    Post Fight Facts according to mmajunkie as well:

    UFC on FOX 12 at San Jose’s SAP Center produced a variety of results from quick knockouts to slick submissions to, in the event headliner, an unforgettable five-round war between Robbie Lawler (24-10 MMA, 9-4 UFC) and Matt Brown (19-12 MMA, 12-7 UFC).

    A chance to challenge UFC welterweight champion Johny Hendricks was on the line, and neither Lawler nor Brown wanted to leave anything to chance. They combined for 162 significant strikes landed over their 25-minute battle, which ultimately saw “Ruthless” walk away the victor by unanimous decision.

    Even though nine of the 12 bouts on the card ended in a decision, the card featured a number of notable outcomes, including a new king of the quick knockout. For more on that, plus other facts and figures to come out of the UFC’s 12th network television offering, here at 45 post-fight facts about UFC on FOX 12.

    General
    Lawler, Brown, Anthony Johnson and Dennis Bermudez earned $50,000 UFC on FOX 12 fight-night bonuses.

    UFC on FOX 12 drew an announced attendance of 11,482 for a live gate of $735,317.

    Betting favorites went 10-2 on the card.

    Total fight time for the 12-bout card was 2:35:20. The longest event of 2014 thus far was UFC Fight Night 36, which saw 2:53:32 of total cage time.

    Main card
    Lawler improved to 5-1 since making his return to the UFCin February 2013 for a second stint. The lone defeat during that stretch came to welterweight champion Hendricks.

    Lawler’s two takedowns landed in the contest raised his takedown accuracy to a stellar rate of 80 percent (16 of 20) under the UFC banner.

    Brown had his career-high seven-fight winning streak snapped for his first defeat since November 2011.

    Brown suffered his first decision loss since Sept. 6, 2008 – a span of 2,149 days (nearly six years) and 16 fights.

    Brown has been rewarded with at least one fight-night bonus in his past four UFC appearances for a total of $250,000.

    Anthony Johnson (18-4 MMA, 9-4 UFC) extended his career-high winning streak to eight fights.

    Johnson has earned seven of his nine UFC victories by knockout.

    Johnson became the first fight in UFC history to earn four knockout victories in less than one minute each. Along with his 44-second finish in San Jose, “Rumble” has stopped Yoshiyuki Yoshida, Tommy Speer and Chad Reiner before the 60-second mark of Round 1.

    Antonio Rogerio Nogueira (21-6 MMA, 4-3 UFC) suffered just the second knockout loss of his career and his first since Feb. 24, 2007 – a span of 2,709 days (more than seven years) and 12 fights.

    Dennis Bermudez’s (14-3 MMA, 7-1 UFC) seven-fight UFC winning streak is the longest active streak in the featherweight division. It is also the third longest active streak in the UFC overall behind light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones (11) and middleweight kingpin Chris Weidman (eight).

    Bermudez’s seven UFC featherweight victories are tied with Chad Mendes for the second most in divisional history behind Dustin Poirier (eight).

    Bermudez improved to 7-0 since losing to Diego Brandao at The Ultimate Fighter 14 Finale.

    Bermudez’s two takedowns landed in his victory gave him a total of 28 during his UFC tenure, the most of any fighter in featherweight history.

    Bermudez was awarded the fifth fight-night bonus of his UFC career, the most of any featherweight in company history.

    Clay Guida (31-15 MMA, 11-9 UFC) fell to 2-2 since dropping to the UFC featherweight division in January 2013.

    Guida’s three takedown attempts in the fight gave him a total of 146 during his UFC career, the most of any fighter in organizational history.

    Guida suffered his first submission loss since Dec. 12, 2009 – a span of 1,687 days (more than four years) and 10 fights.

    Bobby Green’s (23-5 MMA, 4-0 UFC) four-fight UFC winning streak is tied for the fourth longest active streak in the lightweight division behind Khabib Nurmagomedov (six), T.J. Grant (five) and Myles Jury (five).

    Green extended his career-high winning streak to eight fights.

    Green has earned all four of his UFC victories by a different method (split decision, unanimous decision, TKO and submission).

    Josh Thomson (20-7 MMA, 3-3 UFC) has suffered six of his seven career losses by decision.

    Thomson fell to 0-3 in fights that are deemed a split decision.

    Preliminary card
    Jorge Masvidal (27-8 MMA, 4-1 UFC) has earned three of his four UFC victories by decision.

    Masvidal has landed a greater number of significant strikes than his opponent in eight of his past nine fights that have gone the distance.

    Daron Cruickshank (15-5 MMA, 5-3 UFC) fell to 3-3 in his past six UFC appearances.

    Patrick Cummins (6-1 MMA, 2-1 UFC) registered his second UFC victory in a 49-day span. He also defeated Roger Narvaez at UFC Fight Night 42 on June 7.

    Cummins earned the first decision victory of his professional career.

    Cummins was credited with 10 takedowns landed, the second most ever in a single UFC light-heavyweight fight. He fell just one short of Rodney Wallace’s record of 11 takedowns landed, which came in a loss to Jared Hamman at UFC 111.

