Joe Lauzon classy, hungry in defeat

After losing a decision to Sam Stout -- one that also won him a Fight of the Night Bonus -- Joe Lauzon did two things: congratulated his opponent and ate doughnuts In-N-Out Burgers.

Great job Sam. You whooped my ass tonight. I thought I had the Kimura in the first round and thought it was over… but you had other plans. Your standup was crisp and your cardio was way better than mine. I could hear your corner calling out stuff and still couldn’t deal with it.

After Shinya Aoki's display at Dynamite, it's refreshing to see a fighter so deferential in defeat. The more refreshing thing to realize is that's the norm in mixed martial arts. Many more fighters hug and congratulate their opponents than show up their opponents.
