Joe Lauzon and Gray Maynard will meet in an interesting lightweight affair this December at UFC 155. The two are each looking to place themselves in future title contention, and a win over the other would do just that.
Maynard is a former UFC lightweight contender, having fought Frankie Edgar to a draw before being defeated by him in the third meeting between the two. "The Bully" recently said that he asked for the Lauzon fight, but "J-Lau" says that is not true.
Lauzon, coming off a win over Jamie Varner, posted a picture on Twitter that involved a message between himself and UFC matchmaker Joe Silva.
Lauzon asked, "Did I ask for Gray first, or did he ask for me first?" Silva wrote back, "You did."
