Shocking first round knockouts, head kick finishes, career-defining performances and much more were showcased at UFC Fight Night 40: "Brown vs. Silva," which took place this past weekend (Sat., May 10, 2014) inside U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Indeed, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) recently owned "The Queen City" thanks to seven decisive finishes on the 13-fight FOX Sports 1-televised card (Fight Pass and FOX Sports 2, too), with hometown favorite Matt Brown closing the show with an awesome come-from-behind win against Erick Silva in the Welterweight main event.
It was an instant classic that put Brown on the short list of top-ranked 170-pound contenders and Silva on a stretcher (watch full fight video highlights here).
Elsewhere on the card, Constantinos Philippou took everything Lorenz Larkin could muster to score an exciting -- and important -- knockout win in their co-main event Middleweight match up (watch full video highlights here), while Daron Cruickshank spoiled the Lightweight run of Erik Koch with a highlight-reel head kick and a plethora of punches.
In addition, the $50,000 surprise knockout that Johnny Eduardo notched at the expense of Eddie Wineland is represented, as well as the finishes for Justin Salas and Albert Tumenov.
Whew ... what a night! Enjoy.
