Imagine what would happen if a 5th grade student got into a streetfight with a Senior in highschool. If you can mentally see that then you have a good understanding of what transpired in the match up between Joe Lauzon and Gabe Reudiger.
The fights' interesting back story continued at the weigh in, where Reudiger presented Lauzon with a cake that read "Sorry for your loss". Although civil at the weigh ins, Lauzon has made no secret of the fact that he and Gabe don't like each other. Gabe has publicly stated that he thinks Lauzon is a spoiled kid too full of himself.
As soon as the bell rang, the Boston native began a full assault on "Godzilla" that included a couple of monstrous slams, some viciously personal ground and pound, and complete and utter dominance from the top position. After feeding Reudiger plenty of leather, Lauzon secured an armbar, forcing the tap at 2:01 in the first round.
After the stoppage, Joe attempted to shake Gabe's hand, but was rebuffed and ignored by the pouting protagonist of colonics. When interviewed by Joe Rogan after the fight, Lauzon proudly welcomed Reudiger to Boston. This, of course, was met with roaring approval.
It was fortuitous that Reudiger was thoughtful enough to bring Joe a cake; every winner deserves some dessert.
