UFC lightweight Joe Lauzon in position for title run

Do you realize in all eighteen of Joe Lauzon’s victories he has never been to a decision? That is an amazing statistic.

Dan “the Upgrade” Lauzon, brother of TUF veteran and UFC lightweight contender, Joe Lauzon, fought in the main event at World Championship Fighting’s WCF 5 on November 14, 2008 at the Aleppo Shriners Auditorium in Wilmington, Massachusetts.

Lauzon was able to put together his seventh straight victory and he did it in just 45 seconds into the first round with a TKO over Justin Hammertrum. The loss for Hammertrum drops his record below.500.
