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.
