Undefeated in 14 professional fights, Travis Browne is climbing toward the top of the heavyweight division.
So it comes as no surprise to see the 30-year-old Browne preparing for his first ever UFC main event bout, against Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva.
With a win over the Strikeforce veteran, Browne would open the door to a whole new level of competition.
The last time he had an opportunity like the one he will have on Friday night, Browne fought to a lackluster draw against Cheick Kongo. It will take a much better performance against Silva for Browne to earn a bout with one of the heavyweight division's elite fighters.
In addition to the heavyweight main event, the UFC on FX 5 main card features a number of other fighters who are closing in on title shots.
Let's take a look at each of the four main card bouts that will be televised on FX on Friday night.
