Something almost every fighter will tell you is that they fight in the UFC to entertain the fans. Joe Lauzon knows all about it.
Although he hasn't climbed to within title conversations as of yet, Lauzon puts on a show whenever he enters the Octagon.
The UFC rewards efforts such as this with their "Fight Night" bonuses. Lauzon is only second for number of bonuses received, that have been given out since UFC Ultimate Fight Night 3 in January 2006. That night, Melvin Guillard and Josh Neer received $20,000 for "Fight of the Night."
Lauzon is set to face Jim Miller at UFC 155, where he will look to move into a tie (or break) the UFC record for most fight night bonuses.
For now, here are some guys that, like Lauzon, have won over fans, media and colleagues alike with excellent performances and amazing finishes.
