Joe Lauzon
 
Its completly retarded how theyre putting Lauzon on this show. He'd already made a name for himself beating Pulver and doesnt need the spot light of TUF. Now if he wins the UFC will get pretty much nothing out of it. If he wasnt in it theyd be assured a new star at 155 at the end of the season. He's obviously going to be the favorite going in and now if he wins this season will be pointless.

If he wins it will be semi-pointless, as in he's already beaten better fighters. But if he loses, it will be even worse. People know him and if he loses to an unknown fighter on TUF, it will hurt his development and marketability.

They just put him on for ratings. Notice how he's already announced to be on Pulver's team. It's cheap but I'm sure people will be interested in their "feud" on the show.

I know I thought of that too but other than that he does no good. I mean the whole point of the show is to find the next young star. Lauzon is already just that.

Well i think is good that hes on the show cause now were guarenteed the winner will be a good fighter unlike the previous show.

Yeah but the point is to find a NEW talent

I think the divsion is already stacked the way it is. Huerta, Sherk, Franca, Fisher, Stevenson, Guillard, and Lauzon. I dont think they need another new star.

Edit: oh wait i forgot Penn and Pulver shit this Divsion is stacked!

And Din Thomas and Clay Guida are both pretty good too.

Well the rules say that you can only have 1 fight in the octagon to be on the show and thats all he had. This is his chance to get the big contract which is what he probably wants. I'm sure he will get more out of going on the show than he would if he didn't. I know what your saying, but rules are rules. He can't help it if he beat one of the best LW UFC has to offer. We've only seen him in one fight, for all we know that was just a lucky punch and he really has nothing to offer. It's best to put him in there with some unknowns and find out early in his career than to put him in there with some really tough competition and let him find out the hard way that he is a hack.
