Joe Lauzon Opens Up About Fighter Pay

UFC lightweight Joe Lauzon will feature on the opening bout of the UFC on FOX Sports 1 #1: Sonnen vs. Shogun in his home town of Boston opposite TUF finalist Michael Johnson.

With fighter pay being a hot topic, the submission whiz shared his stance on the situation in an interview with 1460 AM Boston radio show.

“We’re paid fighters, so getting in to the UFC doesn’t mean you’re gonna have this cushy job. You get paid based on how your performance goes. I’ve been very fortunate where I have had some great fights and I’ve been rewarded with some bonuses. I couldn’t be happier with the pay structure. It all comes down to people wanting to see you fight.”

Find out if Lauzon can make it 2-0 on his turf next month (AUGUST 17, 2013), for the UFC’s big debut on FOX Sports 1.
