Great fight, I had Brown at nearly 3-1, not sure why the bookies put so much stock into Erick.

I thought Erick would be a big thing, especially after the Fitch fight. He lost, but he looked good as you can losing to Fitch. Since then he seems to have gone backward, he just brawls and looks for a crazy KO. Dong fight was enough for me, Silva is simply not going to be top 5.

Hector needs a fight, if Brown gets cleared they could fight soon. Proper No. 1 contender fight.

Haha during the first round Tommy Toehold tweeted "Silva looks like a pro wrestler that just did his finisher and only got a two count."

Also how have I seen no one talking about the chuck Liddell mascot in the crowd?

That was no mascot. That was actually Chuck...

Initially I was thinking he could fight for the title, but I don't think he's quite ready for Hendricks yet. E. Silva was tagging him with left straights and hooks in his south paw stance on his way in. Hendricks would have a field day, especially once they clinch. But I already see Hendricks taking him down then wearing him out which will make his striking less effective. He's fought five full rounds against GSP + RL and had a hard fought battle against Condit. Hendricks is the real deal against the top echelon. Therefore a contender fight against Lombard or Nick Diaz would be the final tester.

This fight really reminded me of the E. Silva vs Fitch fight. I saw de ja vu. Got em down then grabbed the back gassing himself out trying to finish the RNC. Great heart for both in making it the fight it was. Had huge hope for The Bronx, Barboza and E. Silva as the new young guns. Just shows that talent alone can no longer allow you to win the way it did when Vitor, BJ were winning people in the first round. Most fighters nowadays are well conditioned. Heck even Mark Hunt started training seriously and look at how well he's doing.

R. Mac would be another great fight!

That was a ******* fantastic fight. Matt Brown is an absolute warrior. One of the best fights I have ever seen. Silva took some massive punishment, but damn he's tough, not many guys could have lasted that long under that sort of pressure. Surely Brown has to get a title shot now?

Brown needs to fight a top contender, Dana said that in the post-fight. So i'd say he is 1 big fight away

Never been so disappointed with a fighter as I have Erick Silva Guy has awful cardio and ends up staggering around the cage like a drunk.Guess all those early finishes done his career no good. Sucks cause I was huge on him first I seen him thinking he was the next big thing. Props to Brown though guy has some heart,but I don't think he'son Hendricks' level.

Unfortunately I have to agree with all of this. I've been following Silva for years, well before his time in the UFC, and I had incredibly high hopes for him. It seems now that in what should be the prime of his career he will more likely be the Wanderlei Silva of the WW division. He'll put on exciting fights regularly, but lose to top tier talents, even if he hurts them badly in the fight at at least one point.
I'll forever be a fan, but I can't see gold in his future at this point.

I also agree on Lombard/Brown... good match to make.

Brown really dodged the bullet when he herniated his back. Condit would have destroyed him. Crap fight from Silva. He just has power and speed standing he doesn't put any combinations together and has no defense. Oh and he gasses after a single round. Glad to see Brown beat his ass like that; at least he trains properly even if he has the same fighting strategy as a retard on pcp.
