Is Joe Lauzon MMA’s biggest risk taker?

Wednesday, November 07, 2012

For Joe, it’s always all or nothing. There is no middle ground for this man. He shows up, and he’s focused on one motto: finish or be finished. As a result, he hangs his cajones out there every single time he sets foot in the octagon

Outside of Anderson Silva, Joe Lauzon is the most thrilling fighter to watch on the UFC roster

If he gets the back, he’s going to do everything in his power to sink a fight-ending choke; errant arm, he’s searching for the armbar. Being mauled from the bottom? He’s tossing those legs up for a triangle. If he staggers you during a striking exchange, a hellacious barrage of strikes rides the wake
