UFC Quick Quote: Joe Lauzon knee surgery update with pic

"I think my knee looks pretty good! When I had just my meniscus done the last two times, it was a lot more swollen. Stitches seem clean and it wasn’t bleeding too bad. One of the incisions was bleeding a tiny bit but that was it. There is a pretty good sized raised bump about 3 inches below my knee though. Not sure what it is but I am sure its fine.I am supposed to go back and see my doctor in 7 to 10 days so we will make an appointment on Monday and see whats next."

-- Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight contender Joe Lauzon provides a post-op update via his official Web site on the season-ending knee surgery he recently underwent to repair a torn meniscus. It is an injury that will more than likely keep The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 5 alum on the sidelines for the remainder of 2009; however, he appears to already be off to fast recovery. Lauzon most recently saw action against Jeremy Stephens in the UFC Fight Night 17 main event in Tampa, Fla., on Feb. 14. He took out "Lil’ Heathen" with a second round armbar to notch his second straight win inside the Octagon.
