Dan Lauzon earns WCF win over weekend; Chris Horodecki at Affliction now on deck

World Championship Fighting (WCF) put on another action-packed event this past Friday, featuring several fast rising young stars, most notably Dan "The Upgrade" Lauzon (11-2). More than 3,500 packed the Aleppo Shriners Auditorium in Wilmington, Mass., on November 14, to watch "The Upgrade" and others compete on the card.

Lauzon -- younger brother of UFC lightweight fighter and The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) alum Joe Lauzon -- made his third straight start for the organization and fourth thus far in his career. In the process, he scored a first round technical knockout win in less than a minute over Justin Hammertrum after catching a kick to the body and countering it with a vicious straight right hand.

The punch hurt Hammertrum. And a finisher the caliber of Lauzon had no problems pounding him out from there.

With the win, Lauzon now has all 11 of his career wins via stoppage -- five by submission and six by technical knockout. He's put together seven straight wins since making his UFC debut a losing one to Spencer Fisher at UFC 64 and then following that up with a loss to Deividas Taurosevicius at Cage Fury Fighting Championships 3 only three months later.

Lauzon gained some notoriety after being featured on an episode during the second season of the popular reality series "Tapout" this summer. He continues to improve every time out, and it shouldn't be long before we see this kid back in the UFC octagon.

In the meantime, he will next challenge former International Fight League (IFL) lightweight champion and posterboy, Chris Horodecki, at Affliction: "Day of Reckoning" on January 24. That's a good fight.
