UFC lightweight contender Joe Lauzon (23-9 MMA, 10-6 UFC) does not like to leave his fights in the ‘hands of the judges.’
That’s probably why ‘J-Lau’ boasts an astonishing 96% finishing rate. Yes, you read correctly, Mr. Lauzon has a 96% ‘kill rate’ thus far in his MMA career.
In fact, his last outing against Mac Danzig at the “UFC on FOX 9” event, was his first-ever decision victory while competing in mixed martial arts. All of Lauzon’s other 22 victories have come by way of stoppage.
Joe’s fight style has not only made him a fan favorite, but has also earned him a boatload of money for his record setting 11 UFC Fight Night bonus awards.
Props to MMA.TV for discovering this incredible statistic.
