Great fight. Evoked memories of Staubitz v. Tootoo in 03/09 with the number of punches thrown both ways.

Posted by King of Goons on January 14, 2014 at 10:09 PM

Excellent scrap. Win for Mike Brown. Volpatti seems to be regressing a bit, although he was throwing em'. Too bad for him that Brown was throwing harder and faster. I love the comment on this board that reads: "Can't give that to either ... Great bout". Really? Personally, I'd give it to the guy who's not gushing blood all over the ice, …but maybe I'm just weird.

Posted by Behn Wilson on January 14, 2014 at 09:16 PM

Brown recovers well following the "Miller incident" and throws the kitchen sink at an always-game Volpatti The ensuing toe to toe was short but sweet as Brown angrily punched straight through Volpatti's blitz-onslaught... on his way to gaining a gritty hard-fought victory Gutsy effort by both guys and I'm lovin' the "Rousselian" intros of late

Posted by Lvlv702 on January 14, 2014 at 08:56 PM

Great fight by both, takes two willing tuff guys to have a great fight.. I really like what brown has brought to the sharks!

Volpatti is no slouch, he can hold his own, but Brown outclasses him here with a relentless barrage. Great scrap

Posted by sedinfan on January 14, 2014 at 10:47 PM

Now that was a hockey fight, short and sweet relentless bombs. Volpatti was game, but how 9% voted draw and 5.5% voted Volpatti over Brown is beyond me. Couldn't been the fight i was watching.

Posted by gogrg on March 31, 2014 at 06:07 PM

If people would watch the whole god damn video you would see that Brown is bleeding on his nose too, thats why this is a clear draw

Posted by staceyb on January 14, 2014 at 08:39 PM

Brownie really did a number on Volpatti's schnoz.

Posted by 87CROSBY87 on January 14, 2014 at 11:39 PM

Brown Domination

Posted by rocky 1 on January 15, 2014 at 01:21 AM

Good tilt with neither guy holding back.Brown lands a couple more than Volpatti for the decision!

Posted by NAILS13 on January 14, 2014 at 08:26 PM

I give it to Brown, and his tactical use of lefts toward the end could have been much worse for Voltron if not for his early offense.

Posted by BooSanta on January 14, 2014 at 09:46 PM

Love watch these two middleweights throw. Lightening quick and with lots of leverage. Brown went to town here and ordered the red wine from Volpatti's spicket.

Posted by joe heathen on January 15, 2014 at 03:59 AM

King Buffoon,finally I agree with one of your posts..`give it to the guy not gushing blood`..indeed Brown has fast hands and hits and lands punches from different angles.No question Volpati was game for this one and he will have a different gameplan next time joe heathen says

Posted by nhlofficialsblo on January 15, 2014 at 05:20 PM

Nice scrap. Brown has some serious anger in him.

Posted by bigmike53 on January 15, 2014 at 01:33 AM

Brown just overpowers and out works Volpatti in this one.Brownie had it going in this one! Win brown.

Posted by toy boy dan on January 15, 2014 at 06:41 AM

Good exchange Brown the winner

Posted by lights out on January 14, 2014 at 08:33 PM

Slight win to Brown but both guys are to be admired. Both stood and traded and both ended up bloody but Brown with a few ending blows that gave him the victory.

Posted by lovejoy on January 15, 2014 at 02:26 AM

Yes!!! This is why I love Mike Brown!!

Posted by The Peach on January 16, 2014 at 04:15 AM

You like to punch? I like to punch too! Let's punch. High quality backyard scrap from two quality punchers.

Posted by BennyD on January 15, 2014 at 01:53 PM

Brown with the fast star and solid finish. I think the last 2 lefts by Brown are what caused the leakage from Volpatti. Brown and a 7.

Posted by ruthapuck on January 14, 2014 at 10:07 PM

As a West coast fan and Sharks fan I'm not sure if these two guys have history? Yet is seemed like they were geared to go early in the game. Anyone have any knowledge of their history? MB has played mostly in the East so my guess is that they do in the NHL and maybe prior from juniors through the Minors. Apologies I did not say anything about the fight? I have to give it to Brownie, blood on the sleeve and he took a good shot to the chin and kept coming, clear win for MB!

