Joseph Edward Lauzon Jr. (born May 22, 1984) is an American mixed martial artist competing in the UFC's Lightweight division. A well rounded fighter, he is tied with Nate Diaz with having the second most post-fight bonus awards in UFC history, behind Donald Cerrone. Joe's younger brother, Dan Lauzon, is also a mixed martial artist.
Early life and background
Joseph Edward Lauzon Jr. was born on May 22, 1984, in Brockton, Massachusetts. He lived there until he was in the third grade, when he moved to East Bridgewater. Lauzon lived on a small farm and enjoyed riding horses. The young Lauzon and his friends had an interest in professional wrestling, and would re-enact moves on Lauzon's trampoline. Lauzon did not begin training in the martial arts until his junior year at East Bridgewater High School, after seeing a demonstration that piqued his interest. Lauzon graduated from Wentworth Institute of Technology in 2007 with a Bachelor's degree in computer science. He worked as a network administrator in Cambridge, Massachusetts before he began training in mixed martial arts full-time.
Mixed martial arts career
Lauzon's first amateur fight was in 2002. He held a 5–3 record as an amateur.
In 2004, Lauzon had his first cage fight, winning with a first round armbar in a local Massachusetts promotion, Mass Destruction. Lauzon then went on an eight fight winning streak with all the fights ended via submission. Lauzon won an eight-man tournament, defeating three fighters in one night in the World Fighting League and was crowned the WFL Grand Prix Champion. Lauzon was also named 2004 Massachusetts fighter of the year by local Massachusetts MMA outlets.
The Ultimate Fighter
Lauzon was a contestant on The Ultimate Fighter 5, which featured lightweights exclusively. He was on B.J. Penn's team, against a team coached by Jens Pulver. Lauzon defeated Brian Geraghty in the preliminary round. He then defeated Cole Miller in the quarterfinals. The win was somewhat controversial due to an illegal strike to the back of Miller's head. Miller appeared obviously dazed by the illegal strike and was given time to recover. However, when action was restarted, it was clear that Cole was still feeling the effects of the strike. Lauzon capitalized on it and won the fight. In the semi-finals, Lauzon lost a unanimous decision to Manvel Gamburyan. In the finale, he defeated Brandon Melendez via submission (triangle choke) at 2:09 of round two.
Ultimate Fighting Championship
At UFC 78 Lauzon submitted previously undefeated Jason Reinhardt by rear-naked choke in the first round. Lauzon quickly took Reinhardt down before moving to the north-south position. Reinhardt rolled, giving Lauzon his back, and Lauzon quickly sunk in the rear-naked choke for a quick submission victory.
On April 2, 2008, Kenny Florian defeated Lauzon in the main event of UFC Fight Night 13 by TKO via strikes from mount in the second round. The first round was back and forth as Florian opened up a cut on Lauzon's head with elbows and took his back while Lauzon landed several takedowns and attempted several submissions. Florian opened the second round with a takedown and soon advanced to mount where he landed multiple unanswered strikes until the fight was waved off.
Lauzon defeated Kyle Bradley by TKO (punches) in round two at UFC Fight Night 15. In the first round Bradley connected with a punch and rocked Lauzon. Lauzon managed to recover and continued to trade with Bradley in a close first round. In the second round Lauzon scored a takedown and transitioned quickly into mount before taking Bradley's back. Lauzon landed several punches from this position until the referee stepped in to save Bradley.
Lauzon was scheduled to fight former WEC Lightweight Champion, Hermes Franca on February 7, 2009, in the main event for UFC Fight Night 17. However, Franca pulled out of the event with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. Jeremy Stephens stepped in as a late replacement. Lauzon defeated Stephens by armbar in the second round.
Lauzon was expected to face Terry Etim on August 28, 2010, at UFC 118, but Etim had to withdraw from the bout due to injury. Lauzon was instead set to fight fellow Ultimate Fighter season 5 castmate Gabe Ruediger. During the UFC 118 weigh-ins Ruediger brought Lauzon a cake that read "Sorry for your loss". Lauzon defeated Ruediger, who is a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, via armbar in 2:01 of round one having completely dominated him for the entire fight. According to commentator Joe Rogan, Gabe "was never in it for a second."
