A Matt Brown win will make him a contender, a loss will turn him into gatekeeper.

    This is it for Brown, do or die.

    Personally, I think Silva will dispatch of him quite easily, but Brown has always found a way to prove me wrong.

    not really, one loss doesnt kill a career... he can lose tonight then post 3 or 4 wins in a row and it be right back in the conversation for a title shot

    With a win or loss, would still want to see him fight Condit.

    Brown beats the hell out of Silva.

    Everything Brown does, Silva does better. Silva by KO within 3 rounds you'll see. The bookies aren't stupid they know what's up.

    A gatekeeper? He's ranked around number 15th, another loss and he's out of the rankings for good. And he'll become the next Brandon Vera.

    Silva's loss to DHK made him the same.

    he's 33, and those 3-4 wins will take him two years to achieve. it's do or die for him contender-wise. but let's be honest, he's a lytle type fighter: he's there to put on entertaining fights, not to win titles.

    And there's nothing wrong with that. Silva won't ever win a belt either.

    Even if he wins, Brown is a gatekeeper. Neither he nor Silva is touching gold in the UFC WW division.

    Yeah because you were the first one to crack this tough equation

    Brown + Erick = no UFC WW champs

    Maybe if Hendricks is asleep in bed and doesn't see it coming. Nah actually Brown would probably still be too loud coming up the stairs

    I actually wondered if you'd be lame enough to go for this response. Thanks for not disappointing
