    Mac Danzig Dishes on Joe Lauzon, Retirement, Seeking Perfection, and More

    ďI donít really have boring fights. Any time Iíve had a fight that wasnít that exciting Ė it takes two to tango. On my side of things, Iíve never put out a boring fight, and I never plan on it, and I think thatís why I still have my spot with the company and why they know that Iím always game to fight whoever. Lauzon is very similar; I look at him as a very similar fighter in that regard Ė he puts it all on the line, and heís fought some really tough guys, always steps up. The great thing about Lauzon Ė and I think Iím kind of the same Ė heíll seize the opportunities to finish in any way possible, and thatís what makes those Fight of the Night performances. Heís not just sitting back on a lead. He doesnít score a takedown and then run the rest of the round because he knows he has that round in the bag; heís not a point fighter. Heís going in for the kill, and I think Iím the same. I think weíre pretty evenly matched, and itís just going to come down to who wants it more.Ē
    ďIím a fan of the sport. Iím a fan of MMA and a fan of boxing Ė and I like all those great fights that were just brilliant pieces of spontaneous art unfolding, and thatís what really draws me to the sport. Thatís why I train, thatís why I became a fighter, and I want to put on some performances like that. Win, lose, or draw, I really just want to be a part of some classic fights.Ē
    ďI donít want to take permanent damage though, and that is a very real thing. This is what we all sign up for Ė this sport is dangerous; itís a lot safer than other sports, but weíre still knocking each other out. That takes a toll on your body. My heart is still in it 100 percent, but I want to make sure that when Iím 65, Iím sharp and I donít have any kind of problems with my memory. I want to be running marathons and with it in my 60s; thatís the main thing. (However), if this is my last fight, you better believe Iím not going out easy.Ē
    And if you want beef, then bring the ruckus

    I never really liked Danzig, but I typically enjoy his fights. That being said, Joe is the reason I started watching MMA and will root for him over anybody.

    Lauzon: Danzig will pay for my last loss

    "I try not to dwell on losses for too long afterwards," said Lauzon. "But I'll always want to get that one back."

    "I can't speak for him but I know how it feels to want to get another win real badly. All the fight night awards don't make you feel better about a loss."

    "I can't wait to get back into the Octagon on Saturday. I think he's a better match up for me, in terms of speed. The idea is to make Mac pay for what I felt losing the last time."

    joe has gotten his ass kicked in his last two fights hopefully he bounces back here in a very winnable fight for him.
    "DO YOU THINK I'M JUST GOING TO SIT THERE AND LET YOU KILL ME JON???"

    Joe better win. Danzig is one of those guys who tell a joke someone else mad a killing with and no one would get it. Hes just a dry dude

    I keep forgetting that Danzig is still employed with the UFC. He is definitely one of the biggest ultimate fighter winner busts (when they actually had experienced fighters going through the show).
