On Saturday welterweight contender Matt Brown looks for his eighth straight UFC win and a guaranteed title shot. But to get there, he needed win No. 7, and it proved no easy feat.

Check out the video of the full fight, in which Brown meets Brazilian Erick Silva in UFC Fight Night 40's main event. The May event took place in Cincinnati and resulted in one of the year’s best comebacks and a truly remarkable back-and-forth bout.

And catch Brown (19-11 MMA, 12-5 UFC) in action on Saturday, when he fights recent title challenger Robbie Lawler (23-10 MMA, 8-4 UFC) in UFC on FOX 12's network-televised headliner at San Jose’s SAP Center. A shot at UFC welterweight champion Johny Hendricks is on the line.
