Breaking News: Nick Agallar to Fight Dan Lauzon in the Art of War

Fresh off his victory last Saturday at Freestyle Combat Challenge 33 in Kenosha, I ran into BodogFight veteran Nick Agallar. Nick Agallar fought Luke Nichols in the main event and breezed through his opponent in less than one minute. Agallar told me that his next fight will be in the April 19th Art of War show against Dan Lauzon.

Last week Sherdog inaccurately wrote an article stating that Nick Agallar had signed with the WEC and was slated to fight Alexandre Franca Nogueira. The article also stated that the bout would be fought at the 145lb featherweight class. Agallar said that he was in talks with a few organizations and he had not signed a long-term deal with any of them as of yet. In addition, he stated that he is happy fighting in the 155lb lightweight class.

Dan Lauzon sports a (9-2) MMA record according to Sherdog and has also fought in the UFC. He is also the younger brother of UFC lightweight contender Joe Lauzon. Lauzon as you may remember fought Spencer Fisher at UFC 64 in October of 2006. He gave Fischer a good fight but lost via TKO late in the first round. He dropped his next bout but has since rattled off five-straight wins. His most recent is a first round triangle choke victory over Frank Latina in the WCF or World Championship Fighting on February 8.

To read more about Nick Agallar please read my other articles. I have also linked the Sherdog article I reference above.
