On Saturday, May 10, the UFC will host UFC Fight Night 40: Brown vs. Silva from the U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati.

The night’s main event features a battle of welterweights looking to move up the 170-pound ladder as red-hot Matt Brown clashes with Brazilian Erick Silva. Brown enters the contest riding a six-fight winning streak with five of the wins coming via strikes. Silva, meanwhile, has alternated wins and losses throughout his seven-fight Octagon career. The 29-year-old most recently demolished Takanori Sato in less than a minute in February.

In the co-main event, hard-hitting middleweight Lorenz Larkin will face off with gritty, Long Island-product Constantinos Philippou. Both fighters will be looking to get back in the win column after suffering defeats at UFC Fight Night 35 in January. Larkin fell on the scorecards to Brad Tavares, while Philippou was stopped by former Strikeforce champion Luke Rockhold in the first round.

The 13-fight event will kick off Saturday at 6:30 p.m. ET with three fights streaming on the promotion’s digital network, UFC Fight Pass. Four additional bouts will follow on Fox Sports 2 at 8 p.m. ET with the six-fight main card airing live at 10 p.m. ET.

The MMA Corner’s Josh Davis, Jason Schielke and Justin Fuller break down the main card in the live stream above (held on Google Plus) starting at 10 p.m. ET.
