The striking aspect of this fight will be surprisingly close. Both men are underrated boxers with shocking power.
In one corner you have Lauzon, who only owns four career knockouts. This stat may be deceiving because when he rocks his opponent, he will submit them on the ground (Melvin Guillard, for example).
Former title challenger Maynard has displayed his improved boxing in both title fights with Frankie Edgar, hurting the former champion with technique and power strikes. Maynard can put people to sleep with his hands, which highlights his transformation into a complete fighter.
The Xtreme Couture product earns the edge here.
