This according to a report from MMAWeekly.com, which has the following quotes from Lauzon:
"I'm always down for whatever the UFC wants. It sounds like that's a fight that's super exciting, so I'm all about it. I talked to Joe Silva, he's all about it, Pettis seems to be about it, I'm about it, so I'm sure it's going to happen. I don't know exactly when, I'm trying to get on the Super Bowl card. I think that would be awesome."
Using Lauzon to spruce up the Super Bowl weekend fight card is a grand idea. In 11 career fights inside the Octagon, "J-Lau" has walked away with nine bonus awards. Even his three UFC losses have been cushioned by "Fight of the Night" bonuses.
He's got a great opponent tailor made to bring home bonus number 10.
Anthony Pettis came to the UFC with a ton of hype, a WEC lightweight championship belt and a guaranteed title shot in hand.
And for his efforts, he's getting a shot against one of the most seasoned veterans of the lightweight division.
If these two want to win "Fight of the Night," they'll have to do so up against some seriously stiff competition. UFC 143 features Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre defending his title against Stockton bad boy Nick Diaz.
