In the first round of his fight against George Sotiropoulos Lauzon came out with a surge of energy, which he used to get the better of the stand-up exchanges.
“I figured the second round would be more like the first. But getting off the stool for the second round, my legs felt like concrete. I don’t know why or what happened. I felt pretty good at the end of the first, but at the beginning of the second I felt dead. It was like I got worse. Instead of recovering, I got way worse.”
“I’m not even sure. It had to be an adrenaline dump. I think I pushed a pretty good pace in the first round, but I didn’t feel like it was something that would make me gassed. I felt good at the end of my first walking back to my corner. I was a little winded, but I was OK.”
“It’s definitely something we have to address and figure out before we fight again. I can’t keep having this happen.”
“It’s definitely good to take that step back and get my breath and reorganize and regroup.”
