Brown vs. Silva to main event UFC Fight Night in Cincinatti


Two of the UFC's rising welterweights stars have been booked to main event the UFC's return to Cincinnati when Matt Brown takes on Erick Silva:

Cincinnati's UFC Fight Night event on May 10 now has a main event and it should be one to remember, as Ohio native Matt "The Immortal" Brown fights in his home state for the first time since 2009 against rising Brazilian star Erick Silva in a five round welterweight bout.

On one of the most impressive winning streaks in the sport today, Brown has won six straight, with five of his wins coming by way of knockout. Returning to the Octagon for the first time since his 29 second finish of Mike Pyle last August, Brown will be in tough with the dynamic Silva, who has finished all four of his UFC wins, most recently needing just 52 seconds to defeat Takenori Sato in February and pick up a performance of the Night award.

I never said that Silva couldn't or wouldn't win. That's really irrelevant to my post. I think Matt shoulda gotten a ranked opponent. He deserves it.

In all fairness they gave him Condit. Not their fault he got hurt. But I agree, he should have a higher ranked opponent now. Like someone else mentioned, they could have waited 2-3 weeks to see if Rory would be good to go.

Stop giving silva all this attention!!! He's a can crusher, nothing more !!! He's had a step up in competition twice and been destroyed twice. Pyle vs silva would of made more sense. I would of waited for a top ten if I was brown...... He's not got one in this win streak ! And Eric silva isn't even top 15.

Any Matt brown fan knows how much of a badass he is. He will fight anybody. He knew there was an ohio card coming up so I'm sure he didn't care who he fought and asked to fight anybody on that card. Step down or not, Eric silva isn't an easy fight, Matt brown don't give a fuck tho. He may be the most mentally badass dude in the UFC. Will fight ANYONE.

Silva is going to cut through Brown like butter! I like Brown, but styles make fights, and this is a horrible match-up for him stylistically.

Kind of a stepdown for Matt, he was in many peoples eyes ready for a contender fight(although I didn't agree since he has no top 10 wins). This is a great fight stylistically but they should've finally given a top 10 opponent for Matt
