East Bridgewater’s Joe Lauzon Wins UFC Bout Against Warburton

East Bridgewater, Massachusetts native Joe Lauzon made the trip down to Pittsburgh for his bout against England’s Curt Warburton for the UFC Live on Versus event on June 26. It was a trip to remember.

After losing his last fight to George Sotiropoulos in November,  Lauzon worked on his striking game to mix in with his incredible submission skills.  Both talents came in handy against Warburton.

After absorbing a few punches to the head and body, Lauzon landed a right-left combination that rocked Warburton and put him on his back. After a relentless ground-and-pound attack from Lauzon, which included powerful knees and vicious elbows,  he grabbed Warburton’s  right arm and set up a kimura to win the fight at the 1:58 mark.

UFC President Dana White awarded Lauzon with the “Submission of the Night,” adding $50,000 to his fight purse. After seeing Warburton’s arm pretty much get bent in half  what other choice did Dana White have?

So, let’s chalk up another point for Boston vs. England.  The Tea Party, Revolutionary War, War of 1812,  and now Lauzon’s win over Warburton. I think its time for England to start picking fights with some other cities and let us sit on our thrones. Oh, and before you think you have us beat in soccer, honestly, who cares about soccer?
