Lauzon has made a living off beating good-but-not-great opponents, and doing it in exciting fashion. That makes him worthy of a spot on a stacked UFC 155 main card, but it also makes him one of the lower-rated guys there.
A veteran of the UFC since 2006, Lauzon has become a mainstay in the promotion's tough 155-pound weight class. He's taken down Jens Pulver (when that still meant a little), Jeremy Stephens, Melvin Guillard and Jamie Varner. However, he's never truly been able to break into the division's upper echelon.
When given the chance to add a top name to his hit-list, Lauzon has always faltered. Kenny Florian and Anthony Pettis each stopped him, as did George Sotiropoulos when he was on top of his game.
He'll get another chance at a signature win though, when he takes on Jim Miller on Saturday night. The matchup has Fight of the Night potential written all over it.
