Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Booking Update: Joe Lauzon vs. Michael Johnson Added to ‘UFC on FOX Sports 1 1′

(Props: @UFCFighterArt)

The last time we saw Joe Lauzon, the UFC lightweight veteran lost a bloody, gutsy decision against Jim Miller at UFC 155, fighting gamely to the last bell after spending the entire first round being hit with every strike ever invented in the history of martial arts. The resulting Fight of the Night award gave Lauzon his twelfth UFC performance bonus — and his tenth in his last ten fights (!) — placing him back into a tie with Anderson Silva as the most bonus-worthy fighter in UFC history. But the loss also dropped Lauzon’s 2012 record to 1-2, which means it’s rebound-time once again.

Multiple sources are reporting that Lauzon will return to the Octagon in a hometown appearance at UFC on FOX Sports 1 1 (August 17th, Boston), where he’ll face TUF 12 finalist Michael Johnson. Johnson could use a victory here even more than Lauzon; with losses to Reza Madadi and Myles Jury in his last two fights, Johnson’s back is squarely against the wall.

Fun fact: Lauzon has never lost two consecutive fights in his entire career. Fun opinion: He’s probably going to keep that streak alive in Boston. The question is, which end-of-night bonus is he most likely to earn here?

my co-worker's step-sister makes $76 every hour on the laptop. She has been fired for eight months but last month her income was $21853 just working on the laptop for a few hours. Read more on this site

If u don't like joe ur not an mma fan. He's the type a guy after you fight him u find out wat ur made of. It's unlike any experience you can never have, and if you can't keep up he'll break you. He's very good like a B+ guy, but wen it come to the A guys he just can't handle it. Still I rather watch him joe then gsp's BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOIRING BITCH ASS, just fucking retire already, stop jon fitching the top 5 guys.

Joe is a class act. Him and dany come to bishops for sparring and they are very down to earth. no egos. On a side note, is anyone else of the opinion that if dany lauzon beats John gunderson (over 50 pro fights) at WSOF 3, he will get the invite back to the big leagues??

@coolsnow7: I didn't say he got a bonus in every one of his last ten fight...I said he got ten bonuses in his last ten fights. It's true. He got two in the Varner fight.

At Ufc144, he did not get a "of the night" bonus. He got headkick ktfo into oblivion by Pettis. That among his last ten fights.
