Will teammates be forced to fight each other in the UFC? The answer to that depends on who you ask.

UFC officials say it will happen if they deem it necessary, while some members of prominent training camps say they'd never sign on to face a training partner.

But don't count UFC lightweight Joe Lauzon among those unwilling to face anyone the organization puts in front of him. In fact, "J-Lau" recently told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio) he'd even fight his own brother, Dan.

I bet Joe and Dan have fought numerous times over the years. Where is the big deal in making it offical?

Actually there's a bonus feature on the TUF 5 dvd set that shows them "fighting" in (presumably) their front yard.

I believe team mates should have to fight eachother fighting is a one man sport you have sparring partners. i like fighting my team mates cause we both have an edge on eachother we know what to look for and expect. always leads to a good fight

I've fought my own twin brother before. There's nothing like a family fight, I say...

Lauzon vs. Lauzon. I'd love to see it.

I'd love to see them kill each other.

On the real, sign Lauzon v Lauzon. Would be a great story.
