Joe Lauzon Says He Lives Out The Fantasies of IT Workers When He Fights

December 28, 2012 | Posted by Larry Csonka

– Joe Lauzon recently spoke about not having the typical athletic background of your average UFC fighter. Here are the highlights…

On Living Out The Fantasies of Others When He Fights: “I get tons of messages on Twitter from all these guys that are into IT stuff or are programmers or whatever. They all want to punch everyone at work, because in IT, when people need something, they’re freaking hounding you. When they don’t, they won’t even look in your direction. Their issue is always the most important thing. ‘This is the end of the world. This has to be done right now.’ It gets to the point where you want to strangle people. I think they all fantasize about, like, ‘Man, I would love to punch somebody.’ And I actually get to do it. I get to beat people up.”

On Not Coming From An Athletic Background: “I think your typical guy in the UFC wrestled in college, was always a good athlete. … I really wasn’t. I’m a decent athlete now because I’ve been training at it for so long, but I really didn’t come from that type of lifestyle of being a badass wrestler since I was 6 years old,” Lauzon said. “My background shows I’m a little more than a meathead.”
