Matt Brown earned himself a spot in a welterweight No. 1 contender fight tonight by surviving and thriving against Erick Silva earlier this year.

Brown appeared to be in trouble just seconds into the fight, but fought off a rear-naked choke attempt and went on to defeat Silva.

He’ll return to the Octagon this evening against Robbie Lawler at UFC on FOX 12. But, before that happens, watch Brown-Silva again in the video below. FightLine will have complete coverage of Lawler-Brown and the rest of the card.
