Joe Lauzon Utterly Outclasses Curt Warburton at UFC Live 4

Ultimate Fighter veteran and fan favorite Joe Lauzon showed Brit Curt Warburton what a huge yawning chasm exists between the mid- and bottom tiers of the UFC. Lauzon may not be quite at the level of top contender, but he certainly has more than enough to thrash the bottom feeders of the UFC's 155lb division.

UFC on Versus 4 results: Joe Lauzon defeats Curt Warburton by submission (kimura) at 1:58 of round 1.

 

 

Lauzon came out aggressive early and tagged Warburton with a tasty combination of punches that sent him reeling. Once on the ground, Lauzon wasted no time in grabbing an arm and securing a kimura. He had to advance position from mount to triangle control on his back to force the tap, but it looked painful.

Warburton stood up looking like a rooster with a twisted wing, holding his left arm limply at his side. Lauzon oozed confidence and stalked the cage like a cougar prowling a remote exurban jogging trail built too high up in the mountains. He sent a clear message to any lower level UFC lightweight with the bad judgement to sign a fight agreement with "Joe Lauzon" written on it.
