After a spectacular night of MMA action, UFC president Dana White awarded Robbie Lawler, Matt Brown, Anthony Johnson (pictured) and Dennis Bermudez each an additional $50,000 for their special performances Saturday night at “UFC on FOX: Lawler vs. Brown.”
As main eventers are supposed to do, Lawler and Brown put on the best showing of the evening. The welterweights took home “Fight of the Night” honors.
Lawler also scored a unanimous decision victory to earn next dibs at Johny Hendricks’ crown.
Johnson made quick work of Antonio Rogerio Nogueira to earn his “Performance of the Night” check.
Bermudez’s rear-naked choke over Clay Guida was good enough for the other “Performance of the Night.”
UFC on FOX 12 took place inside SAP Center in San Jose, California.
