Filling the night’s top-billing will be a welterweight clash between Matt Brown and Brazilian Erick Silva. The 33-year-old Brown enters the contest riding a lengthy, six-fight winning streak that dates back to February of 2012. Five of the six wins over that stretch have come via strikes. Brown was expected to take on former UFC interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit at UFC on Fox 9 in December but was forced out with a back injury. The No. 7-ranked Brown will look to establish himself as the next contender for the promotion’s 170-pound title with yet another victory. Silva, meanwhile, recently got back in the win column with a violent, 52-second knockout of Takenori Sato at UFC Fight Night 36 on Feb. 15. The Brazilian has alternated wins and losses over the course of his UFC career, with the Sato victory putting his Octagon record at 4-3. The 29-year-old has struggled against the likes of Jon Fitch and Dong Hyun Kim, but all four of his wins with the promotion have come inside the first round. UFC Fight Night 40 takes place Saturday, May 10 from the U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati. The night’s main card will air live on Fox Sports 1 with the undercard streaming via the promotion’s digital network, UFC Fight Pass.
