UFC President Dana White suggested Hector Lombard as a possible next opponent for Matt Brown after his stunning performance at UFC Fight Night 40. Of course Brown made a comeback against Erick Silva two weeks ago and knocked out Silva.
Here is a piece from that fight to give you feel of how good/ danger Matt Brown is:
Brown was hurt early with a devastating body kick by Erick Silva in the first round, but came back to make Silva pay for that kick. He landed, punches, knees, kicks and takedowns, to make sure that was a memorable fight to say the least, the end came when Brown reigned down punches from the top position. Brown with more elbows and it cuts open Silva. Brown stands over him and throwing more leather, crazy pace, Herb Dean stops the fight, this one is over.
Hector Lombard has something to say about Brown and he tweeted about it:

This would be a great match up, Dana White is on board and apparently both fighters are as well. This seems like it is only a matter of time before it’s announced.
