UFC Fight Night: Brown vs. Silva (also known as UFC Fight Night 40) was a mixed martial arts event held on May 10, 2014 at the U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati, Ohio.[2]

Background[edit]

The event was the second time that the organization has held an event in Cincinnati, after UFC 77 back in 2007.[2]

Alexander Yakovlev and Yan Cabral were originally scheduled to face each other in a welterweight bout. However, on April 9, Yakovlev was moved to the The Ultimate Fighter Brazil 3 Finale card as he replaced an injured Mike Pierce against Demian Maia.[3] Cabral instead faced Zak Cummings at the event.[4]

William Macario was expected to face Neil Magny at the event. However, Macario was removed from the bout for undisclosed reasons and replaced by returning veteran Tim Means.[5]

Anthony Lapsley initially weighed in at 174 pounds, over the welterweight limit allowance of 171 pounds. Lapsley was given an additional two hours to lose the weight. He successfully weighed in at 171 pounds two hours later.[6]

This card featured the second most number of victories by fighters considered betting underdogs with eight, second only to UFC Fight Night 38 that featured eight underdog wins.
