UFC returned San Jose on Saturday night, at the now SAP Center for their 12th installment of UFC on FOX. The UFC on FOX 12 main event lived up to the hype, and delivered a 5-round back and forth battle between two top welterweights Matt Brown and Robbie Lawler fighting for the #1 contender spot. The end result was a unanimous decision win for “Ruthless” Robbie Lawler, and earning himself a rematch against welterweight champion, Johny Hendricks.
The Fight of the Night bonus, no surprise, went to the main event fighters Robbie Lawler and Matt Brown, $50,000 each.
The Performance of the Night bonuses ($50,000 each) went to Anthony Johnson for his 44 second knockout of Antonio Rogerio Nogueira. And Dennis Bermudez for his 2nd round submission over Clay Guida.
The attendance at SAP Center for UFC on FOX 12 was 11,482 for a live gate of $735, 317.
