Joe Lauzon’s Fight List

After leaving his corporate job, Joe had his first amatur fight in 2002. As an amateur, he held a record of 5-3. In 2004 Joe had his first cage fight in Massachusetts with the promotion Mass Destruction, where he won via arm bar in the first round. From there Lauzon went on an 8 win streak, all of the wins being by submission. By the end of 2004, Lauzon was named fighter of the year by local MMA outlets. 

Lauzon was a contestant on The Ultimate Fighter on B.J. Penn’s team, competing against the team coached by Jens Pulver. Joe defeated Brian Geraghty in the preliminary round, and then defeated Cole Miller in the quarter finals. Joe then lost to Manvel Gamburyan by unanimous decision in the semifinals. In the finale, he defeated Brandon Melendez by a triangle choke in the second round. Ironically, Lauzon’s UFC debut was in 2006 at UCF 63, where he upset former UFC Lightweight Champion Jens Pulver by knockout in 48 seconds. Joe amazingly beat 7-to-1 odds in this fight.

At UFC 78, Lauzon won by rear naked choke against previously undefeated competitor Jason Reinhardt in the first round. After a quick takedown, Lauzon transitioned to the north south position, causing Jaon to turn and give up his back which led to the submission win for Lauzon. 

At UFC Fight Night 13 Lauzon defeated  Kyle Bradley by TKO in the second round. Bradley rocked Lauzon with a punch in the first round which Lauzon managed to recover from and continue to battle for the duration of the round. Lauzon landed a takedown in the second round and was able to transition to the mount and then to the back. Lauzon was able to land several punches from the back, causing the referee to step in to save Bradley.

In February 2009, Lauzon was scheduled to fight former WEC Lightweight Champion, Hermes Franca, as the main event for UFC Fight Night 17. Franca was forced to pull out of the fight due to a torn cruciate ligament in his right knee. Jeremy Stephens stepped in as a replacement, who Lauzon defeated via armbar in the second round. 

Lauzon was defeated by Sam Stout at UFC 107 in January 2010 by decision, however the entertaining bout won Fight of the Night. Lauzon was set to face Terry Etim at UFC 118 in August 2010, however Etim was forced to withdraw due to an injury. Instead, Lauzon fought his former cast mate from The Ultimate Fighter, Gabe Ruediger. During weigh-ins for this bout, Ruediger brought Lauzon a cake that read “sorry for your loss”, however Lauzon defeated Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt Ruediger by an armbar in the first round. According to commentator Joe Rogan, he believed Gabe was not in control of that fight for a second.

In November 2010 at UFC 123, Lauzon faced George Sotiropoulos. The first round of the fight was extremely action packed and appeared as though Lauzon was setting the pace of the fight. By the end of the first round, the table started to turn and George started to gain momentum as Lauzon started to become tired. After a scramble in the second round, George won after gaining the top position and forcing the tap with a kimura. At UFC on Versus 4, Lauzon faced and defeated Curt Warburton with a kimura in the first round. 

Lauzon was briefly linked to a fight with Charles Olivera to take place in November 2011, however Olivera insisted on a fight with Donald Cerrone instead. Olivera and Cerrone ended up facing each other in August 2011 at UFC Live: Hardy vs Lytle. At UFC 163, Lauzon secured the win against Melvin Guillard by a rear naked choke submission, earning his fourth Submission of the NIght and sixth straight UFC Bonus award.

In more recent times, Lauzon faced Chris Gruetzemacher at UFC 223 in April 2018. Due to the damage Lauzon took throughout the fight, his corner decided to stop the fight after the second round. Lauzon took an 18 month hiatus after this loss, but came back for UFC on ESPN 6 in October 2019 to fight Jonathon Pearce. Lauzon won this fight by technical knockout in the first round. This has been Lauzon’s last fight to date. Joe Lauzon more recently stated that he is noncommittal on his future in the world of MMA, but is confident that the UFC will allow him to fight again if he wants.

Joe Lauzon’s Best Fight Of All Time

Lauzon was defeated by Anthony Pettis in February 2012 at UFC 144 by knockout due to a head kick in 91 seconds. Just a few months after his loss, Lauzon was expected to face Terry Etim in August 2012 at UFC on Fox 4, however Etim again was forced to pull out of the fight due to an injury and he was replaced by Jamie Varner. In an exciting back and forth bout with both men receiving serious damage, Lauzon pulled out the sin by a triangle choke in the third round. This submission win earned Lauzon yet another Fight of the Night and Submission of the NIght award, as well as a Fight of the Year nomination at the World MMA awards. Due to his extremely impressive performance, this is widely considered as Joe Lauzon’s best fight of all time.
