I don't like this fight at all. Lauzon's earned someone like Diego Sanchez! You know, someone to give him a fun fight?

Didn't see this one coming.

I also thought Maynard had someone else set up to fight or maybe that's just what I thought.

I'll be pulling for Lauzon as always.

Lauzon is a live dog in this, and I'll be rooting for him. Any guy with a comp-sci degree who fights, I will back

I don't really dislike Maynard though, for the record. He's put on some entertaining fights over the years.

My head tells me Gray will dominate a unanimous decision, but my gut is telling me Lauzon gets the win some how some way

Maynard will end up being a heavy favorite but Lauzon shouldn't be counted out.

Gray has the wrestling, but Lauzon better boxing and submissions.

Both from TUF 5, or at least I think that was the season.

A Lauzon win is what I'm hoping for. I don't like Maynard and I have no desire to see him fight for a title again. With that being said though, it's Maynard's fight to lose.

The Lauzon/Sanchez fight sounds a hell of a lot more interesting. Great suggestion.

At first I thought Maynard UD but then thought about it and realized besides the takedown lauzon imo is better everywhere else. Also I think even of Maynard gets it to the ground lauzon is good enough with his bjj to pull off a nice choke.


Going with Lauzon right now R2 Sub

I'm thinkin' Maynard UD is a pretty safe pick.

The story of Lauzon's career is that he always gets one fight away. His four losses in the UFC were to multiple-time challenger Kenny Florian, Sotiropoulos after he won his first six fights in the UFC, Stout, and Pettis in what would have been a title eliminator if Edgar had not got the rematch.

Here's to hoping he can finally get over the hump with a win over Maynard.

i'll be rooting for lauzon for sure. he'll probably an underdog so i think ill probably lay some money down on him. he has a chance of submitting gray and i think a lot of people will count him out just because gray is coming off a title fight.

Im sure Gray will wrestle to a UD. But I think Im in the majority when I say i would like to see him lose and be knocked down another peg. Lauzon is a tough fighter, so Im going to pick this fight Lauzon via Sub round 2.

I hope J Lo trains with Clay and Cruz and dances around the cage for five rounds while Gray goes ape.

lauzon is one of my favourite fighters but damn all his fights are tough to call.
