Robbie LawlerThere 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.

    Josh Thompson got screwed

    • Jason Priest

      How is that? Bobby Green controlled that entire fight, landed the cleaner shots, higher percentage of shots and caused the most damage. Clear victory lolz. Josh had absolutely nothing for him. Josh couldn’t deal with Green’s quickness AT ALL. He lost clearly.

      • Jon Doe

        Yeah.. but it was more like Josh lost the fight instead of Green winning the fight. For such an aggressive fighter his whole career he was doing a lot back peddling. When he actually started to engage he would just stop suddenly, like why..? Also the very minimal leg kicks he threw? Vs Nate Diaz he threw kicks repeatedly in this fight..? Strange uncharacteristic performance. Green smiling talking after getting pieced in the face 3-4 times and we all know why fighters smile after getting hit. The whole fight was just strange but props to Green, he didnt win the fight but at least he was the one pushing the fight. So..

        • Jason Priest

          He did win the fight lolz. Didn’t you hear the decision?

    • Darin

      $85k to not really fight? Sounds more than fair to me.

  • shakejunt

    strikeforce money, playboy

    My how pay has changed! This was a free non-title card. Clay Guida got 50 grand? I remember when Rich Franklin was getting around $30k when he was champ.
