Lauzon & Maynard start early, take shots at each other in the media

source: The Underground
 

In an article for UFC.com yesterday, Gray Maynard went hard at Lauzon, saying the fighter didn't respond well to pressure and that it was his camp that asked for a fight with Lauzon:

“Lauzon is saying he asked for this fight and it’s funny because we made the call for it too,” Maynard said. “It’s a fight that makes sense for what is going on the division, so let’s do this. I guess he’s a little better with the PR side of things and felt he needed to get to work on that early. It really doesn’t matter to me. We have to fight and I’ll fight that dude anywhere.

“I don’t really care what he thinks or the game plan he brings. My focus is on me and being the best I can be for the scrap. He’s built up his name; he looked good in his last fight, and this is an opportunity for me to get a win over an opponent with a solid name.“

“This is a big step up for him and every time he’s had an opportunity like this, it hasn’t worked out too well,” offered Maynard. “Other than his fight with Melvin Guillard, Lauzon hasn’t responded when the pressure is on. We’re going to scrap, and when it’s all said and done, one of us will be closer to a title shot.

Really? You can't understand why that would matter? I think you're just being obtuse.
