Ortiz "It looked like my hand skimmed the fence"
(411mania.com)
You know I really had time to actually look at it and watch the fight itself. I fought a great fight outside the one time when they took the point off and they showed I grabbed the fence. It looked like my hand skimmed the fence. Rashad ended up taking me down anyway and that's when I got a guillotine submission on him. He ended up being saved by the round. So I kind of question that a little bit. Did I really grab the fence when they took the point away? Because the very first time, yea I grabbed the fence I admitted to that. It was a mistake on my part and it was a reaction. But the overall fight, I fought a fairly aggressive fight.

Say it Ain't So, Royce! Notes on a Scandal

Here is the man, lean, lithe, and stoic. In a field of eight, he's a physical anomaly, with shoulders as narrow as his hips; a bulky pair of white pajamas conceals a set of pipe-cleaner arms.

Joe Lauzon To Train With Team Penn In Hawaii!!
(insidefighting.com)
Soon Lauzon will be heading to Hawaii and BJ Penn’s team for a week to get acclimated. If that works out, he will train for his next fight there, and if all goes well then, he will look to become an adopted son of the beautiful pacific island state for a year or two. This is a great sign and a great step for Lauzon IMO. I'm extremely excited about this news as hes just gonna get better which means trouble for the LW division.
