UFC On Fox 12: Lawler vs. Brown takes place this Saturday night, and obviously we are excited for the potential violence that the main event promises. We spend in the first half of this episode previewing all of the matches on the show.

Then we get into the week's MMA news including Vitor Belfort's conditional license to fight for the UFC Middleweight title, Bellator 122, last week's UFC results and Conor McGregor's next opponent.

Oh, and the Alexander Gustafsson injury came in right after our broadcast, so unfortunately we couldn't comment on it on air. What are our current thoughts on that?  Well, it sucks.
