Welterweights Matt Brown and Erick Silva have agreed to meet in a UFC Fight Night main event on May 10 in Cincinnati
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.
This event will be televised live on FOX Sports 1 from U.S. Bank Arena
