TV - UFC 155 - Dos Santos vs. Velasquez 2 -
Two of the most active and dangerous lightweights in the UFC will finally face each other this Saturday night (Dec. 29, 2012) as Jim Miller takes on Joe Lauzon in the co-main event of UFC 155 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Miller enters the fight after one of the most significant layoffs of his career, having not competed for seven months on the heels of his first submission defeat at the hands of Nate Diaz. In typical Miller fashion, he stepped in on relatively short notice for the injured Gray Maynard and is hoping a high profile victory over Lauzon will get him right back into the mix at 155 pounds.
Joe Lauzon scored a tremendous victory in his last bout, a thrilling third round submission against Jamie Varner on the national stage for UFC on Fox 4, which wiped the memory of his February knockout defeat to Anthony Pettis out of the minds of his rabid fans. The Boston native is hoping to finally cross over from potential to legitimate contender with a strong showing on Saturday night.
Will Miller get back on track in a big way against "J-Lau?" Can Lauzon score his second straight significant victory and finally enter the title picture? What's the key to victory for both men?
