Dan Lauzon Added To WCF 5

Boston, Mass. – On Nov 14, 2008 UFC Veteran Dan “The Upgrade” Lauzon makes his much anticipated return to World Championship Fighting when he takes on Justin “Sledge” Hammerstrom at the Shriners Auditorium in Wilmington, MA. Lauzon has been on an absolute tear in the last eighteen months, having won six fights in a row, three of them in the WCF. His recent winning streak was enough to earn him a fight with fellow prospect Chris Horodecki on a pay-per-view event in January of 2009. When asked why he’d take a fight in the WCF when he has a Pay-Per-View fight lined up for early 2009, Lauzon responded “I really wanted to stay sharp and keep my momentum. I’ve fought for them [WCF] three times now and they take great care of me, and I love fighting for them in front of their fans and my friends and family. These (Boston) fans really are the best sports fans in the world.” He then acknowledged his opponent by saying, “Justin is a really tough veteran, and a former champion. It would be a huge mistake for me to look past him. He’ll see the best Dan Lauzon on November 14.”

Hammerstrom has been fighting professionally since late 2005, is a veteran of fourteen fights and has held and fought for several local welter-weight titles. He is coming off a first round submission victory at WCF 4, and is excited to fight the younger Lauzon who still holds the distinction of being the youngest fighter to ever compete in the Ultimate Fighting Championships (UFC). WCF Promoter Joe Cavallaro is expecting fireworks and when asked about the fight he replied, “I’m really excited to get this fight booked, especially when you add it to the rest of the card. The card is stacked from top to bottom, and to be able to add a fight like this between two exciting fighters is huge.” Between Lauzon and Hammerstrom, they have 26 fights with only one fight going the distance.

The action happens live November 14th at the Aleppo Shriners Auditorium in Wilmington, Massachusetts.
