Erick Silva leaves octagon on a stretcher following thrilling main event against Matt Brown

Jason Silva-USA TODAY Sports

Erick Silva took a severe beating from Matt Brown in the main event of UFC Fight Night Cincinnati, and was later sent to the hospital on a stretcher.

Although Matt Brown and Erick Silva put on arguably the ‘Fight of the Year' so far, it took a toll on the Brazilian, who was put on a stretcher and sent to the hospital directly after the fight.

Brown and Silva took part in a thrilling main event in Cincinnati, which featured several twists and turns, but eventually became a savage beat down on Silva, which Herb Dean did not stop until the third round.

Following the fight and Brown's in-cage interview, Silva was tended to in the octagon and then immobilized on a stretcher and moved into an ambulance.

At the post-fight press conference, UFC President Dana White revealed that Silva had been taken to the hospital to check for a "concussion and possible fractured jaw."

Hopefully Silva suffers no long-lasting damage from this fight.

Update: UFC President Dana White took to twitter to reveal that Silva suffered no significant damage and is eligible to fly home tomorrow.
