Lauzon: Limbs are calling my name, begging me to rip them off

 

A UGer recently asked if Joe Lauzon could play the point game if he really wanted to.

ALL of his UFC wins has come via submission or KO/TKO.

I don’t think he wants to and lot of people, including myself, don’t want Joe to play point game in the fight. When I say point game, I mean both on stand up (hit and run style fight) and on ground (dominating top control, going for take down for points). I think his style right now fits perfectly well for him not just for exciting fights but to actually win fights.

My question is this-is playing so-called “point game” a specific skill in the MMA? I think it obviously is. And if so, does J-Lau possess that skill? Not that he wants to. But if the decision is made by his coaches to play point game, can J-Lau execute it?

Lauzon replied definitively.

Could I physically edge people out? Absolutely. But I would never do that when limbs are calling my name and begging me to rip them off.

Is it a contradiction to like Frankie Edgar’s style but to hate the way Condit fought against Diaz? I’m not saying it is or isn’t. I’m not even saying I hated/liked Condit’s strategy either. I’m just curious as to what you guys think. Is there a difference? Perhaps because Frankie’s style is pretty much consistent as opposed to Condit who used that style only against Diaz? Or is there more difference?

Thanks for the response. I have been watching MMA for a while now but I don’t get on MMA forums that much so I have to admit I get all giddy when an actual UFC fighter responds to regular Joe like me.    Prior to posting this thread, I looked up your fight record. I have been watching MMA for about 7 years and I have watched a LOT of your fights starting with UFC 63. From UFC 63 to present is a looong time and I was sure that at least one of your UFC win had to come via decision. I thought maybe there was a fight that I missed or just simply forgot. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that not a single UFC win went to the decision. Your finishing rate is amazing.

That explanation is better than what I had been expecting. You the man, Joe. You the man.
