Brown is a warrior my god. Brown vs Lombard or winner of Ellenberger/Lawler pleasee

Silva really needs to improve his cardio or he will never break the top ten at WW.

The amount of accumulative damage Silva took was cringe worthy, I still dont feel Brown is a serious threat to take the title but he's a fun fighter to watch and he keeps improving with every fight.

I like the dude.

...Wow! What a fight! Amazing pace! Matt Brown was ultra-impressive. Nasty striking on both ends but Matt's were really brutal, especially his elbows. Brown is such a beast. Easily one of the best fights so far this year...

Silva clearly has more fast twitch muscles which makes him a beast in explosive movements, but at the same time somewhat penalties him in cardio. He tried to finish Brown after that body shot early in the first round and expended all his energy trying to do so. Crazy fight, congrats to Matt for a good performance. Both fighters showed plenty of heart.

I really dont know why but i still cant get on the Matt Brown train. He is a complete badass but i think its cos he comes off as a bit of a hick.

That said 7 fight winning streak probab;y deserves a title shot. IMO Hendricks would eat him alive.

That was probably the most predictable fight you can imagine, silva has no gas tank and average boxing and a bad bottom game. Matt brown was always gonna win by KO and I cashed in on that

Silva is another one round fighter. He looks like a beast for a round, but then gasses. His body can't keep up with the pace he sets.

Lol I like how Brown kept making awkward excuses and looked confused by some of the replays. Don't worry about it man, you won! Nobody is putting you down for getting dropped. I'm more impressed with the fact that he just keeps coming no matter how hurt he is.

Good reffing by Herb Dean. He didn't stop it in the first and gave Silva every opportunity to get back into the fight as well.

Well, that fight definitely lived up to the hype. The way Matt Brown flows through the strikes in his combos is a thing of beauty. It's almost always the right strike at the right time to do damage and setup his opponent for the next strike, it's ******* awesome to watch. Also nice how he cuts off the cage to put constant pressure on Silva, giving him no time to think and herding him right into the path of his strikes. Man that was sweet fight!

I like Matt Brown and his 7 fight win streak is impressive. But the guy is still yet to fight a top 10 guy. So if he gets a title shot after beating Silva that is just foolish. He needs to fight a top 5 guy like Condit, Lawler, Lombard or hell anyone in the top 10.

Also how amazing would a Brown Vs Diaz fight be

IMO, he just takes too much damage and cant keep up. I dont think its cardio as much as damage taken.
