Dan Lauzon vs Justin Hammerstrom fight added to WCF 5 card Nov. 14

Dan Lauzon will return to action against Justin "Sledge" Hammerstrom at the next World Championship Fighting (WCF) event, which is scheduled for Aleppo Shriners Auditorium in Wilmington, Mass., on November 14.

"The Upgrade" -- the youngest fighter to ever compete inside the Octagon and younger brother of top UFC lightweight contender Joe Lauzon -- is the winner of six consecutive fights, including a second round technical knockout of Brendan Hoxie back in June under the WCF banner.

His recent streak earned him a step up in competition against former IFL lightweight champion Chris Horodecki at Affliction: "Day of Reckoning" on January 24. Lauzon is taking this fight against Hammerstrom to ensure that ring rust is not a factor when it comes time to clash with the Canadian.

Here’s a snip on the decision:

"I really wanted to stay sharp and keep my momentum. I've fought for them [WCF] three times now and they take great care of me, and I love fighting for them in front of their fans and my friends and family. These (Boston) fans really are the best sports fans in the world. Justin is a really tough veteran and a former champion. It would be a huge mistake for me to look past him. He'll see the best Dan Lauzon on November 14."

He better not ... an injury would spell disaster for a very good opportunity to perform on a major pay-per-view (PPV) event against a top-ranked 155-pound fighter.
