The feeding frenzy continues, as the WEC and UFC have reportedly picked up a few more solid additions in the wake of Affliction’s demise. Here’s the latest…
— According to Sherdog, the featherweight bout between Javier Vazquez and L.C. Davis that was supposed to take place during the undercard of "Trilogy" will now take place at WEC 42: Torres vs. Bowles (August 9th, Las Vegas). Vazquez (13-2) is a former King of the Cage and Gladiator Challenge champion who most recently choked out Mark Kergosian in 19 seconds at last month’s Ultimate Chaos show; it was just his third fight since 2003. Davis (also 13-2) is an IFL vet whose most recent decision loss to Michihiro Omigawa at Sengoku 7 in March dropped him from our featherweight top ten list.
— FiveKnuckles.com hears that Dan Lauzon (who was supposed to face Chris Horodecki at "Trilogy") and Rafaello Oliveira (who was supposed to face Takanori Gomi at "Trilogy") will now be fighting each other in a lightweight bout at UFC 103 (September 19, Dallas). Lauzon is the younger brother of UFC lightweight contender Joe Lauzon, and most recently choked out Bobby Green at January’s "Day of Reckoning" show, after getting his nuts kicked in for the entire first round. He also became the youngest fighter to ever step into the Octagon (at 18 years, seven months) when he appeared at UFC 64 in October 2006, losing to Spencer Fisher by first-round TKO. Lauzon is currently riding an eight-fight win streak.
— Correction: Paul Daley has denied reports that he’s already signed a four-fight deal with the UFC, telling MMA Fanhouse that he’s still weighing his options.
