    I think Lauzon is a solid bet in this fight. He's been impressive in his fights so far and to me, Florian is one of the most over rated fighters in the UFC right now.

    Lauzon is at +186 as well as training with BJ Penn.

    dot and dot

    At least Lauzon's nickname is somewhat ironic. K-Flo is just plain dumb.

    its kenflo. not k-flo, you stupid fucks already know this.

    I think it's an interesting match up. Mainly due to kenflo having no wrestling abilities. If he did i think this match would be in the bag for him.

    I do agree he is the most overrated fighter in the UFC, but he is on point with his ground game as well as his stand up.

    i think to win J-Lau need to either put a ton of pressure on him on their feet, or land some big shots from a dangerous guard.

    hoping j-lau wins via highlight reel KO

    i dont see him (Kenny "i finish fights" "kenflo" Florian) being overrated since no one rates him highly. he puts out a lot of hard work in the cage and i think he performs well. im not a big fan of the guy, but i have no disrespect for him either. the last time he really looked bad was at 185 when he fought diego, even sherk couldnt finish him (however, sherk isnt interested in finishing fights against jiu jitsu guys).
    i see this as another match that no one expects florian to win, yet he somehow manages to submit them. :wavey:

    Florian being overrated comes from getting a title shot primarily from being on TuF. He has no real wins over anyone of note - I'm not counting his Din Thomas win as Din blew his knee out.

    meh, zuffa/ufc/dana always rushes fighters into the spotlight well before they are ready.
    hype, then 1-2 quick wins, then title fight, then commercials and profit.

    at least they were honest with the tuf comeback season (we're gonna have a bunch of fighters nobody cares about on tv for 6 weeks, then one of them is going to get a title shot that they really dont deserve).

    .

    Agreed. In this case it leads to what I think are some very good odds for the betting fans.
     
  12. has Lauzon beaten anyone he couldn't just blitz immediately?

    On TUF it seemed like he totally crapped out when he went up against someone that wouldn't just roll over when he put a lot of pressure on them immediately.

    agreed

    thats my understanding of him.
     
  15. don't forget that he lasted 5 rounds with sherk. Getting his ass beat from bell to bell, by a guy that isn't really a monster finisher.

    People give him a lot of credit for that though, for some reason.

    He couldnt submit manny because manny's arms are about a foot long and he doesn't have a neck. Its not his fault
