Lauzon to fight in WCF before turning focus to Affliction

Publish date:

Before Dan Lauzon debuts for Affliction against Chris Horodecki on Jan. 24, he will first get the chance to stay sharp in his game as he returns to World Championship Fighting on Nov. 14 to fight Justin Hammertrum in a lightweight contest on their upcoming card.

Lauzon was slated to face Horodecki at the Affliction: Day of Reckoning show when it had been slated for earlier this month, but the show was postponed. Opposed to sitting out for several months before stepping into his next fight, the youngest fighter to ever compete in the Ultimate Fighting Championship will instead get a tune-up fight first.

The younger brother of UFC lightweight Joe Lauzon, Dan has amassed an impressive record of 10-2 in his professional career and this will actually be his fourth fight under the banner of the WCF.

The WCF has become a popular brand in the northeast United States, mixing in a variety of local and national talent, while having many top names from MMA such as Kenny Florian, Marcus Davis and even UFC President Dana White, to help promote the shows.

The rest of the card has already been announced, including another top lightweight prospect in Muzaffar Abdurakhmanov, who has been a main training partner of Florian's as he prepares for his Nov. 15 showdown with JoeStevenson in the UFC.
