Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) March 19, 2014
Ticket Down announces that for the first time in seven years, the Ultimate Fighting Championship will return to Cincinnati, Ohio for an event. This time around, the event will be UFC Fight Night: Brown vs. Silva and will air on Fox Sports 1. The event will bring the world famous Octagon to the U.S. Bank Arena in downtown Cincinnati. The 13-fight card is currently set to be headlined by the welterweight fight between Matt Brown and Erick Silva. The co-main event will be contested in the middleweight division featuring Costa Philippou vs. Lorenz Larkin.
The last time the UFC held a show in Cincinnati was UFC 77. At this event, the hometown boy, Rich Franklin, was looking to win back the UFC middleweight title which was held by Anderson “Spider” Silva. Silva had knocked off Franklin to win the title the year before and needed just a little more than six minutes to leave the Octagon with the title around his waist. The event was also where former professional wrestler Brock Lesnar announced that he had signed a deal to fight in the UFC.
When the UFC makes its way to the U.S. Bank Arena, the main event will see one of the toughest fighters in the sport take on a fighter that once had so much potential. Brown got his chance to compete in the UFC after competing on The Ultimate Fighter. He is currently ranked as the seventh best welterweight fighter in the promotion with an 18-11 record and an impressive 6-0 record since February 2012. He has finished four straight fights including TKO wins against Luis Ramos and Jordan Mein, and KO wins against Mike Swick and Mike Pyle.
His opponent on this day will be the Brazilian, Silva. Silva is currently 16-4-1 NC in his professional career and has no alternated wins and losses in his past six fights. He was once believed to be the future of the division, but has since fallen on hard times. With a win against Brown, he will have the best win of his career.
The co-main event will feature two gritty and tough middleweight fighters. Philippou is currently ranked as the 10th best middleweight in the world and is currently 12-4-1 NC. At UFC 155, he picked up the most impressive win of his career with a TKO win against Tim Boetsch, but has since lost two straight, first to Francis Carmont and then to Luke Rockhold. Larkin will be entering the Octagon for the fourth time in his career. He is currently 14-2-1 NC and used to compete in Strikeforce. His last fight in that promotion saw the biggest win of his career with a unanimous decision win against recent welterweight title contender, Robbie Lawler.
The U.S. Bank Arena opened in 1975 and can seat more than 17,000 fans for concerts and has been the home to numerous events including professional wrestling and collegiate basketball and hockey tournaments.
