A mixed martial arts fighter was taken out on a stretcher at the end of a Saturday night fight and then to a hospital for evaluation in Cincinnati.
The referee declared Xenia , Ohio, native Matt Brown the winner by technical knockout at 2:11 of the third round at the U.S. Bank Arena. Silva was down and bloodied after a barrage of punches, elbows and kicks.
There was no update available immediately Sunday from the UFC on the Brazilian fighter's condition.
Professional mixed martial arts include elements of wrestling, judo, boxing and kickboxing by fighters wearing fingerless gloves and no headgear.
