It doesn't matter whether he's a favorite or an underdog. Matt Brown keeps on winning.
At UFC Fight Night 40 on Saturday, "The Immortal" broke down Erick Silva to earn a seventh consecutive win in the welterweight division. Critics can continue to question his technique and athleticism, but it is becoming hard to argue against Brown being one of the top contenders in the 170-pound class.
With so many wins in a row, it almost seems criminal that he isn't lined up for a title shot. However, he does still need to prove himself against a Top 10 welterweight.
Here are the fights that should be next for Brown, Silva and the rest of the UFC Fight Night 40 competitors.
