Sometimes, a fight occurs which shakes up a division's foundations. Other times, the bout confirms what most people suspected they already knew. Such was the latter on July 26, when "Ruthless" Robbie Lawler and "The Immortal" Matt Brown went toe-to-toe in the main event of UFC on FOX 12 in San Jose.