    Kyle Kingsbury (11-6 MMA, 4-5 UFC) suffered his fourth consecutive loss, extending the longest stretch of defeats during his career.

    Kingsbury announced his retirement from professional MMA following the event.

    Hernani Perpetuo (17-5 MMA, 0-2 UFC) has suffered both of his UFC losses by decision.

    Brian Ortega (9-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) has earned his past three victories by submission.

    Ortega’s standing rear-naked choke submission marked the first standing submission finish in UFC competition since Brad Scott defeated Michael Kuiper at UFC Fight Night 30.

    Mike De La Torre (12-5 MMA, 0-2 UFC) has suffered four of his five career losses by submission.

    Tiago Trator (19-4-2 MMA, 1-0 UFC) extended his career-high winning streak to 10 fights.

    Akbarh Arreola (22-8-1 MMA, 0-1 UFC) suffered a decision loss for the first time since Aug. 25, 2011 – a span of 1,066 days (nearly three years) and five fights.

    Gilbert Burns (8-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) earned the first decision victory of his career after stopping his previous seven opponents inside the distance.

    Andreas Stahl (9-1 MMA, 0-1 UFC) had his nine-fight winning streak snapped for the first defeat of his professional career.

    Joanna Jedrzejczyk (7-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) has earned four of her seven career victories by decision.

    Juliana Lima (6-2 MMA, 0-1 UFC) has suffered both of her career losses by decision.

    Steven Siler (23-13 MMA, 5-4 UFC) competed in his ninth UFC featherweight bout, the second most of any fighter in divisional history behind Dustin Poirier (10).

    Siler suffered a third consecutive loss for the first time in his career.

    Siler has suffered three of his four UFC losses by decision.

    AJ needs to fight higher ranked opponents at this opponent. There are only 2 fights that make sense with a 3rd option more of a showcase than anything.

    Rashad is expected back in the Fall at some point. That fight could headline a Fight Night and could be for the #1 contenders spot.

    Glover doesn't have a fight booked that I'm aware of and that fight could be a solid co main event.

    The 3rd option would be more so to pad AJs highlight reel in my opinion and that would be a fight with Shogun. It would be an opportunity for AJ to beat a legend and a top 10 guy.

    And thinking about it, an off the wall 4th option would be a fight with Goose when he returns.

    Robbie is next in line for a WW title shot and that fight should be an epic rematch. But I will say I think Robbie fought down to the level of competition and didn't look great and hopefully he does better against Bigg Rigg.

    Matt Brown is a fucking warrior. I would pay to watch him fight a tree at this point. With Nick Diaz coming back, that would be fire works and an excellent main event for a fight night. But I'm not sure how quick of a turn around Brown would need for that fight with Diaz ready to fight.

    The original Condit fight would be great but I'm not sure on Condits timetable for a return. But I have a feeling that Brown is gonna be out a bit so trying to pair him up with anyone right now wouldn't work out.

    Bermudez looked great against Clay although I don't consider Clay a top 10 fighter. I saw some holes in Dennis game that could be exploited. He seemed much bigger than Clay too which helped in the grappling in the second round. There are plenty of fight for Dennis at this point though within the division. But let's not fast track the kid here at this point. A fight with a returning Dennis Siver, a fight with Jeremy Stephens or the highest I would go is a fight with Ricardo Lamas.

    And give Bobby Green and Jorge Masivdal a fight.
    Last night should of been Rumble vs Teixiera, Teixiera elected for knee surgery. Dont know when he will return but that fight should of already happened.

    Rumble vs Bader/OSP winner? I think he's ahead of that personally needs one of the mentioned below but if he has to beat Bader or OSP to become a sure shot contender so be it:
    Rumble vs Gus
    Rumble vs loser of Jones/DC
    Rumble vs Rashad for #1 contender? In my eyes he's right behind Gus already tho.

    Those all would be great fights, definitely not total domination like we saw against Lil Nog, but great potential fights, and if he did so happen to dominate... holy shit.

    Matt Brown vs Nick Diaz for sure, good fight back for Diaz.. trash the Silva plans. That would be a better 2nd fight or latter for him not one to knock the rust off.

    I don't want to see Rumble vs Rashad for #1 contendership purely because I'm not ready for the possibility of Rashad/ Jones 2 yet. I don't think Evans has shown anything which suggests he will threaten Jones at this point in time.

    Rumble is ahead of him for #1 contender I feel anyways. They dont NEED to fight, but I think Rumble can handle all Rashad has to offer if they do.

    Rumble vs Gus/Teixiera is only thing that makes sense really and Teixiera already backed out of fighting AJ once. There isnt much in terms of Rumble to do with everybody hurt/already fighting. Gus and Glover both have knee injuries/knee surgery to recover from and I dont see anybody else ready to go that would help put AJ up there for a title shot. Bader/OSP winner I guess but I think he's ahead of them too. 1-2 more top level victories and I think you gotta put his name in there for a title shot, no if's and's or but's about it

    Given Rumble's history with eye injuries, Im really not eager to see him fight Jones. Im sure Jon would find a way to "accidently" poke his eye again, and I have no desire to see someone lose their eyesight permanently.
