First, "The Upgrade"? Could be the worst nickname of all time and second no Hordecki? Looks like that fight was never meant to be.

His brother's nickname is J-Lau and you think The Upgrade is bad? With nicknames like Twinkletoes, Bring The Pain, The Hater Hurter, and The Dean Of Mean, I'll take The Upgrade any day of the week.

Haha great point. But I'm glad they signed Dan. I figured they would but I'm really excited to see him back in the octagon.

UPGRADE! I remember mask always saying that.

Good to see Dan back in the octagon.

i always liked upgrade. kind of a friendly poke at his brother. will be interesting having 2 brothers competing in the same division in the ufc.

YES!!!!! WAR UPGRADE!!!

And I personally think it's one of the better (and more original) nicknames.

it's like Christmas for the UFC and UFC fans when they sign a ton of new talent all at once, pretty exciting I think.
I mean I love strikeforce,dream,sengoku etc but it is neat when the ufc can pick up the remains of a failed organization

They should call him D-Lau like D-Lo Brown the old WWF star.

I mean even being "D-LO Brown" is better than being "J-Lo(pez)"



Anyone ever watch the video of Joe and Dan in a scrap on the grass in someone's front yard? I think I saw it in the Extras portion of the TUF5 DVDs I bought. It was pretty good times.

decent pick up in lauzon but i am glad the ufc has a sense of urgency to give these ex afflications guys fights asap since they are already in shape for ufc 103 and 104 to fight

I was one of the maybe 5% picking Oliveira over Gomi for Affliction, dude is no joke.

This is a solid solid fight.
