UFC On Fox 12 Main Event Set

UFC president Dana White stated during this past weekend’s UFC 173 that he needed a main event for UFC on Fox 12 by Tuesday. A few hours ago, White announced the main event for the show with the fight now having an added meaning.

Lawler rebounded from his UFC welterweight title loss to Johny Hendricks at UFC 171 in March and stopped Jake Ellenberger by third round TKO third round at this past Saturday’s show. Brown competed a little over two weeks ago at UFC Fight Night 40 defeating Erick Silva by third round TKO.

No word on when welterweight champion Johny Hendricks will return as he had arm surgery following the Lawler, but it is expected he will return sometime in the fall.

UFC on Fox 12 takes place on Saturday, July 26 from the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California.
