Dana White Says Matt Brown Is In The Mix For A Title Shot

UFC President, Dana White told the media that the third round TKO win for Matt Brown over Erick Silva at UFC Fight Night 40 in Cincinnati, Ohio, will have put the veteran in the title mix at 170 pounds, although he was quick to add that there are plenty of names looking for that next shot at the title.

Dana, speaking to the media after the event said:

“This fight definitely puts him in the spot now where we’re going to give him one of those top contenders. That’s a nasty division right now. With the departure of Georges St-Pierre, that division has become unbelievable, it’s like the wild, wild west in that division. Tons of tough guys, all scrapping to get the next shot at the title. Johny’s bicep is torn, we’re waiting for that to heal.”
