On Saturday, Matt Brown again defied the odds when finishing Erik SIlva in their main event bout at UFC Fight Night 40. That took him to a seven-fight winning streak, finishing all but one in that immense run.

Clearly, it's time he met a higher calibre of opposition. His opponent Silva is a great fighter, but it's about time he fought someone of real class. Brown was scheduled to meet former Interim Welterweight Title holder Carlos Condit before a back injury forced him out.

'The Immortal' has been vocal on wanting a title shot in the near future. All respect to his previous opponents in Silva, Mike Pyle and Jordan Mein, they are not in the standard of what Brown will have to face in order to gain a title shot.

Speaking on Brown after his win over The Brazilian, UFC President Dana White said:

"We are going to give him something big, something fun and he is always fun to watch.He gets better every time he fights and he killed it tonight."

On the matter of his next opponent, White believes that Hector Lombard could be up next. At the press conference White said:

"Let me get home and figure it out. He’s not there yet because he was injured. We’re going to give him something big, maybe Hector Lombard is next."

Lombard would be an excellent fight for Brown. The Cuban is ranked number five in the Welterweight rankings and has a huge reputation. That was gained prior to signing with the UFC, when going on a nineteen fight win streak capturing Bellator's Middleweight title.

Since signing to the UFC he has gone 3-2, however, he is 2-0 since dropping from Middleweight to 170lbs. His latest performance against Jake Shields was an extremely impressive and dominant one.

A fight between Brown and Lombard could be a thriller. Both have the killer instinct to go for the finish and love to keep the fight on the feet.
