QuickTwitt: Pettis Agrees To Wait For Lauzon


If you missed the video posted up by Joe Lauzon yesterday, than this “QuickTwitt” post may not make that much sense to you. However, luckily we are here to feel you in on the quick details…

Anthony Pettis came out last week and started campaigning for a fight with Joe Lauzon. Joe in time, responded with an “I accept” of his own. Then yesterday, Lauzon came out with a quick video post saying that he doesn’t want to fight until February and if Pettis is willing to wait, that the UFC is down to make it happen and the decision to fight now lies solely in the hands of Mr. Anthony Pettis.

Well, seems he has agreed!

Joe Lauzon vs. Anthony Pettis in Feb 2012. Who ya got?

  1. ThaGreenBandit says:

    Good scrap, but I think J-Lau has the edge in power, and submissions.

  2. Ruckus says:

    I have a feeling this is going to be a great match. It may turn into a grappling match and if that’s the case Lauzon should win this. Both guys have solid ground skills but I think Lauzon holds the advantage over Pettis. I recall Pettis saying something about he was concentrating on his wrestling and grappling during an interview and learning how to control the octagon better as areas of improvement in his game after his last fight. We’ll what better way to test your skills than going against a great jujitsu practitioner, then again, if I was Pettis I would try and keep the fight standing lol

  3. tim says:

    He wont fight till Feb because there are just way too many xbox games coming out.. and he is true to his training out of the gym as he is to his training with his beloved 360

  4. Brandon says:

  5. fueled by hate says:

    I would love to see Rampage SMASH King Ho!

  6. Joe says:

    lauzon got pwned by sotiropolous though in the grappling…. i think its pretty even, pettis might have better striking

  7. Brian B says:

    I don’t understand what’s going on these days with fighters and fans thinking they make the match-ups. Why all the articles before UFC announces a fight now? I guess we are running out of topics.

  8. Eric says:

    i’ve been a true fan of J Lau since TUF. I KNOW he’s going to win this fight! Technique over hype =X …hahahaha

  9. Creature says:

    Well this should be good, if Lauzon can finally get his damn cardio in check ill be pulling on him to win a close UD

  10. RCS says:

    Pettis is a bad match up for Joe. IF, the Pettis that grappled with Ben for five rounds shows up Joe is in trouble.

    • Joe says:

      idk why people put pettis out for this one, i don’t think he’s “all hype,” he is a pretty good fighter.
      not saying joe lauzon isn’t either, they’re both very skilled

  11. The natural says:

    Well what even happens everybody shld know neither of these guys are in top eight win or loose there still not even ready for level of comp that guys like edgar or Maynard defeated on there way up if u look back the lw div was the most stacked before Edgar and Maynard cleared out div 90% guys they fought were greats that was the start of the end of them
