Dan “The Upgrade” Lauzon to fight at WCF 5 on Nov.14

UFC veteran, Dan “The Upgrade” Lauzon will return to the ring against Justin “Sledge” Hammerstrom on Nov. 14, 2008 as World Championship Fighting (WCF) visits Aleppo Shriners Auditorium in Wilmington, Massachusetts.

Lauzon is on a very impressive six fight win streak and although he has a fight already scheduled with Chris Horodecki on an early 2009 pay-per-view, he wanted to take this fight with Hammerstrom to help keep his momentum going.

“I’ve fought for them [WCF] three times now and they take great care of me, and I love fighting for them in front of their fans and my friends and family. These (Boston) fans really are the best sports fans in the world.”

UFC 90 weigh-in results

Weigh-ins for UFC 90 took place on Friday at 4pm CT at the Chicago Theater in Chicago, Illionois.  All of the fighters made weight although there was a slight scare with Josh Burkman when he weighed in three pounds over the  170 lb. welterweight limit.

Burkman who seemed very surprised at his weight came back an hour later and made 171 lbs.  Non-title fights allow for a one pound discrepancy if a participant is over the limit.
