Joe Lauzon Calls Tapout TV Show Garbage

by:  Jack Bratcher

As most MMA fans know, the leading MMA clothing line and UFC sponsor, Tapout, has a television show that airs on Versus.  On the show, the Tapout crew made up of Mask, Skyscrape, and Punkass, travel around the country in their pimped out RV scouting out fighters to sponsor and  helping their fighters in various ways.  They are currently airing the second season and the show that Joe Lauzon is referring to is the second episode of this season which featured his brother, Dan “The Upgrade” Lauzon.
