Former UFC lightweight contender Gray Maynard solidified his position in the 155-pound pecking order by scoring a decision victory over Clay Guida earlier this year. Now, Maynard will attempt to close out 2012 with another win, this time over Joe Lauzon, when the two meet in December.
Maynard had a pair of chances at securing the UFC lightweight title, but Frankie Edgar kept the belt both times. Lauzon, a bonus machine for the UFC, will be looking for a signature win over "The Bully" to put himself in the eyes of a contending role.
