Etim still wants fight with Lauzon


"If I was supposed to fight somebody, and they pulled out twice, I'd be thinking this guy doesn't want to fight me. But believe me, I'd fight him at the drop of a hat," Etim told ESPN.

At his best, Etim is one of the most electric fighters in the 155lb division, and if he overcomes Renee Forte at UFC London on February 16 he may get fast-tracked back among the sharks of the lightweight division. And that scenario is exactly what he wants.
"Both times I've been set to fight Joe Lauzon, I've had really serious injuries to stop me. I would love to fight Joe Lauzon.

"Why would I be scared of fighting Joe Lauzon? Don't get me wrong, he's a great fighter, but if the UFC are still thinking of that fight I would say, 'Please, let me fight him'.

I like Etim but Lauzon is still higher in the rankings by quite a lot than Etim. I think Lauzon wins if they do fight though

Hope it happens Etim will need a big win first.

Even though they are both coming off losses, a win over Renee Forte doesn't do anything for Terry.

Meh. You backed out twice. Serious injury or not it would be tough to prep for someone you think will back out again. You're going to have to win 2-3 to even be near Joe in the rankings.
