On the whole, UFC Fight Night 40 was another unbelievable card from the UFC and delivered an exciting night of mixed martial arts action.
The event took place at the U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati, Ohio. The main event featured a welterweight bout which proved to be one of the best scraps of the year so far with Matt Brown and Erick Silva going to war.
After two rounds of brutal non-stop action, “The Immortal” managed to dig deep to secure a TKO win mid way through the third. In doing so, Brown cemented his seventh straight win in the UFC, picking up his sixth win coming by way of KO/TKO.

I think there’s a good argument for @IamTheImmortal to fight a top 3 fighter for a title shot. 7 fight win streak!

That was a great main event, but at BEST that solidifies Matt Brown at #7. Those other 6 + champ are still a class ahead of him. #realtalk
