Hello everyone, I’m Joe Lauzon, the founder and head coach at Lauzon Mixed Martial Arts in Raynham, MA. As a seasoned UFC fighter, I have a passion for martial arts that I’m excited to share with our community.
My journey in martial arts began years ago and has been filled with memorable moments, both inside and outside the UFC octagon. Some of the highlights of my career include memorable fights against top fighters like Jens Pulver, whom I knocked out in just 48 seconds at UFC 63, and Melvin Guillard, whom I defeated with a rear-naked choke at UFC 136, earning the Submission of the Night honor. My bout against Jamie Varner at UFC on Fox 4 was particularly noteworthy, as it was not only a thrilling back-and-forth battle but also earned me Fight of the Night and Submission of the Night honors, as well as a nomination for Fight of the Year at the World MMA Awards.
While I’m known for my achievements in the ring, I’m also deeply involved in the local MMA scene here in Massachusetts. My dedication to martial arts goes beyond just competing; it’s about fostering a community and sharing my knowledge and skills. At Lauzon MMA, we focus on Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, a martial art that I have demonstrated proficiency in throughout my career.
Balancing my career as a fighter and a coach, I’m also a family man, a proud father of two. My journey hasn’t just been about fighting; it has been about overcoming challenges, including personal ones, like my son Joey’s brave battle against neuroblastoma.
I hold a degree in computer science, but my true calling has always been martial arts. It’s this unique blend of experiences and skills that I bring to Lauzon MMA. My goal is to create an environment where everyone, regardless of age or skill level, can learn, grow, and enjoy the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and mixed martial arts.
At Lauzon MMA, we’re more than just a martial arts school; we’re a community. We’re dedicated to helping our members build confidence, discipline, and a sense of camaraderie, all while learning effective martial arts techniques. Whether you’re a seasoned fighter or just beginning your martial arts journey, we welcome you to join us and experience the Lauzon MMA difference.
I’m committed to sharing the values of martial arts and helping others “Live Their Best Life” through the discipline and training that martial arts provide. Let’s embark on this journey together!
