UFC Fight Night Live Coverage – Brown Vs. Silva

UFC Fight Night Live Coverage

It’s Saturday night UFC, which just feels right. I understand that they like doing cards mid-week because it gives them more options, but for me, the best night is Saturday night.

This card hasn’t been well-promoted at all, but there should be some good action.

Enjoy our UFC Fight Night live coverage!

1. Louis Smolka Vs. Chris Cariaso

First round saw Smolka try to use his size to move Cariaso back against the cage. He tried holding him there and it was a knee to the midsection battle. When Cariaso got off the cage, he looked great with his standup and then locked in a guillotine right at the end of the round that looked dangerous for a split second.

Cariaso is doing a great job trying to finish Smolka with submissions. He put himself in harms way with an arm bar attempt, but again, right at the end of the round, had a tight guillotine. Smolka might’ve been saved by the bell.

Much better round from Smolka. He had Cariaso on his back while in the mount. Also used the cage again to back Cariaso up. Smolka wins the round, but Cariaso wins the fight I think. Cariaso is a tough little dude.

Winner: Chris Cariaso by way of split decision

One judge had Smolka up 29-28. The first round was pretty close, so I could see it.

2. Ruan Potts Vs. Soa Palelei

Palelei was on top of Potts and landed an awkward short left hand that rocked Potts and followed up with a few more shots on the chin.

Winner: Soa Palelei by way of 1st round TKO

3. Tim Means Vs. Neil Magny

Magny had a nice takedown and then dropped Means with a punch. He moved in on Means, but instead of trying to drop him striking, went for a takedown. First round for Magny.

Means had Magny on all fours and was kneeing him to the body. But then Magny tried to get up and Means started throwing the knees to the head. Magny quickly got back to all fours and Means looked at the ref as if he forgot what the rules were.

Means is taking the fight over now. He had Magny in a similar situation with knees again and then had a choke locked in for a few seconds. But then, Magny got the takedown and also had Means’ back. Whoever wins the third round wins this fight.

Winner: Neil Magny by way of unanimous decision

Magny won 30-27, 29-28, and 29-28.

4. Daron Cruickshank Vs. Erik Koch

Cruickshank landed a right head kick, but immediately landed a left head kick right after that put Koch down. Cruickshank landed a right hand that looked to put Koch out, but he came to. All it meant is that he had to take an extra 10 or so punches and elbows to the head before it was stopped.

Winner: Daron Cruickshank by way of 1st round TKO

5. Lorenz Larkin Vs. Costas Philippou

These guys came out winging wide and hard punches. Both guys landed solidly, though Philippou looked to be getting the better of it. His left-hook knocked Larkin up against the cage which made him drop his hands and Philippou landed a straight right to end it.

Winner: Costas Philippou by way of 1st round TKO

6. Erick Silva Vs. Matt Brown

Silva threw a body kick that dropped Brown quickly. He held onto Silva so that Silva wouldn’t have the distance to rain punches down on him. He then tried grabbing Silva, but Silva maneuvered him into a neck crank. Brown fought it and it allowed him to rest. Back on their feet, Brown came straight at him with punches, knees, elbows, and two throws. Silva is wobbly with 30 seconds left. Silva has all of a sudden taken a tremendous amount of punishment. Brown’s loading up. Silva went for a Hail Mary spinning backfist but missed badly and Brown took him down again. It’s round of the year.

Brown comes after him like Mike Tyson in 1985. Silva is taking a beating. Silva finally throws back and stops Brown for a second. But Brown comes back. Silva is ready to go. He can barely stand up. Brown threw four lefts in a row; two hooks to the head and two hooks to the body. Silva landed a crazy body shot that slowed Brown down and sent him backwards for a bit. Brown transitioned from using his legs to lock around Silva’s neck, to in full mount and pounding punches, to an arm bar attempt, to a triangle attempt and then both guys exhausted as the round ends. This is nuts.

Hate to see anyone lose this, but Silva isn’t competitive anymore. He’s taking a beating and Brown has made his face a bloody mess. He had him on the ground again and was pounding him with elbows and punches and Silva turned over to take cover and it was finally stopped.

  1. No one gets me as excited for a fight as Matt Brown does. I couldn’t believe he was the underdog in this one. This guy is a monster. What a ridiculous fight.

  2. I thought the odds were weird too, like maybe Vegas knew something we didn’t know. Both guys have heart, but one guy is a monster. Jeez. Matt Brown kept coming forward and throwing with bad intentions.

    I wonder how close he is to a title fight?
