It seems like Joe has been getting thrown into fights he is supposed to lose since the beginning of his UFC career. It started with Jens Pulver right before they did TUF 5. It was funny how Joe got into TUF right after that fight, as a contestant with a coach that he just beat. That made the season really interesting for me and I think helped give Joe his wildcard "aura" or whatever. Then he was fighting Kenny Florian for the number 1 contender spot (after losing on TUF and winning 2 fights against UFC newcomers). After losing that fight, he fought George Sotiropolous (back when he was close to a title shot) after beating Gabe Ruediger and losing to Sam Stout before that. He then gets Melvin Guillard who was red hot at the time after beating Evan Dunham and Shane Roller with Guillard talking about getting his title shot soon and so on. Lauzon beats Guillard and then gets Pettis for another fight with big implications. Lauzon lost to Pettis, got one win and now he is back to fighting killers in Jim Miller. I guess the UFC either keeps trying to get Lauzon to the top as fast as possible or they keep trying to feed him to the wolves. He is kind of a wildcard in that he doesn't have many wins over top opponents and often loses badly (against top opponents nonetheless) but is very dangerous and kind of reminds me of BJ Penn (how he starts his fights very aggressive and stalking his opponents). Obviously he is very exciting and unpredictable (I think he was been to one decision his entire UFC career). Although it may seem that Joe gets thrown into these big fights, I think it is fitting for a fighter like him. I personally hope that Joe flips a switch one day (like Anderson did after losing to Chonan) and starts destroying people consistently. What do you guys think? Will we have the UFC's first creepy lightweight champ sometime soon?
