Joe Lauzon cuts hard

Looking at Joe Lauzon, you’d figure he probably has to drink a cup full of tiny lead balls to hit 155. The guy looks like the “Before” picture from a bowflex ad. But appearances can be deceiving, because this dude weighed 185 pounds on Wednesday afternoon and is cutting 30 fucking pounds in 48 hours.

This is apparently the standard cut for Joe, although God help him if he doesn’t make weight. Just look at Travis Lutter, Gabe Rudiger, and Chris Price, who all failed to make weight and have fallen off the face of the earth for their crime. I can’t imagine Dana White being happy if Joe misses the cut after bragging about being 30 pounds overweight two days before weigh-in.

    30 LBS in 48 hours.. That is unhealthy. I guess he has to go TWO days of not eating or drinking and just pure work out (able to lose 20 lbs for one day if you do this). By then he would be drained of energy… A fighter should cut weight 2 weeks prior to a fight, so that yoru body can get adjust to the new weight and be able to perform at its top condition. But man, two days and 30 lbs…. Fuck thats crazy!!!

    Travis Lutter explained in a recent interview that he is inactive because of a bulging disc in his neck. He’s waiting to have surgery.

    what a fucking moron. You can’t expect to lose that much weight and be in any condition to fight. Is it that hard to just have better daily habits?

    I think Mr. Lauzon might be trolling.

  • godzillad

    To be fair all you’re basing that on is a collage. For all we know Baby J has been dieting hard for like three weeks and this is the lowest he can get before cutting. Not uncommon. Hell, Shields was 190 24 hours before Septembers EXC weigh ins and Thomson was at 180 pounds 24 hours before the weigh ins of the Playboy show.

    this can’t be good…but I imagine he has done this before. He must be a “trap” fighter…lol

  • Lifer

    He has trolled so many times before.. yawn.

    Isn’t he supposed to hold up a newspaper to verify the date the picture was taken? These pictures are also fake, no one leaves toilet paper rolls on the ground.

  • Michaelthebox

    I gotta imagine he’s trolling. 185 isn’t much smaller than Hughes, and Lauzon ain’t no Hughes.

  • fightlinker

    oh man … if he just pulled one over on me, I’mma gonna be pissed

  • victorpoprock

    Didn’t he also say a few months ago that he was fighting Karo? It’s not unheard of to lose that much water weight in a day or two, but Lauzon is a known prankster. Who knows if this is true or not.

    I do admit, when thinking about it … it makes sense that Lauzon might be trying to fuck with his opponent’s head.
