Jeff Chiu/Associated Press

Matt Brown might be the hottest fighter in the UFC welterweight division. 

"The Immortal" has won six in a row and will look to make it seven when he meets Erick Silva on Saturday. Brown has scored knockouts in five of his past six fights, making him a dangerous opponent for Silva, who is only one bout removed from his first career knockout loss.
