Joe Lauzon, who is right up there in terms of UFC “Fight Night” bonuses with Anderson Silva, was recently awarded his brown belt in Brazilian ju-jitsu.
Lauzon, winner of 22 MMA fights and 18 via submission, was given his belt by Ricky Lundell.
“Pumped to get my brown belt today from (Lundell),” he recently posted on Twitter.
Lauzon (22-8) is coming off a loss to Jim Miller to close out 2012. He has gone 1-2 in his last three, but is 5-4 in his previous nine fights overall.
