Beating Mac Danzig isn’t anything to write home about at this point but Lauzon’s relative dominance in the rumble is (as are the hellacious elbows he delivered to slice up the Ultimate Fighter winner’s face). He’s not in position to face a big dog in the division based on consecutive stumbles to Jim Miller/Michael Johnson, but “J-Lau” is beloved by fans and a lock to entertain, so there’s no reason he can’t face a high profile foe. Think Edson Barboza or Donald Cerrone assuming “Cowboy” doesn’t drop down to 145 pounds as teased. (PHOTO CREDIT: Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports)
Finding a UFC win lacking significance is akin to the proverbial needle in a haystack. However, there’s no question some victories have a larger impact on either a division or the involved individual than others. Such was certainly the case at UFC on FOX 9 where a few underdogs stepped up to the plate and knocked one out of the park, seasoned veterans rose to the occasion, and flyweight champ Demetrious Johnson turned in his best performance to date.
