James Wilks and Matt Brown at UFC 105SEATTLE – Matt ‘The Immortal’ Brown (16-11-0) continued his UFC resurgence with a second-round knockout win over Mike Swick (15-5-0) in the opening main card fight at UFC on Fox 5 from the KeyArena in Seattle.

Brown was looking to come forward off the opening bell and was hit by some stiff resistance from Swick, but he persevered and got the takedown, immediately looking for the neck of Swick. He was able to lock in a D’arce choke and was desperately trying to hold on as Swick planned his escape.

Swick broke free, but was quickly locked in a triangle, but the 33-year-old showed his patience to bring the fight back to the feet.

Brown came out attacking in the second round, and landed a solid elbow on Swick, who was looking wobbly on his feet. Brown sensed this coming forward, landing a left hook that sent Swick tumbling, but before he could hit the ground, Brown landed a flush right hand knocking Swick out cold. The referee quickly ran in waving the fight away at 2:31 of round two.

The win was Brown’s fourth in succession, while Swick has lost three of his last four UFC fights.
