UFC lightweight Joe Lauzon recently picked up the tenth and eleventh event-specific bonuses of his career earlier this month by tapping out Jamie Varner in the third round of an exciting bout where his showing was named Submission of the Night and Fight of the Night. In his next outing, he’ll try to earn the biggest win of his career rather than a record-breaking twelfth performance-based paycheck.
According to a UFC announcement, Lauzon has agreed to mix it up with his TUF 5 cast-mate Gray Maynard on December 29 at UFC 155. The match-up will be one of the PPVs featured fights with the evening’s headliner likely involving a title-bout between heavyweights Junior dos Santos-Cain Velasquez.
Lauzon holds an overall record of 22-7 with eighteen submissions and four TKOs giving him a perfect mark when it comes to finishing opponents he’s beaten. He is 3-1 in his last four fights including a sub-minute tap-out of Melvin Guillard.
