"Honestly, I do it for me more so than the bonuses," Lauzon said of his propensity to aggressively seek submissions. "The bonus money is nice, but I don't want to be a hypocrite and just go out there and try to win rounds. I don't want to go out there and skate through fights without trying to actually finish guys.

"If I'm not doing anything, I get bored, so I have to go out there and look for those submissions. I want to make them say, 'You're better. I give up.' … When you get a submission and the guy says, 'OK, please stop. You're going to destroy my arm,' or they get choked unconscious, then there is no question about who was the better guy."

"I kind of feel I'm a dinosaur a bit in that there aren't a whole lot of guys who hunt submissions nearly as aggressively as I do," he said. "There are definitely guys who have good submissions, but I feel like I go out there in every fight constantly looking for the submission. There are so many guys who seem content to win decisions and just win round after round after round.

"They do it, but they're not finishing guys. I feel like I'm one of those guys who is carrying the submission flag. There's not a whole lot of us."

It's always a great fight when Jlau is in the cage. The loudest I ever heard a live crowd was when he smashed Cakezilla and the tried to separate his arm from his body. The crowd went absolutely crazy. Keep kicking ass Joe! Phone Post

Each and every fight is an opportunity for a fighter to build on their career legacy, to create those moments people will remember for years if not generations to come. Lauzon seems to get that, and goes for that moment every time.

Makes for damn exciting fights and nobody's got a problem with that. Crazy killer instinct.

No one wants to miss a show with Joe on it. Guaranteed to get a good fight. Can't say that for more than a handful of guys on the roster. Phone Post

A lot of fighters have been hyping themselves lately with questionable comments.

But Joe Lauzon is 100% right here. Joe is an absolute badass and I always look forward to his fights.

His wiki says purple, but I don't know how accurate that is.

Thatsjustlikeyouropinionman -  It's creepy how much I like Joe lol Phone Post

 


This :) one of my favourite fighters. Exciting as fuck and a class act. TUF 5 was the first series of TUF I saw and since then Joe and Nate Diaz have been 2 fighters I would always pay to watch. VTFU!!!

It's refreshing to hear a fighter that doesn't want to just creep up the imaginary rankings and doesn't whine about what he thinks he's owed.
