Dan Lauzon released by the UFC
Dan Lauzon has been released by the UFC following a loss to Efrain Escudero, his second in a row, at UFC 114.
Joe Cavallaro, a friend and business partner, confirmed the news. The promoter of World Championship Fighting had Lauzon under a promotional agreement when he fought locally and has helped the East Bridgewater native along the way.
“His contract was terminated. He’s just got to go back and get more experience. Dany is very very young guy,” said Cavallaro. “He is a tremendous fighter. He needs to get the right training, the right camp and get a handful of wins again.
“I was talking to Joe Silva about it and he said ‘we’ll definitely have him back. We love him, he’s a tough kid. He just needs more experience, a consistent camp.’ He did learn a lot from this fight.”
It was well documented leading up to the fight that due to a training dispute Lauzon was without his older brother Joe Lauzon, as well as coaches Joe Pomfret and Steve Maze in his corner. The 22-year-old stood and traded with Escudero for three rounds, but later admitted his lack of conditioning played a big role in the loss.
