Last weekend fight fans saw just why Matt Brown’s nickname is Immortal. The Ohio native stepped into the cage in the main event of UFC Fight Night 40 opposite Erick Silva. After a kick to the body dropped Brown in the first, he fought his way back to secure a third round KO over Silva. In the co-main event we saw Costas Philippou defeat Lorenz Larkin via KO in the first.
