Joe Lauzon Out 12-14 Months After Knee Surgery


UFC lightweight contender Joe Lauzon breaks the news on his official website.

Well, it looks like I will be having ACL surgery next week. I have had a history of bad luck with my knees. I have already had two knee surgeries… meniscectomies on both knees….The surgery scheduled for next week will not be so simple….To make things much worse, I need to have my ACL repaired as well. They think my torn ACL is causing my knee to shift ever so slightly and its destroying my meniscus.

Long story short… I will be off my feet for a month to a month and a half… training SUPER light in about 4 or 5 months… training decently hard in about 9 months and fighting in around 12-14 months. Its going to be a long rehab… but thats how it goes.

Bad news from J-Lau, sitting back 12-14 month in your prime can’t be easy for a fighter.

Joe Lauzon last competed at UFC Fight Night 17, defeating Jeremy Stephens by second round armbar.


  1. thats a shame

  2. UFC veteran Din Thomas signs three-fight deal with Affliction..

    I thought Allfiction was over after this Event??? also Din Thomas at 145 will be a beast

  3. Man thats to bad i really liked this kid, his potential, and where he was going…hope he gets better soon

  4. Yeah this really sucks. He’s always fun to watch.

  5. i’ve always liked him ………..even more when i saw he took out Jens Pulver…….lol …… seems like he always comes to fight also….

  6. whodini: I Like just about ANYBODY who beats Jens.

    Except for BJ….

  7. B.J. never looks in shape ….he looks like he should be mowing a lawn somewhere

  8. Report: Mike Swick vs. Ben Saunders added to UFC 99

    i think swick will be to much for Ben..but good match up

  9. Ben's a good fighter but I think Swick deserves a better fight. He should probably be two wins from a title shot.

  10. Damn, Joe is a good fighter. Hope he comes back 100%. Swick is definately a highly underrated fighter in my opinion.

  11. Swick will make quick work of Ben Saunders

  12. I would say the only thing Saunders has over Swick is those long ass limbs.

Speak Your Mind


9 − two =
