Awesome Article by Joe Lauzon

Posted in UFC/MMA News and Notes with tags , on August 3, 2009 by Maxwell Destree

This is a great article written by UFC fighter Joe Lauzon.  He is defending MMA against an uninformed, ignorant fool that calls MMA human dog fighting.  Lauzon is a college educated fighter, and now he can also add MMA embassador to his resume’.  It’s definately a good read, and very informative.
