Lauzon vs. Warburton Wiki Update Wiki

The fifth bout of UFC on Versus 4 featured Joe "J-Lau" Lauzon taking on Curt "The War" Warburton in a lightweight contest. The veteran Lauzon entered the fight 6-3 in his prior UFC fights, while Warburton was 1-1 in his previous bouts in the organization.


The fighters started cautiously with Lauzon looking to come forward and strike but Warburton circling away. Warburton landed a nice uppercut and then a kick to the body, prompting Lauzon to come back and fire away with a combination. Lauzon landed a nice right hand then a dropped him with a big left hook. Lauzon dove on top and blasted away with punches. Warburton was in deep trouble and Lauzon attacked viciously for a kimura. Warburton momentarily defended until Lauzon tied on a triangle along with the kimura and yanked the shoulder gruesomely to the side, forcing Warburton to tap.


The brilliant performance from Joe Lauzon ended officially at 1:58 of the first round via kimura. Speaking to Joe Rogan in the post-fight interview, Lauzon commented, "I'm just happy that something I did in boxing every day finally happened, we worked that so many times in practice... we drilled that like crazy, it was one of the combinations we were looking for in this fight and it was right on the money... got to get that bonus money."
