Lawler vs. Brown: A Complete Guide to UFC Fight Night on FOX

Have you ever heard the phrase "give the people what they want"?

That should be the name of this event. UFC Fight Night on FOX: Giving the People What They Want.

When Matt Brown last fought, a star was born. He had plenty of knockouts and popularity before then, but when he recovered from early adversity to smear Erick Silva in his home town of Cincinnati, things went to another level.

All Robbie Lawler has done in 2014 is come up just short in his bid for Johny Hendricks' welterweight title after 25 minutes of Fight of the Night, phone-booth hell and then hammer Jake Ellenberger in his first bout after.

Between them, these two men are 9-1 in their last 10. Number of knockouts in those 10? Eight.

We can wax on about how much we appreciate a great guard-pass or dominant positional wrestling, but everyone loves a good knockout. That's in the DNA of any combat-sports fan. And take it to the bank: If this doesn't end in a knockout, it will be the kind of bell-to-bell slugfest that only comes along about once a year. And it's on free TV to boot.

The main event is outshining the rest of this card. It's understandable given not only the main card, but the serious lack of star and firepower that characterizes a lot of the undercard. But there are still gems to be unearthed. The co-main event pits the resurging Anthony Johnson against decidedly de-surging Antonio Rogerio Nogueira. The mega-talented Josh Thomson returns to the Octagon for the first time since his loss to ex-champ Benson Henderson in January.

There are plenty of story lines up and down the slate. Here's a full guide to the action, including information capsules, predictions and viewing coordinates for each and every contest. Time to give the people what they want.
