Joe Lauzon’s First Fight

Joe Lauzon’s First Fight

Everybody loves Joe Lauzon. And why not? The dude literally goes for it in every fight, and while his record is far from spotless, it’s riddled with more bloody battles and slick submissions than a grappling tournament held in a meat packing plant.

Yesterday, Lauzon did an “ask me anything” on Reddit, and posted this little gem: his first MMA fight ever. The backstory on the bout is actually a pretty common theme in local, low-level MMA shows. Lauzon was sitting in the audience, and for one reason or another a fighter in the main event had to back out and a replacement was needed. Guess who stepped up on 10-minutes notice?
