Ring of Combat 48.
