DALLAS, Texas (105.3 THE FAN) – When UFC lightweight veteran Joe Lauzon made his UFC debut in 2006 he was fresh off a stint on The Ultimate Fighter facing a big name in Jens Pulver.
It was an opportunity for him to make a name for himself off of the back of an established veteran, and that’s exactly what he did, knocking out Pulver in just 48 seconds.
What has followed has been a UFC career as a steady stand out performer, tying the legendary Anderson Silva for most performance bonuses all time with 12. A self professed computer geek, Lauzon fights for the honor of video gamers everywhere when his nerdy predisposition turns to tough guy ruthlessness once the cage door closes.
