Lauzon 'happy' with Sotiropoulos matchup

Considering his past life as a computer geek, it’s no surprise that Joe Lauzon relies on technology to prepare for fights.

The Wentworth Institute graduate, whose previous career was as a network administrator, has spent extensive time breaking down George Sotiropoulos leading up to their fight at UFC 123 in Auburn Hills, Mich., Saturday.

“I’m much happier about the matchup than I was when they first offered it,” Lauzon said. “We had a lot of time to go break down tape and really go at it systematically. I’m pretty happy with how the camp went.

Lauzon was able to pick up on Sotiropoulos’ tendencies through the film work, though he understandably didn’t want to share his discoveries before the fight.

“There’s a lot of things that George does very well, but I think it’s a little bit predictable,” Lauzon said. “Knowing what he’s going to do is a big advantage. I think we have a pretty good profile of what he’s going to go for and different things he likes. We put a lot of time into breaking down tape.”

no Joe is wrong on this, and if he really thinks its such a big advantage, he is well within his rights to wear the same stuff.

How many of Georges last 5 fights were finished due to his wraps? Seriously question, am not sure myself. I think Joe mentioned this in an interview after the bout was set, but imo it was just gamesmanship. Joe won't be sidetracked, even by magic pants.

Hopefully Joe speaks up and the MSAC will do something about the ankle/knee pads, Joe is right about that one.
