Lauzon has never had a suspect chin and his stand-up has been quite underrated imo especially going into this fight. The problem Lauzon has had is his cardio and if he could get that together he would've been a title contender for awhile now.
Great hands
Great jits
Very Good takedowns
Cardio still a question mark.
Luckily he's still young. Can't wait to see who he fights next.

I disagree that he has great takedowns. As I see it, his problem is this:

He has decent stand-up. His ground game is great. But, he can't always get it down. The reason he gasses is because he wastes so much energy on the takedown.

Perhaps that's why he gasses but he has taken down pretty much anyone he wants in the first rd including Ken Flo.
