Welterweight Champion Johny Hendricks Takes Over @UFCONFOX Twitter Account During Main Card

LOS ANGELES - The Ultimate Fighting Championship(R) (UFC(R)) returns to the SAP Center in San Jose with an epic title elimination bout pitting two knockout artists against one another at UFC(R) FIGHT NIGHT: LAWLER vs. BROWN live on FOX on Saturday, July 26 (8:00 PM ET). In the exciting headliner, No. 1-ranked welterweight Robbie Lawler (23-10, 1 NC, fighting out of Coconut Creek, Fla.) takes on No. 5-ranked Matt Brown (21-11, fighting out of Columbus, Ohio), with the winner earning a shot at champion Johny Hendricks.

Coming off an impressive third-round finish over Jake Ellenberger, Lawler takes on the surging Brown in hopes of securing his second crack at UFC gold. Brown, who has put together one of the most impressive runs in mixed martial arts today, currently rides a seven-fight win streak, and looks to lock down the title shot he feels is long overdue.

It's often said that styles make fights, and UFC on FOX analyst Chris Lytle believes that's the case with this main event: "You've got two dynamic strikers. Robbie comes at you with one-punch knockout power, making it very exciting. And you've got Matt Brown, who is going to come at you and overwhelm you with a lot of different punches. I promise you one thing: this one is not going to go the distance. Somebody is going to get knocked out in this fight."

"These are two of the most exciting fighters in the UFC," says UFC on FOX analyst Kenny Florian. "Matt Brown is on an incredible run right now. I'm not sure if there are many guys who fight as well as he does in the clinch. And Lawler is as hot as any fighter in the UFC and has crazy knockout power. This is unbelievable matchmaking right here."

In addition to the exciting headliner, the main card features four fights total including No. 5-ranked light heavyweight Anthony Johnson (17-4, fighting out of Boca Raton, Fla.) facing Brazilian star Antonio Rogerio Nogueira (21-5, fighting out of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil). Also, No. 3-ranked lightweight Josh Thomson (22-6, 1 NC, fighting out of San Jose, Calif.) looks to put on a show in front of his hometown fans as he meets late replacement Bobby Green (22-5). The No. 13-ranked Green is currently riding a seven-fight win streak, with three of those coming since joining the UFC. Rounding out the main card, No.7-ranked featherweight Clay Guida (31-11) takes on four-time "Fight Night" bonus winner and eleventh-ranked Dennis Bermudez (14-3).

Veteran UFC announcers Mike Goldberg and Joe Rogan call the fights live from the arena, while Curt Menefee gets things started with analysts Daniel Cormier and Brian Stann. Victor Dávila and Fabricio Werdum call the action on FOX Deportes. During the main card, welterweight champ Hendricks takes over the @UFConFOX twitter account and live tweets his thoughts on all the action.

For the first time ever, the two-hour UFC FIGHT NIGHT PRELIMS also air on FOX (6:00 PM ET), featuring four more thrilling fights including second degree taekwondo black belt Daron Cruickshank (15-4) versus #14th-ranked Jorge Masvidal (26-8) in a lightweight scrap. San Jose native Kyle Kingsbury (11-5, 1 NC) returns to action in the light heavyweight division against Patrick Cummins (5-1), while welterweight Tim Means (20-6-1) fights Rio de Janeiro's Hernani Perpetuo (17-4, 1 NC). Rounding out the PRELIMS, lightweights Mike De La Torre (12-4) and Brian Ortega (8-0) square off.
