Lauzon wins again at WCF

WILMINGTON, Mass.- The young guns came out to put on a show on Friday night at The Shriners Auditorium. UFC veteran Dan Lauzon was dominant in his performance against Brendan Hoxie. Then, in the main event of the night, Sityodtong fighter, Mike Campbell proved to everyone why the hype surrounding him was greatly deserved.

Lauzon came out looking focused and ready to go in a bout many would deem fight of the night. Right off the bat, he came out and threw a spin to a leaping high kick that connected flush on Hoxie's jaw, dropping him to his knees. Lauzon tried to finish, but his opponent stayed active from his back and avoided punishment. Lauzon motioned for him to stand up and dropped him again shortly after with a crisp punch combination, but still could not finish him on the ground. The rest of the round seemed to go the same as Lauzon dropped Hoxie once more with a punch before the round ended.

Hoxie continued to defend well in round two by staying alive off of his back after Lauzon dropped him twice, once with a punch combination and then again with a superman punch. This time Hoxie's nose was cut open and bleeding pretty heavily. They both got back to their feet and Lauzon dropped him yet again, this time with a vicious straight left. Hoxie rolled to his back, but this time Lauzon threw a cartwheel punch/guard pass that rocked him and forced the referee to stop the fight.

In the main event, up-and-coming middleweight Campbell looked calm while avoiding Rich Moskowitz's offensive attack. Moskowitz looked for a takedown shortly into the first round that was defended well by Campbell. After getting back to their feet Campbell rocked Moskowitz with a punch and forced him to cover up and circle away. Campbell followed him patiently around the ring and then threw a nice punch combination that floored Moskowitz. Campbell let off a few more punches to the face of his stunned opponent before the referee intervened and stopped the bout. At just 25-years-old with a 5-0 record Campbell appears to have a promising future ahead of him.

One of the biggest notables of the night was Team Bombsquad's 205-pound young gun, Jon Jones. Jones came out and took control right from the start, powering Parker Porter to the ground effortlessly. He stood up seconds later and allowed for his opponent to get back to his feet as well. From there he shuffled in closing the distance and fired off a beautiful punch combination. Parker dropped to the mat and Jones pounced on him with some more brutal punches before the referee could push him off of Porter.
