Joe Lauzon vs. Gray Maynard at UFC 155 in Las Vegas, Nevada on December 29th

A lightweight tilt between top contenders, Joe Lauzon and Gray Maynard will go down at UFC 155, which is the UFC’s traditional year-end event. Although not officially announced, UFC 155 takes place in Las Vegas, Nevada on December 29th, 2012 at a venue to be announced. UFC officials today announced the fight.

Lauzon recently scored “Fight of the Night” and “Submission of the Night” bonuses for his UFC on FOX 4 win over Jamie Varner earlier this month. He has won three of his last four fights, all via submission. The sole defeat came to top contender Anthony Pettis while wins came over, Melvin Guillard and Curt Warburton.

Maynard will look to build off a June split-decision win over Clay Guida. Prior to that he challenged for the UFC’s lightweight title, though he fought to a split draw and then suffered a knockout loss to then-champ Frankie Edgar in back-to-back fights.
