Joe Lauzon is a busy guy. Not only is he fighting Jeremy Stephens in the main event at this Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 17, but exactly one week later he will be taking on grappling phenom, Will Kerr, in a North American Grappling Association ‘Superfight’.

The 15th annual NAGA New England Grappling Championship will be held at the Twin River Casino in Lincoln, Rhode Island on Saturday, February 14th. The tournament is open to all grappling styles and will take place in the Twin River Casino’s 26,000 sq. foot Grand Ballroom with 14 competition rings running at once.

Lauzon vs. Kerr is a replacement for a No-GI Superfight that was to take place between Gabriel “Napo” Gonzaga and Luigi Mondelli. Gonzaga had to pull out due to an upcoming UFC fight. For more information on NAGA and this event visit the NAGA website at
