Ken Florian and Joe Lauzon have verbally agreed to meet in a headlining UFC lightweight bout on Spike TV, Florian’s camp confirmed Wednesday. The proposed match-up would see the pair of popular New England fighters meet in the main event for a UFC Fight Night tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, April 2.

A venue for the event has not been announced, though the Massachusetts natives would not have the pleasure of mixing it up in their home state. MMA remains unregulated in the Bay State.

Contracts have not yet been presented to “The Ultimate Fighter” alumni, though they are expected shortly.

Im picking Lauzon for the upset. Kenflo is great but Lauzon is game for big fights when he's the underdog like against Pulver. He's going to come out set a fast pace and go for the kill early on. Kenflo has more experience in the ufc and will probaby win but i wont be suprised if creepy joe get the W.

It's a bit of a step-down for Kenny. I just don't see how he can lose this fight

I really want Louzon to win! I think I'll even bet on him...I am very unsure with this prediction.

Why (without fighter bashing) would you hate Kenny? Elbow hatred?

I don't like his additude at all, and every time he runs around screaming "I finish fights" I want him to be eaten by a lion.

lauzon is good but he isnt in florians league yet. florian has better standup and jiu jitsu and joe isnt strong enough to completely handle kenny from the top. florian by sub round 2, i dont even think it will be close.

I don't think it is a step down for Ken-Flo, I think it is a great fight actually. I wish it was Huerta but i guess later on....

Florian has to fight someone ya know? I mean the title fights are already taken up for the next 6 months. Penn-Stevenson and then Sherk 3-4 months later. So if he wins then look for him to fight Sherk again for another title shot late October. Unless Joe Silva doesn't want to see that fight again.

I wouldn't be surprised if he loses to Lauzon though.

Man I feel the exact same way. The whole "I finish fights" gimmick really irritated me for some reason.

i see ken flo pulling another sub off, good fight though, if he gets past lauzon he has to fight huerta next too see who gets the next shot at the title after the sherk fight

Wow can't wait for this one should be a great fight but to say its a step down in competition is kinda a joke. Joe is a beast with some good hands to go along with his BJJ oh and his trainer BJ. I'm not picking against Joe agiain now that hes seriously training out in Hawaii. I think Joe has an advantage in the stand up and on the ground personally and i think he will be able to take everything Kenny throws at him and plus he can't loose when he is so book smart
Link

Lauzon in a UD is my pick but of course i am biasis but i really believe if he avoids the elbows he will win.
If Joe does loose he's not gonna get finished it will be a UD.
Can't freaking wait!!!
