Let me tell you, Dan was not looking for any kind of break for anything other than recovering his balls from his throat. Dan is the most stubborn kid I have ever met in my life. He does not want any shortcuts in anything and wants to earn everything he gets. He clearly got kicked in the balls and he took the amount of time he was given. If I got kicked in the balls I wouldn't want to tie me own shoes, nevermind go out and fight. It happens in fighting and in some cases you don't need the full time. In other cases, you do...and this was one of those cases. I honestly cannot believe how much shit Dan is catching over this. He gets fouled and then when he takes his time to recover he is the one that's wrong? He got hit in the nuts and he took his time to recover. That's it. Its not out fault Bobby Green consistently had terrible accuracy and hit Dan in the balls 3 times. After the third one, they gave Dan the option of the easy win. They told Dan that Bobby would be DQ'ed if he didn't want to continue. If Dan was looking for an easy way out, he would have said he didn't want to continue and take the easy win. It would have been the smart move, he could have collected his money and gone home with a win. Instead, he went out and showed those HUGE BALLS and finished the fight like a man.
-- UFC lightweight Joe Lauzon responds via The Underground Forum to the heat his brother Dan has been taking after his Affliction: "Day of Reckoning" brawl with Bobby Green this past weekend. "The Upgrade" took three unintentional blows to his yam-bag and needed some time to recover - prompting the haters to accuse him of being a drama queen. Lauzon was able to bounce back and submit Green via guillotine choke - but still got lit up in some of the message boards for "Ballgate."
