Lausa is a good MMA striker - he's 7-0 as a pro boxer and has decent kicks as well. In his last fight, he fought 25 minutes for a title and won a tough decision, but he looked very good even in the late rounds. He's got decent TDD, stand-ups and sub defense. Yao will want this fight on the ground. I'm not sure why Yao is in the UFC, but his only real win was against Daoyuan Wang, who looked like he was picked out of the crowd. He also "won" a split decision to Nolan Ticman in a fight that most thought he lost (http://mmadecisions.com/decision/6168/Yao-Zhikui-vs-Nolan-Ticman). I see this as a striking win for Lausa as he defends takedowns. He just needs patience, grasshopper.
anyone able to confirm anything for this card in regards to fight order, fight broadcasts, fight time?
from what i can tell, it will effectively be "normal" stuff for americans.. prime time on saturday night, fox sports1 + fight pass early prelims..
