Has J-Lau been on here since the fight?

 Has Joe been on here since the Ken Flo fight? Do any of you know him personally? Just wondering if he's back home and doing well. Come back Joe!

 Nope, no shame losing to a guy like Ken Flo. Hope he comes back soon.

Haven't been online at all. I'm in Tampa with my girlfriend for a little bit and would rather not sit inside on the computer. I am doing good though. I have stitches in two places on the back of my head and a bruised ear. Other than that I am good. I will be back on here in no time.





Congrats to Kenny

 Sweet. Glad you are doing good Joe. You're the man.

 ALL CLASS JOE.

Kenny beat me, fair and square. He is the better fighter and proved it on Wednesday night. I knew I was an underdog coming in, and despite having a few good moments Kenny showed why he was the favorite.

Since this fight was announced I kept talking about Kenny's great ground game it was ultimately my downfall. After a back and forth first round, Kenny got mount in the second and I couldn't get him off me. I didn't take a lot of damage while on the bottom but Kenny wasn't going anywhere either. I got him off once, but used up a lot of energy in trying to get him off again and again.

I loved going to Colorado, but hope to never have to fight in altitude like that again. I went two and a half weeks early to get used to it and thought I was, but a fight is always worse on your body and I felt drained by the end of the first round. Coming out for the second round my legs felt like they weighed a thousand pounds and it was showed.

A lot of people have been talking to me about the elbows. While some of the elbows did land to the back of the head, and I have the stitches to prove it, it didn't affect the outcome of the fight. It certainly didn't help having the doctor try and take care of my cut and making me bend over forward and not being able to breath but thats how it goes sometimes. The blood didn't bother me and it wasn't the first time I had seen my own blood. Herb Dean stood us up, but then he told us to start fighting from standing position. I am still not sure why we were started standing when I had worked for a takedown and better position, but thats not on Kenny that should be on Herb Dean.

Thanks for all of the support to everyone. I have around 2000 emails and messages to go through and about 100 missed calls on my phone. I will get back to everyone but its gonna take some time. For right now, I am gonna lay low and relax in Florida with my girlfriend.

Thanks again,
Joe

 

Glad to see you back Joe, and well done on your performance. You definitely showed you're to be taken seriously in this sport.

 There's already a link. So now there's both Gangsta. I know how lazy people are even when it comes to an extra mouse click, and I wanted everyone to see what a class act Joe is.

great effort joe. you've got a fan in me.

 ttt

Joe you made me a fan! I just went and got your 3 disc dvd set...

Way to be classy in defeat...That is the sign of a true winner

Rest up and have fun with your gf. Thanks for giving us fans a great fight!!

"I loved going to Colorado, but hope to never have to fight in altitude like that again.

You're 23 and will do great in the long run. Sorry, it ended like it did, brother.

great fight. especially the end of the first round. well done!

I have been a fan ever since I saw a hl reel where you nail the flying heel hook.

I was wondering why they were stood up as well. I thought a point had been docked or something but it was just a warning.

Great fight Joe! You showed a lot of heart throughout the fight. TTT for CJ!

Lauzon, not quite a Pimp yet, but far from a punk! Class act all the way. Should've told the doc to stand behind him instead of over and in front/side.

Next time, kick Kenny square in da nutz as payback (in my best Cartman voice).

Joe is a class act.
