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

Lauzon/Pettis Booked for UFC 144, Poirier/Koch for 143

(A classic battle of style vs. SUBstance.)

Fresh off his upset Submission of the Night victory over Melvin Guillard at UFC 136, Joe Lauzon was quick to respond when called out by former WEC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis, who scored a decision victory over Jeremy Stephens at the same event. Well it looks like “Showtime” will be getting his wish, as the two have been booked to lock horns at UFC 144, in what could easily be a Fight of the Night match-up. Prior to their 136 victories, Lauzon scored a quick and nasty kimura victory over Kurt Warburton at UFC Live 4 whereas Pettis was wrestlefucked into oblivion by Clay Guida at the TUF 13 Finale in June. This is the point where I’d normally say that a victory here would rocket either man near the top of the lightweight ladder, but considering that the division is currently more crowded than a So-Cal Quinceanera, let’s just say that a victory here will keep either man…from losing.

In other fight booking news, a battle between top featherweight contenders Dustin Poirier and Eric Koch has been set for UFC 143 in February, which also features the probable welterweight number 1 contender match between Josh Koscheck and Carlos Condit. Poirier most recently scored a brilliant submission via D’arce over Pablo Garza at the inaugural UFC on FOX card. Koch, on the other hand, is coming off a gritty decision victory over TUF 13 winner/existential caveman Jonathan Brookins in Brookins’ featherweight debut at UFC Fight Night 25. Depending on the outcome of the upcoming Aldo/Mendes clash at UFC 142, we could easily be looking at the next challenger to the title right here.

You know the deal, who takes these babies?

Danga, tell your mother I need her to drop her puss off in my lap for old times sake. Love, Dad.

Cool article, bro. Other than the fact that Pettis called out Joe.

El Guapo- November 16, 2011 at 11:34 am
Wait, wait, so Skeletor is actually serious about that whole hate Danga shtick? I thought he was just f'kn around.
MMAposeur- November 16, 2011 at 11:27 am
I dunno, Lauzon's weakness looks like it's the more technical strikers / grapplers... he has fared well against the stronger more dynamic fighters. They're both purple belts so...
Same goes for Pettis though. Has he really been tested? Yes. And Guida beat him.
Go Joe!

@Harry Sack - Finally! Someone gets it
Harry Sack- November 16, 2011 at 11:10 am
Danga - Fuck you, and your unlimited breadsticks. You wish you got paid period. Go back to your shitty apartment in your shitty neighborhood, in your shitty town, with your shitty-fat girlfriend who treats you like shit and stop writing. Thats all Skeletor is trying to say. Lighten up.
Walrus- November 16, 2011 at 10:29 am
Ok, so you got Edgar vs. Henderson, Diaz vs. Cerrone and Pettis vs. Lauzon, now how about...

Guida vs. Maynard?

Melvin Guillard vs. Denis Siver?

2 cracking fights to look forward to. I'm gonna lean towards the Roufus boys in these ones. But both fights could go either way.

Hey does "suck my dick" equate to a esteem booster? I'd like to hear that one bro....
Condit is getting fucked. He was suppose to fight BJ, which we now know would have been a close fight than that with Diaz,
Then he gets bumped up to GSP - which was always a fake fight announced by Dana to cover up the fact that GSP was already injured.
Now Condit has to fight Koscheck - who cound not even win 1 single round againsts GSP.
If Condit walks through Kos, he should leave the UFC and go fight in Bellator - and see if he can win their title before wasting his time with the Zuffa hatched GSP meal ticket.
Chances are most likely that "Dirtweed" Diaz will prevail anyway.

I like the caveman reference but I'm sorta leaning to Brookins looks more like Animal from the Muppets.
Me likey- November 16, 2011 at 8:01 am
i like lauzon but after the sotoropolous fight i don't think he has what it takes to compete with the elite.
he also has the worst nickname in mma.
SnackDaddy- November 16, 2011 at 7:38 am
I think Lauzon will take this. Pettis is highly entertaining though so this should be a great fight.
myklhoey- November 16, 2011 at 7:25 am
skelator you are funny man i look forward to readin dangas stuff cause of you
joe is a animal this dude has only let 1 fite in 27 go to the judges, im from boston tho bridgewater is far hes still a local boy i hope he gets past pettis and gets a crack at the gold
DangadaDang- November 16, 2011 at 7:25 am
Like I'm going to let someone who's primary insult is "suck a dick" lecture me on wit and wisdom. But seriously, keep 'em coming. The fact that you cling to my every word is actually kind of an ego booster.
Get Off Me- November 16, 2011 at 7:24 am
I miss the days when you used to shit on Elias C.
skeletor- November 16, 2011 at 7:23 am
@Get Off Me - I think Lauzon's striking is on par with Pettis, this should be a really good fight.
skeletor- November 16, 2011 at 7:21 am
I'm sure that is true Danga. There is no way they would pay you for your wit and wisdom and quality of articles.