Lauzon faced George Sotiropoulos on November 20, 2010, at UFC 123. The fight began with an action-packed first round, that saw Lauzon set the pace. However, by the end of the round, Lauzon began to tire and saw Sotiropoulos began to gain momentum. The second round saw a fatigued and passive Joe Lauzon. After a scramble, Sotiropoulous ended up on top position and torqued a kimura to force the tap-out.
Lauzon was briefly linked to a bout with Charles Oliveira on November 19, 2011 at UFC 138. However, Oliveira instead faced Donald Cerrone on August 14, 2011 at UFC Live: Hardy vs. Lytle, replacing an injured Paul Taylor.
Lauzon was expected to face Terry Etim on August 4, 2012 at UFC on Fox 4. However, Etim was forced out of the bout with an injury and replaced by Jamie Varner. In a back-and-forth fight that saw both men rocked, Lauzon secured the victory after locking in a triangle choke on Varner at 2:44 of the third round. His performance earned him the Fight of the Night and Submission of the Night honors and a Fight of the Year nomination at the World MMA Awards.
Lauzon was expected to face Gray Maynard on December 29, 2012 at UFC 155. However, Maynard pulled out of the bout citing a knee injury and was replaced by Jim Miller. Miller defeated Lauzon via unanimous decision. The back and forth action earned both participants Fight of the Night honors.
Lauzon faced Michael Chiesa on September 5, 2014 at UFC Fight Night 50. After a back and forth fight, Lauzon defeated Chiesa via TKO in the second round after opening a significant cut above Chiesa's right eye, forcing a doctor's stoppage. The performance earned both participants Fight of the Night honors.
Lauzon was expected to face Diego Sanchez on November 15, 2014 at UFC 180, replacing an injured Norman Parke. However, on October 23, it was announced that injuries to both Sanchez and Lauzon led to the pairing being scrapped altogether.
After sustaining virtually no damage during his previous fight, Lauzon was quickly rescheduled to rematch Jim Miller on August 27, 2016 at UFC on Fox 21. Lauzon lost the rematch by split decision. Both participants were awarded a Fight of the Night bonus.
Lauzon next faced Marcin Held on January 15, 2017 at UFC Fight Night 103. He was awarded a controversial split decision victory, even stating he felt he lost the bout post-fight. Likewise, 16 out of 17 media pundits scored the bout for Held; the lone holdout scored the fight a draw.

Lauzon is married to Katie, and they have two sons, Joey (born 2014) and Jacob (born 2017). Joey was diagnosed with stage 4S neuroblastoma a week after he was born, and was finally cleared as cancer free in early 2019.
Lauzon's moniker, 'J-Lau', was given by friends who he trained with when he was in high school. Lauzon did not fancy his nickname as it is referenced to Jennifer Lopez and would prefer his nickname to be 'Baby Joe' instead.
|“||I don't like that “Creepy Joe” one. I don't like J-Lau, but I'm not going to trade it for another terrible one. You don't get to pick your own nickname. A couple of guys that I train with and have known since high school-they're the ones who started the “J-Lau” thing. I can't get away from it. It's been so long now. That's how people know me. Not everyone is an expert and could say 'Oh, he changed his nickname, you can't call him that anymore.' They know me as “J-Lau” so it's still going to be “J-Lau” to them. I'm stuck with it. it's a terrible nickname. Whatever. I hated j-lau at first because of the whole Jennifer Lopez reference. It kind of sucked and I tried to hate it at first. It was the same thing with‘Creepy Joe.’ I kind of liked ‘Baby Joe’ though. For BJ to be talking so much good stuff about me and for Rudy [Valentino] to say that I remind him of BJ, it was something else.BJ’s name comes from ‘Baby Jay’ and for him to say so many good things about me and then use a nick name for me that is kind of like his name was pretty cool. But ‘J-Lau’ stuck so it’s fine. At least it gets them to say my name right.||”|
