Joe Lauzon

Joe Lauzon is one of the most experienced fighters in the UFC. With 34 professional career fights, 18 UFC fights, and 11 years of professional MMA experience, Lauzon has seen quite a bit in his time as a professional fighter.

Coinciding with that, Lauzon has a bit of experience dealing with “trolls” online. UFC fighter Norman Parke Tweeted Lauzon recently, and the series of Tweets that followed were quite heated.

Parke then released an ‘Open Letter’ to Joe Lauzon, via #WHOATV:

“Dear Mr. Joe Lauzon,

I am disheartened by your blocking of me on Twitter. You have always been a fighter I admired and love to watch. You come to fight and I respect that. It is for that very reason that I wish to fight you. So many fighters in the UFC are happy to fight for a decision win.
I see no reason for this fight not to happen. You lost your last fight, as have I, so neither of us can claim to be above the other right now. If you think I am not in your league I would like to point out I am 4-1-1 in the UFC since 2012 while you are 3-4 during the same period.
I have contacted Joe Silva expressing my desire to fight you. I am not sure of your medical clearance after getting badly TKO’d in your last fight but UFC on FOX 15 is taking place in New Jersey, not too far from Boston, on April 18. Failing that I would happily fight you anywhere at anytime.
I also propose a special stipulation to our fight. If neither of us secures a finish then both of us shall proceed in giving our fight purses to the Jimmy Fund. At the same time I propose that we set up a donation page so that fans who are looking to see this fight can donate (towards the Jimmy Fund). Also after what is sure to be a brutal and bloody encounter we can frame our fight gloves & shorts and auction them off with the money earned going towards the very same charity.
If you wish to accept then unblock me on Twitter and tweet me.
I look forward to your response.
Kind Regards,
‘Stormin’ Norman Parke
