Matt Brown vs. Erick Silva full fight video preview online for UFC Fight Night 40

In the main event of tonight's (Sat., May 10, 2014) UFC Fight Night 40: "Brown vs. Silva" showcase on Fox Sports 1 from the U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati, Ohio, Matt Brown looks to continue his strong run in the welterweight division -- he's on a six-fight win streak -- against hot young Brazilian star Erick Silva.

Brown:

"I know that I am the number one contender. I know that I am the best fighter in the welterweight division. I'm going to beat Erick Silva because I'm the stronger person mentally and physically. The key to this fight is me taking advantage of Erick Silva's mistakes. He will make mistakes and if he makes the one wrong mistake then I'm going to put him on the floor. Erick Silva has all the tools to be a world champion in this division. He just doesn't have the tools to beat me. They're going to see the best Matt Brown that they've ever seen."

Silva:

"I see that I can beat Matt Brown by submission or knockout. I'm way faster, I"m more aggressive, I'm more versatile, and I trained a lot for this fight. This is what I want, and I'm going to beat Matt Brown. After this fight, beating Matt Brown, I deserve to be in the top ten. I'm better than Matt Brown, I'm way faster than him. That's why it's going to be an exciting fight."
