The Underground News
 

UFC Fighter Joe Lauzon was recently promoted to purple belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu by his jiu-jitsu instructor John Clark. John Clark is a jiu-jitsu black belt under Fabio Araujo, who himself is a Carlson Gracie Black Belt under Amaury Possidente.

Despite being a well-versed grappler and most well known for his grappling and submission skills, Lauzon is relatively new to gi jiu-jitsu.

Lauzon is next scheduled to fight January 2nd, against Sam Stout at UFC 108, having recently come off ACL replacement surgery.

He must not train with the gi much because he has been much better than a blue belt for a long time.

That's awesome! Although I suspect this is similar to the way that Diego is only a purple belt too. Lauzon is way above a purple belt, but I guess he still has to walk the line when it comes to gi.

 Congrats. Did they make you put your hands flat on the mat and belt whip the back of your hands too? That's a popular one around here lately... Hope the welts leave great memories!
