Maynard's gonna beat the hell out of him.

Glad they got Gray someone who won't do laps around the ring though.

This is not a competitive fight IMO. Barring a fluke I think this should be short and brutal.

Pretty sure all of the TUF season five will face each other at some point.

Joe has some good submissions so you can't count him out but i'm expecting a beatdown and his receiving it. Maynards making a run at the title shot again.

I like this match up. I think Maynard will smash Lauzon but Lauzon is always very game which should make this a good fight.

Maynard is like a Hulked up Version of Jamie Varner. And Varner was doing really well untill he broke his hand in that fight. I see Gray KO'ing him on his feet or just pounding him out on the mat.

I can see this being pretty even on the feet, that is until someone lands a bomb.. on the ground grey should take it despite joes craftiness

Head-butting fists and KOing the air is not effective striking.

Great fight but pretty confident in Maynard.

Some of these responses have me scratching my head.

Maynard is going to smash Lauzon and/or KO him?

Who exactly does Gray Maynard ever go out there and smash or KO?

The most likely scenario is Gray going out there and hugging Lauzon and controlling him for three rounds.

Maynard doesn't do too well against savvy submission players and I think his ground game is incredibly over rated, in fact, I think his entire game is over rated.

When it comes down to it, he's just another prototype wrestle-boxer with quite an underwhelming ground game.

I'm picking Lauzon to pull off the huge upset and rock and sub Maynard in this fight.
