Tonight (Sat., July 26, 2014) top-ranked welterweight “Ruthless” Robbie Lawler made sure there was no doubt about his next 170-pound title shot at Johny Hendricks by defeating gritty No. 5-ranked Matt Brown in the main event of UFC on FOX 12 from SAP Center in San Jose, California.
It was five round war that saw Lawler nailed with a ton of elbows and knees from Brown’s brutal Muay Thai game. But “Ruthless” wouldn’t go down, persevering to blast “The Immortal” with an endless onslaught of precise shots to lock up a unanimous decision victory, earning $50,000 for both fighters in a clear-cut “Fight of the Night”-winning performance from both sides.