Posted by moneybags on January 15, 2014 at 02:56 AM

Gotta love Mike Brown...bloodied volpatti pretty good

Posted by kimo_coyote on January 16, 2014 at 08:01 PM

Damn. Brown in a classic slug fest

Posted by Mparkmark on January 15, 2014 at 11:49 AM

It was a draw up until Volpatti started Leaking; then Brown won at the end. I wonder if Volpatti broke his nose in the fight, which would explain the sudden slowing/stopping of throwing punches. Good active fight. I enjoy it when both fighters throw with purpose and anger!!

Posted by fernben8 on January 15, 2014 at 08:36 AM

'No defence here' is right on...! Quick power punches by both but Brown got 2-3 solid ones in on Volpatti's nose.

Posted by talister106 on January 15, 2014 at 08:36 AM


Posted by reryp on January 15, 2014 at 12:11 AM

Two ex canucks,I think Volpatti replaced Brown and we lost Volpatti on waivers.win Brown 2 honest scrapers miss them both.

Posted by Crazy Rabbi on January 15, 2014 at 03:27 PM

Good fight, Brown with the W.

Posted by DARCY T on January 15, 2014 at 12:24 PM

what a fight.i like brown cos he always tries to go toe-2-toe and as u can see here.it was close at the start but u could see power behind brown's rights.last 3 threw volpatti backwards and made him switch to more defensive mode...win brown

Posted by Jellyczar on January 15, 2014 at 07:02 AM

Brown wins with better and more hits...

Posted by bruins34 on January 15, 2014 at 10:14 AM

Welcome back to the win column, Mr. Brown. Great fight. Short, intense, no jersey jabs. Brown defintely got the better of things but Volpatti acquitted himself well.

Posted by youreapylon on January 15, 2014 at 09:32 AM

Amazing - love Brown, Leafs miss this guy, makes Clarkson's contract look that much worse

Posted by cpt funkypants on January 17, 2014 at 10:15 AM

Great fight. Watching it live, I thought it was even. But on replay, it is clear that Volpatti doesn't land much once Brown gets going. Loved the "Blood on the Ice" shot afterwards.

Posted by Buster11 on January 15, 2014 at 10:31 AM

Great fight!

Posted by shawn46 on January 15, 2014 at 12:27 PM

Like 2 hobo's on meth..... Or 2 delivery boys from Jimmy John's in a tip dispute...

Posted by slavv on January 15, 2014 at 12:06 PM

Holy smokes! Brown went on a rampage as if Volpatti said something about his mom. Great energy from both, but Brown was too much to handle and got the win....

Posted by ScarbroSaint on January 15, 2014 at 10:47 AM

Brown shows Aron that he should have been wearing a visor like the new bruins heavy weight champ keven. then he would have kickd brownies ass eh!

Posted by DCguru on January 14, 2014 at 08:18 PM

Rock em sockem robots. Brown win but both throwing good

Posted by HchVegasNHL57 on January 15, 2014 at 12:04 AM

Duck and chuck Armageddon. Brown just gets the better of it. Both had face period tho. Great tilt. Hoping for this more often from brown cause there are few more entertaining than him in full flight dee and ceeing like a mental person. Gave it an 8.

Posted by Great Murray on January 15, 2014 at 12:01 PM

WAY TO GO BOYS!!! Both guys landed some good shots and will be reward with lump new lumps! Makes up for Brown's last 2 BS fights. He wins a close one based on firing the last barrage and landing several.

Posted by Mosie Ledbetter on January 15, 2014 at 01:55 PM

Fight of the year candidate. Both landed some solid punches, but Brown got the better of it.

Posted by endor on January 15, 2014 at 11:57 AM

Whoa! What a fight!! Even until the end when AV simply couldn't take any more of MB. In the top 10 fights of the year, for sure.

Posted by ascottw on January 15, 2014 at 02:47 PM

nice fight. edge to brown.

Posted by knnite on January 15, 2014 at 07:02 PM

good tilt.....dance or get off the floor....take note Thornton. Brownee gets the edge....he is tough little bastard! Good show by Volpatti.

Posted by EK65 on January 15, 2014 at 12:14 PM

Neither guy wasted anytime here to the point where brown almost tripped over his own stick. With that being said he came back and did enough to deliver a win. It was Short but, highly energetic.. much like how my ex girlfriend described me in bed.. win brown and an 8

Posted by kellsteener on January 15, 2014 at 08:49 AM

Double leakage!!! Great scrap from two not-scared fighters. Take note Thornton. Edge to Brownie

Posted by Hilaker on January 14, 2014 at 10:37 PM

Great throw fest. Win to Brown. Both deserve kudos.

Posted by bberg on January 15, 2014 at 09:31 AM

now that is a hockey fight,, none of that shirt pulling hold off the guy with little jabs bullshit.Mike brown with the edge, volpatti was game though!

Posted by Opie Taylor on January 17, 2014 at 12:30 PM

Great scrap, and a class move by Brown to break Volper's off balance fall at the end...one of those fights where you're lucky not to wake up with a crowd around you.

Posted by SJ_Silas19 on January 15, 2014 at 04:15 AM

Brownie has brought toughness to the sharks with no Douglas Murray and Rayne clowe around anymore

Posted by Buddy Revell on January 15, 2014 at 06:18 PM

Brownie for the W.

Posted by Klutzleo on January 14, 2014 at 08:25 PM

Great toe to toe action. Brown on top. Volpatti's face period needed a few extra wipes. Mad respect for both

Posted by AZfromNJ on January 16, 2014 at 01:18 AM

WOW! A lot of punches and damage n a short amount of time. Don't see many scraps better these days then this one! Brown and a 9!

Posted by arabhata on January 14, 2014 at 08:19 PM

Great fight. Brown has the heavier hands.

Posted by mjm21409 on January 15, 2014 at 08:51 AM

Wow. That is three straight throw downs at verizon center with Wilson, Erskine and Volpatti. Volpatti got the short end of the stick on this one but neither guy took the easy way out. For those who said draw - when in doubt vote for the guy who goes into the box, not the guy taken to the locker room.

Posted by deathcube23 on January 15, 2014 at 09:48 AM

now that's a scrap!

Posted by doobi1 on January 15, 2014 at 05:42 PM

Tot to toe all the way. that was a good one. Kudo's to both but Brown lowered the boom at the end and gets the nod from me. A slight nod.

Posted by yokomp on January 15, 2014 at 04:21 PM

Tune up fight for Brown. He will be looking for Dustin Brown when the sharks play the kings next.

Posted by stumac71 on January 15, 2014 at 10:00 PM

A great scrap between two gamers. Gotta hand it to Brown although both guys were leaking at the end. Big left hand by Brown sealed the deal.

Posted by m1a1pt1988 on May 05, 2014 at 02:52 AM

a lot of fast punching.good stuff

Posted by jamirojeff on January 15, 2014 at 02:03 PM

Great fight ton of blood on the ice win brown rock em sock em style

Posted by redlenses on January 15, 2014 at 08:01 PM

Brown and Volpatti had a rapid fire punch fest where they both ended up bloody. Brown did more damage and had control of the fight.

Posted by SF BULLS 7 on January 14, 2014 at 08:13 PM

Great middleweight scrap. Brown with the decisive Win. Volpatti was leaking good.

Posted by j_fulch on January 15, 2014 at 03:12 PM

Glad to see the Sharks pick up Mike Brown earlier this season for a little bit more exciting fights like this one. Brown FTW.

They both looked like punching bags, but Brown landed some heavy punches.

Posted by MoneyMike1425 on January 15, 2014 at 01:31 AM

All offense no defense I love it!!

Posted by EricPreisler on January 15, 2014 at 07:18 PM

Volpatti was quick with the hands at the beginning but it didn't take brown long to catch his footing. It seems like after that it was a real good fight but brown connected a lot more punches then volpatti did. Pretty solid fight in my opinion.

Posted by dgbosley on January 16, 2014 at 06:09 PM

Holy fuckin shit

Posted by ez054098 on January 19, 2014 at 12:42 PM

Posted by yankees67 on January 15, 2014 at 07:34 AM

The fast and the furious! Ice your nose and knuckles. Win Brown

Posted by SouthPaw017 on January 16, 2014 at 12:13 AM

Brown-eye usually doesn't get cheated in his fights... He quickly goes about his business, throws with both hands, and probably has the highest punches thrown total per fight than anyone. Props to Volpatti for almost matching him...

