Tonight’s (Sat., July 26, 2014) UFC on FOX 12 co-main event was quite the stark contrast to its main event, where Robbie Lawler and Matt Brown engaged in a five round war (watch highlights here).
The lead-in fight between surging No. 5 contender Anthony Johnson and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira lasted only 44 seconds, however, as “Rumble” used a barrage of absolutely devastating uppercuts to put out “Lil’ Nog’s” lights early in the first round.
It was a decisive win that has “Rumble” set to contend for the 205-pound title in 2015. Watch the video highlights of his short-but-sweet victory courtesy of UFC on FOX below:
