There was a shot at UFC welterweight champion Johny Hendricks on the line in the UFC on FOX 12 main event on Saturday night at the SAP Center in San Jose, Calif., and Robbie Lawler and Matt Brown fought like it.
The two welterweight contenders fought it out for the duration of their five-round fight with Lawler coming out on top. The unanimous decision victory gives him the rematch against Hendricks that he relishes.
Anthony “Rumble” Johnson continued to roll through the light heavyweight class, destroying highly touted veteran Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, knocking him out less than a minute into their fight.
