I agree he's an exciting fighter. He's just one of those guys that kind of flies under the radar since he kind of keeps to himself. I don't think I ever bought a PPV solely because he was on the card but anytime I catch one of his fights I'm always entertained.

I agree. Anderson-Weidman II broke me inside a little bit, because of how much I cared about it.

Excellent point. Lauzon looks like a beast when he swarms sub-par competition (Gabe Ruediger, Warburton, etc), and is capable of putting on exciting scraps against fighters of his own level (Varner, Miller, etc). He's fun to watch (and fun to look at), but he is not the most exciting fighter.

For me, the most exciting fighter is Carlos Condit (inb4 "Diaz 1,2,5").

If the UFC cuts your opponent immediately after you beat him, shouldn't that devalue your win? In essence, you've just beaten someone who isn't UFC-caliber.

Them stats don't lie. I'm never disappointed to see Lauzon on an upcoming card.

His fight with Sam Stout gets rarely mentioned. Great fight, perhaps Stouts best performance. And the first round where Joe dived in to that kimura, that was beautiful...

That War with Miller is unforgetable and Varner fight was very exciting too. Gabe Ruediger fight was the definition of domination.

Was bit disappointed that he lost to Johnson (Johnson is very good though), hopefully he will win his next fight. Will always be a fan of his, seems to be great person outside the cage as well.

No peace, no release, no cure for this disease

Lauzon is def. exciting.

If UFC really wants exciting fighters they should pay lauzon a lot more than they do, i mean the dude should be getting PPV points.

His fights with varner and miller are just spectacles.

Guy is an absolute warrior.

When i think of an exciting fight i keep thinking of lauzon fight vs varner - that fight was insane, i was blown away.

Fedor - GOAT HW


Anderson Silva is still the GOAT MMA!

Lauzon is very exciting to me. Also she's pretty hot.
