UFC on Fox 12: Main Card Staff Predictions for Lawler vs. Brown

One bout removed from a narrow loss to Johny Hendricks, Robbie Lawler is back in the running for a shot at the welterweight championship. With a 4-1 record since returning to the UFC roster, Lawler will earn a rematch with Hendricks should he defeat Matt Brown on Saturday.

Although he is an underdog heading into UFC on Fox 12, Brown has been on a roll and is deserving of this big opportunity. The Immortal has won seven in a row, most recently stopping Erick Silva in May.

In addition to the welterweight title shot eliminator, UFC on Fox 12 will feature a number of battles between contenders. Anthony Johnson and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira will meet in the light heavyweight division, Clay Guida and Dennis Bermudez will meet in the featherweight division, and Josh Thomson will meet Bobby Green in the lightweight class.

As always, Bleacher Report's own Riley Kontek, Craig Amos, Scott Harris, James MacDonald and Sean Smith are here to provide their predictions for the entire main card.
