Joe Lauzon: Diaz Brothers “Shake Things Up,” Has Respect For Them

Joe Lauzon is an MMA fan at heart, and offered up his thoughts on Saturday’s UFC 158: St-Pierre vs. Diaz main event fight. UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre will defend his title against Nick Diaz from Montreal.

“Win or lose, I am a huge Diaz Brothers fan,” Lauzon posted on Facebook. “I always love watching both guys win or lose because they come to fight. They shake things up with interviews and media but I love it all because it gets boring with everyone giving the same canned responses all the time.

“MMA fans are very fair weather and I am sure if Nick wins, some will still hate him and say he was lucky or make excuses for GSP. If he loses, there will be no shortage of ‘told you so’ posts. It’s easy to bring attention to yourself after the result has already happened.

“Regardless or who you think is going to win… You gotta have respect for both guys right now… And I am sure it will go up after their fight.”

Currently, Lauzon is sidelined after a loss to Jim Miller late last year. He is 22-8 in his career, including 3-2 in his last five.
