Lightweight Dan Lauzon has been released by the UFC after suffering back-to-back losses to Cole Miller and Efrain Escudero, but will likely return to the promotion after gaining experience outside the Octagon.
“His contract was terminated. He’s just got to go back and get more experience. Dany is very very young guy,” Joe Cavallaro, Lauzon’s friend and WCF promoter, told The Boston Herald. “He is a tremendous fighter. He needs to get the right training, the right camp and get a handful of wins again. I was talking to Joe Silva about it and he said ‘we’ll definitely have him back. We love him, he’s a tough kid. He just needs more experience, a consistent camp.’ He did learn a lot from this fight.”
Prior to his latest loss to Escudero at UFC 114 in May, Lauzon’s training was called into question by his older brother and UFC lightweight Joe Lauzon, who said he failed to meet their expectations preparing for the bout and declined to corner him for the fight.
