During tonight’s UFC on Fox 12 post-fight press conference, UFC president Dana White announced the post-fight bonus winners for Saturday’s show. Main event fighters Robbie Lawler and Matt Brown won “Fight of the Night”. Dennis Bermudez and Anthony Johnson each won ‘Performance of the Night”. Those four guys each won $50,000.
Brown and Lawler put on the expected war in the main event, with Lawler winning by unanimous decision. With the win, Lawler gets his rematch with UFC welterweight champion Johny Hendricks. White told the media in attendance that Brown was heading to the hospital. No reason on why he went to the hospital.
In the co-main event of the show, Johnson brutalized Antonio Rogerio Nogueira winning by TKO in just 44 seconds. It is Johnson’s second victory at light heavyweight since returning to the UFC.
In the second fight of the main card, Bermudez dominated UFC veteran Clay Guida winning by second round submission due to a rear naked choke. Bermudez extends his winning streak to seven. After the fight ended, Bermudez told Joe Rogan he wants a title shot.
Saturday’s UFC on Fox 12 took place from the SAP Center in San Jose, California.