Posted by ToddCommish on January 15, 2014 at 12:00 PM

Volpatti got a couple of quick shots in, but buckled under the barrage from Brown and ended up with more damage. Looking forward to a rematch in the Shark Tank

Posted by ToughGuyWayne on January 15, 2014 at 07:06 AM

Love it when Brown gets the jackhammer going like he did with Kris Newbury.

Posted by francoisleroux on January 21, 2014 at 12:13 AM

Alas, two former Canucks show once again why the Canucks should never have let either go. ...and Dale Wiese still has a job in the NHL... W goes to Brown. Great scrap. I hate Dale Wiese.

Posted by 3-26-97 on January 16, 2014 at 07:30 PM

Win Brown. Great fight, glad to see both dudes leaking at the end of it instead of just the loser.

Posted by brownie21 on January 17, 2014 at 11:10 AM

Very close despite the high percentage for Brown on the voting board. Great fight and both of these guys are tough as nail. Win Brown, but it was pretty close

Posted by Humper on January 15, 2014 at 09:11 AM

Fantastic fight. As Behn noted, Brown has returned to form after his no-show with Miller, and as such takes this slugfest. Both exhibited reckless abandon, each going all out in a fast and furious tempo.

Posted by Big_Fat_Dan on January 16, 2014 at 04:18 PM

Both connecting with some quick fire punches. Brown lands more and takes the W

Posted by Snoka on January 14, 2014 at 10:51 PM

Brown fed him a steady diet of knuckle sandwiches.

Posted by FHgrad99 on January 16, 2014 at 06:16 PM

That was a quick and very spirited bout. One of the best toe-to-toe exchanges I've seen in a while. Brown finished stronger and he gets the win in a very energetic fight where both guys are going to feel the effects of it the next day.

Posted by kkdowning on January 15, 2014 at 09:56 AM

Well done boys. Short and to the point with barrages of punches. Not being a real homer, win for Brown

Posted by Massive Coiler on January 14, 2014 at 08:18 PM

What a fight, they were both throwing them. Brown landed the better ones, and got the takedown, so the win goes to him, but respect to both guys for this one.

Posted by Kana on January 14, 2014 at 08:22 PM

Brown in a pretty good tilt. Both got their licks in. Wasn't sure during live action if that tapping sound was someone banging on the glass or the sound of both guys tagging each other.

Posted by pvdrummer2000 on January 15, 2014 at 02:24 AM

Awesome!!!!! Now that is a fight. Edge to Brown for drawing more blood with his bombs.

Posted by mff500 on January 15, 2014 at 10:58 AM

Great fight by two players who were more interested in throwing and connecting and used that as their defense. Volpati got the jump and a couple of good scores early , but Brown just let them fly and blew right through Volpati's punches. Definetly more anger or enthusiasm in Brown's punches. Both fighters will feel and see the effects tomorrow when they look in the mirror. Great fight and Volpati's loss by no means demeaned his effort and abilities in the fight.

Posted by fight-fan on January 15, 2014 at 07:20 PM

Great fight, both guys swinging for the fences. Brown redeems himself from the last one with a vengeance. I'll give it to him for landing a few more.

Posted by CG3 on January 14, 2014 at 11:30 PM

Awesome fight, great effort and punches landed by both fellas

Posted by ithurtssogood on January 15, 2014 at 10:01 AM

Bombs away, some heavy ones thrown here, edge to Brown.

Can't give that to either ... Great bout

Posted by rising4air on January 15, 2014 at 12:58 AM

Brown pummeled Volpatti. Volpat wasn't really into the fight.

Posted by tyrone on January 14, 2014 at 10:27 PM

As objective as I am, I can't really tell who won. Draw, and maybe even Volpatti with the best punches, but he goes away gushing.

Posted by Mounty in NC on January 15, 2014 at 02:35 AM

Great fight with both players throwing and landing several punches. Brown landed more and did a little more damage but it was a close one. Both players came out bloodied

Posted by tko234 on January 15, 2014 at 02:43 AM

not much landed awfull scrap.
