    Wasn't able to finish Matt Brown (who clearly took a body shot and about died), spends the rest of the round running away from him.

    After that first round? Silva is one of the biggest, most overhyped guys in the UFC after tonight.

    He got outworked by an absolute warrior, man.

    He is not a 'absolute monster' but Silva is not this bad. Brown is just a legit warrior and title contender.

    He did come real close to finishing brown though. A lot of refs would've stopped it. (it was arguably worse looking than ronda's last body shot stoppage thing)

    It looked much worst than Rousey vs McMann. That speaks more to how absurd that stoppage was not Brown being fortunate the ref didn't make another horrible call.

    True that. Dude has a lawnmower sized gas tank and was completely spent after the first 3 minutes. Keep him the hell away from the main card plz

    100% agreed!
    UFC better stop hyping up this kid...
    I know they are trying to shape up the poster boy for Brazil but it is unfair that this kid keeps getting better/more opportunity over other well deserved fighters in the div..

    The knockdown in the first was monumentally worst than Rousey/McMann and Brown was actually eating shots from Silva instead of whatever Rousey threw at Mcmann.

    Title contender lol..

    His streak will end as soon as he faces a top5 opponent. Great streak, great victory over Silva but he's reached his max.
