Joe Lauzon vs. Mac Danzig Added To UFC on FOX 9


The hits just keep on coming for the UFC, as it was announced that exciting Lightweight combatants Joe Lauzon and Mac Danzig will take to the Octagon at December 14’s UFC on FOX 9. The UFC tweeted the news last night:

It’s going to be sink or swim time for both fighters, because each is 0-2 in their last couple of bouts and will look to avoid the dreaded three-fight losing streak. Both fighters are longtime UFC participants, and have made a name for themselves by putting on rousing battles to earn several Fight Night Bonuses.

Lauzon holds the record with 12 total, while Danzig himself has four. However, their last efforts were quite the opposite, as Lauzon was battered en route to a lopsided decision loss to Michael Johnson at UFC Fight Night 26, while Danzig got knocked out by Melvin Guillard at UFC on FOX 8. Lauzon’s fight was particularly puzzling, as he showed none of the trademark fire that has defined him throughout his UFC career.

Both fighters have a chance to write the wrongs of their recent bouts. While Danzig and Lauzon may ever find themselves fighting for the UFC Lightweight belt, they can still bring it and give the fans a hard-hitting contest. It’s unlikely the loser will be cut, but it’s not out of the question.

Their match will join the Anthony Pettis vs. Josh Thomson Lightweight title fight and the Urijah Faber vs. Michael McDonald Bantamweight co-main. Stay tuned to Lowkick for more on the developing event from Sacramento!

  • J-Loe better win this one… if he wants to keep his job!

  • Yeah both might be cut with a loss. Should be a war

  • Mac who? He's still on the roster?

  • Just to be clear here J-Lau needs to win this fight or he might lose his job? his last 3 fight he is 1 win and two loses BUT in 3 fights he received 2 fight bonus Jim Miller Fight of the Night; Fight of the Year (2012) and Jamie Varner fight Submission of the Night; Fight of the Night; 2012 World MMA Awards Fight of the Year.

    • and your point is??? if he has a horrible performance again (especially if its anything like the last one) it's not looking good for him….! With the full roster that the UFC has right now and all the upcoming talent they would cut a guy like that without thinking twice especially with more fighters coming out of the TUF series entering the organisation. If you don't keep winning you're on the chopping block and Joe is on thin ice now after his last horrible performance. Where he pretty much did not fight….. at all! He looked like he didn't belong in there…
