Maynard Sets Record Straight On Lauzon But Joe Rebuts With Insider Text Message | UFC NEWs


In a recent interview with UFC.com Gray Maynard offered up the following when discussing his upcoming bout against Joe Lauzon.

“Lauzon is saying he asked for this fight and it’s funny because we made the call for it too,” Maynard said. “It’s a fight that makes sense for what is going on the division, so let’s do this. I guess he’s a little better with the PR side of things and felt he needed to get to work on that early. It really doesn’t matter to me. We have to fight and I’ll fight that dude anywhere.

“I don’t really care what he thinks or the game plan he brings. My focus is on me and being the best I can be for the scrap. He’s built up his name; he looked good in his last fight, and this is an opportunity for me to get a win over an opponent with a solid name.“

“This is a big step up for him and every time he’s had an opportunity like this, it hasn’t worked out too well,” offered Maynard. “Other than his fight with Melvin Guillard, Lauzon hasn’t responded when the pressure is on. We’re going to scrap, and when it’s all said and done, one of us will be closer to a title shot.”

Joe, took to social media to funnel out clarification of Maynard’s claims through a text mesage screen cap with UFC matchmaker Joe Silva.

Hope to page two to see what Joe released.

    • Unarmed Spectator says:

      @T.Baggy How are the 7 kids and 6 baby mamas? Give JLau a chance, Gray and him will battle and Win FOTN honors, with Gray taking the Decision and not easily as you put it. Or wait for it….. JLau submits Gray round 2 via Arm Bar. P.S keep the kids off the streets ok…

  4. The natural says:

    Wow surprised me I didn’t think u asked ur boss for ass beatins

  5. Unarmed Spectator says:

    For a guy that holds most fight bonuses in the UFC it says a lot about the kids character. Yeah kinda petty about who called who out first, but seams like Chael is rubbing off on other fighters, but shit talking sells payper views, the more popular you are the bigger your check i.e Brock Lesbar I gues popularity contest via social media is going to be the way of the UFC.

    • T.DADDY says:

      When a fighter breaks mma PPV records like Brock did you deserve to get paid top dollar.. so STFU

      • Unarmed Spectator says:

        @Tbaggy Ignorance is bliss, and in your case your are one blissfull person. Your comment didn’t make sense, “did you deserve to get paid top dollar!”. Um let me guess 7 kids with 6 baby mamas? For one Brock Lesbar was my example of a fighter who get paid top dollar for his payperview draw not his talent! So you STFU (Thinking this might be Brock himself now.) TBaggy. You superbly smart (sarcasm) individual you… Have a good day bro, aloha.

        • santiago says:

          u need to learn how to read effectively cuz his comment makes sense and yes if u help to sell a card u should get a slice of that pie

        • Unarmed Spectator says:

          Cuz I never said he didn’t deserve a slice of the PIE what are you Guys reading! Bro yes he pulled the number pay the faka what he deserves. I said (go back and read) the more popular you are the bigger the paycheck for example!!!!!!!!!! Brock Lesnar!!!!! Holy SHIT please read the f**ken first comment again!!!!!!!!!! And Tbaggy said “Did YOU deserve to get paid top dollar” Wat da fac das dat meen?

        • Armbarring Infant says:

          let’s make it easier for you. there was more than one clause in his sentence. I’ll insert a comma for you. “When a fighter breaks mma ppv records like brock did, [then] you deserve to get paid….” blah blah blah. it’s ok everybody looks stupid now and then

        • Unarmed Spectator says:

          Truthfully I got what he meant but he told me to STFU so kinda got me…

  6. J. Christ says:

    Me and my dad saw you tug off that dog. As a result, you will not be coming to the afterparty at ours.

    Peace out

    J
