“I definitely sat back after that one and started to reassess what I’m doing. I thought about it long and hard, and decided that I still want to go after it. There’s just something about fighting, something about the reasons why I got into it – which, in a broad sense, is probably similar to the reason a lot of people get into it and go for it 100-percent.” (PHOTO CREDIT: Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports)
Though lightweight Mac Danzig (21-11-1) won’t celebrate his 34th birthday until January, another important date recently rolled around in the form of his six-year anniversary as a member of the UFC roster. However, this weekend could very well mark his final appearance in the Octagon since winning the Ultimate Fighter 6. Danzig is scheduled to lock horns with Joe Lauzon (22-9) at UFC on FOX 9 where he’ll attempt to avoid his second three-fight slide under the organization’s banner. Danzig recently spoke to UFC.com about the stakes going into the bout, admitting he’s already contemplated a life outside of the cage but is excited about the opportunity to face a fighter like Lauzon on network television.
