If there’s a more exciting fighter to watch in the UFC than Joe Lauzon, they certainly have not proven it in 2012.

While Lauzon’s record sits at 1-2 for the year, no one would look at it as anything less than impressive especially after his last two fights received “Fight of the Night” honors, and most likely “Fight of the Year” by most standards.

Lauzon gutted out two nasty cuts that were absolutely gushing blood for much of his fight at UFC 155 against Jim Miller to almost pull off two late submissions. He fell short by decision, but Lauzon still deserves a ton of credit for the performance and his ability to make every fight he’s in memorable when it’s over.

To Lauzon the journey to the fight is as important as the end result.

“I don’t really care how the fight goes so much as long as I gave it my all. I go out there and I do the best I can in training and if I did a great job in training, then I really don’t care about how the fight ends,” Lauzon said Saturday night.

“If I lose to somebody, I’m glad it’s a good guy like Jim (Miller).”

Following the fight, Lauzon visited the doctors who were able to seal up the huge gash over his eye that produced the majority of the blood that ended up thrown all over the Octagon during his fight with Miller.

All told according to Lauzon it took 40 stitches to close the wounds, but all in all, he’s doing just fine. (picture released was courtesy of Lauzon from his Instagram account @JoeLauzon)

“40 stitches and a lot of lost blood but I’m all good,” Lauzon wrote on Twitter on Sunday. “Props to Jim Miller on a great fight!”

Lauzon picked up his 12th post fight award at UFC 155 as well, which ties UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva for the most in company history. It’s rarified air that Lauzon breathes in that category and even though he’s going home with a loss, he can hold his head proud with the performance he pulled off on Saturday night.
