Teammates? UFC lightweight Joe Lauzon says he would fight his own brother
Will teammates be forced to fight each other in the UFC? The answer to that depends on who you ask. UFC officials say it will happen if they deem it necessary, while some members of prominent training camps say they'd never sign on to face a training partner.
But don't count UFC lightweight Joe Lauzon among those unwilling to face anyone the organization puts in front of him. In fact, "J-Lau" recently told MMAjunkie.com Radio he'd even fight his own brother, Dan.
"Me and Dan are so competitive anyway," Lauzon said. "We practically kill each other in the gym. I go way harder in the gym with Danny than I would with any of my other guys."
With both brother currently under contract with Zuffa, the potential for the bout certainly exists. It would be up to UFC matchmaker Joe Silva to determine whether or not the brothers would ever face off.
"We've talked about it before," Lauzon said. "My mom wouldn't want it at all. My dad would be all for it."
