UFC Fight Night 40: Main Card Staff Predictions
USA TODAY Sports

UFC Fight Night 40 has been flying under the radar, but the card boasts a number of intriguing matchups.

At the top, Matt Brown will meet Erick Silva in a battle between Top 15 welterweights. With six consecutive wins, Brown should be closing in on a shot at the 170-pound championship. If he beats Silva convincingly, "The Immortal" could be looking at a title-shot eliminator in the coming months.

Furthermore, Costas Philippou will look to get back into the win column following two straight losses. The Cyprus-born middleweight contender will meet Lorenz Larkin, who lost to Brad Tavares in his most recent outing.

As always, Bleacher Report writers Sean Smith, Riley Kontek, Scott Harris, Craig Amos and James MacDonald are here to provide their picks for this weekend's main card.
