UFC Fight Night Brown vs Silva Live Results

Sports Vortex

UFC FeaturedTonight the UFC makes it’s way to Cincinnati, Ohio for the latest in its Fight Night cards.  The main event features two welterweight fighters looking to get closer to a title shot with a win.  On one side of the octagon you have Matt Brown who is riding a six fight win streak with 5 knockouts in that span.  Across from him will be a top prospect by the name of Erick Silva.  Silva has shown himself to be a very explosive fighter with multiple wins coming in under a minute.  The flip side of that is his over eagerness to finish can cost him to take unnecessary counter punches, most notably leading to his loss to Dong Hyun-Kim back in October.  Brown on the other hand has shown himself to be a very durable fighter, having never been knocked out in his 29 career fights.  His career had a bit of a resurgence going into his 2012 fight with Chris Cope where it appeared he might just be in a do or die situation entering into the fight with a mediocre record.  However that fight was the first in his current win streak and he has reinvented himself since.

I feel like whenever Silva fights I find myself saying the same thing.  He needs to be patient and fight smart.  Brown is the type of fighter who just because he’s hurt is far from finished and lately always finds a way to come back and knockout his opponent.  Brown is a very strong grappler in addition to being a good boxer but as a purple belt has succumbed to better grapplers a few times in the past.  For Silva to win he’ll need to be patient with his striking and use them to set up potential opportunities to get the fight to the ground.  It’ll be there where Silva will have his best chance at securing a victory but far from a sure thing.  For me though I want to see that more mature side of Silva and a changed more patient approach before I can see picking him over guys in the top ten.  That said I think Brown’s toughness and durability will allow him to say in the fight and he’ll use his boxing to catch a wreckless Silva to get the win.

The Co-Main event features a pair of middleweights trying to find their way into the top ten.  You Costas Philippou trying to rebound from the first two fight losing streak of his career.  His opponent Lorenz Larkin is looking to get back into the win column himself following a disappointing decision loss to Brad Tavares.  Philippou utilizes his strikes in order to overwhelm his opponents in most of his fights but has shown to have questionable cardio at times and to have a weakness to wrestlers.  Larkin is a solid striker with a good chin and is pretty good at getting the fight to the ground.  That said I got to think that Lorenz Larkin is going to be able to outwork Philippou and secure a decision victory.
