Joe Lauzon Wants Anthony Pettis on Feb. 4th at UFC 143 on Super Bowl Weekend

UFC lightweight submission Wizard, Joe Lauzon has made it no secret that he wants a potential fight with former WEC champion, Anthony Pettis, adding he’d like have it go down at UFC 143 in Las Vegas, Nevada on February 4th, 2012.

Lauzon, speaking via MMAWeekly, said:

“I have no idea what’s going on, I’m getting called out left and right. I must look like an easy target or something. I’m not really sure what’s going on. I’m always down for whatever the UFC wants. It sounds like that’s a fight that’s super exciting, so I’m all about it. I talked to Joe Silva, he’s all about it, Pettis seems to be about it, I’m about it, so I’m sure it’s going to happen. I don’t know exactly when, I’m trying to get on the Super Bowl card. I think that would be awesome.”

“I’m trying to make that happen, but I think it’s definitely going to happen, I just don’t know when. I really like watching Anthony fight. That to me is just as important, I like fighting guys who go for the finish. He’s got great stand-up, he’s working on his wrestling, which is still pretty good, and he’s good off his back too. I think it will be an exciting fight.”

“I don’t think either one of us are going to blow the other one out of the water with stand-up or ground. I think it will be a dog fight.”
