UFC 155 Video: Dana White Video Blog Day 1, Joe Lauzon Wins $6K in Sparring
As White narrates for the camera, a friend of his called "Nick The Tooth'" was making good on a drunken grappling challenge against Lauzon with the caveat that Lauzon would win $1000 from White for each successful submission attempt.
In shades of an actual UFC event, the friendly sparring session was held in a full-size Octagon with ringside officials, a post-production crew and even a referee (one of Lauzon's training staff). Judging by the footage, the challenge went down at the KeyArena in Seattle, Washington, which places the match around the recent UFC on Fox 5 card earlier this month.
Despite Nick being the larger man, Lauzon effortlessly pulled off six submissions in a single three-minute match, netting a $6000 prize from his boss. In order, Lauzon showed off an armbar, front-lock guillotine, toehold, armbar, a flying triangle choke and a third armbar.
Nick The Tooth walked away from the match a bit bloody but still had plenty of praise for Lauzon:
"It was a rough one. I didn't think he would have that kind of strength. He was strong, he was fast [and] he was explosive."
Lauzon's submission skills will almost certainly face a much stiffer test when he fights against Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt Jim Miller this Saturday at UFC 155. Although it's not a requirement to win, Lauzon also aims to net a record-breaking 12th post-fight bonus in the UFC, which would officially top Anderson Silva's 11 post-fight bonuses.
