UFC on Fox 4: "Shogun vs. Vera" took place last night (Sat., Aug. 4, 2012) from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, featuring Mauricio Rua turning in a solid if unspectacular performance in a fourth round stoppage victory over Brandon Vera.

But he didn't earn a title shot.

Instead, that honor went to Lyoto Machida, who impressed his bosses the most with a thunderous one-punch knockout of Ryan Bader in the second round of their co-main event bout.

Other action on the card saw Joe Lauzon submit Jamie Varner in a "Fight of the Year" candidate while Mike Swick returned to action with a monster knockout of DaMarques Johnson.
