Joe Lauzon is among the most entertaining fighters on earth.
In this, the first episode of Joe Lauzon’s video blog for UFC Fight Night 108, we see Joe arrive in Nashville, ahead of his fight with Stevie Ray. He is shown the weekly schedule of events, and then we see him checking out his Reebok gear. He brought some of his old Reebok gear and they said if he wears that, he’ll be fined. Interesting.
We then follow Joe to a small room where he signs his autograph time after time on a series of posters. It’s the less glamorous side of the UFC. We see him pass Sam Alvey in a hallway and true to form, Alvey is all smiles. Watching Joe walk through this for the umpteenth time, it really seems routine. He does a little AMA session and someone asks him about his post-fight party. He says, he’ll probably find a Five Guys, or some other burger place and eat “like a fat kid. Maybe some ice cream.” He’s so at ease.
We see Joe being interviewed by John Morgan from MMA Junkie, all part of doing his media responsibilities for the week. He has a great attitude about fighting. He’s put in the work, done all he can, and now all he has to do is fight. Wednesday night, Joe weighs 165 pounds and we see him doing a light workout.
The video closes with Joe eating a big burger and looking into the camera, and saying, “156, here I come.” Classic Joe Lauzon.
