The next challenger for Johny Hendricks and his welterweight championship will be determined tonight (Sat., July 26, 2014) in the main event of UFC on Fox 12: "Lawler vs. Brown" from the SAP Center in San Jose, California, as Robbie Lawler takes on Matt Brown.

Lawler:

"Matt Brown is a really good fighter. He uses really good pace, he gets in your face. Matt looks to beat you up with elbows, knees, and kicks. He's a really good MMA fighter, so I need to be clicking on all cylinders. Wherever this fight goes, I feel like I should dominate. Every fight's a big fight; every fight is the number one contender fight; every fight is a title fight. I feel like I'm going to be the best fighter I've ever, ever, ever been before and I'm going to put on a great show."

Brown:

"Robbie is really experienced, he's been around for a long time. He's really explosive, athletic, can knock you out with one punch. I have no idea what he's going to do. He might come out and try to take me down within the first 10 seconds, he might come out and try to knock my head off. I'm going to be stronger than him everywhere. I think I can outstrike him, outclinch him, outgrapple him. If each moment is done the best that it can be done, then ultimately the fight is the best fight that you can possibly have and you can walk home with no regrets, win or lose. If I do the best I can each moment then the outcome is going to take care of itself."

MMAmania.com will provide LIVE round-by-round, blow-by-blow coverage of the entire UFC on FOX 12 fight card on fight night, starting with the Fight Pass "Prelims" matches online, which are scheduled to begin at 4 p.m. ET, right on through the FOX-televised prelims and main card action at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. ET, respectively.
