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’.
