Lauzon returns in Boston

Making the trip to Boston. I've already got plane tickets and event tickets. Anyone have a recommendation on a decent hotel that won't break the bank?

It's so funny when MMA fans hear about a fading fighter returning to the octagon with YAY!! This is not like a baseball player coming to get a few last hits on the record, or Michael Jordan returning for one last go round. This is an older slower fighter coming back to quite possibly get his face kicked in, his liver replanted or his arm broken.

What the hell is there to YAY about??


The fact that one of the Ufc's mist exciting fighters ever is comming back to fight in front of his home crowd... "Yay" is very appropriate in this context, as Joe isn't comming back to fight Tony or Khabib. Let the man whoop some ass in his back yard... kind of ironic considering him and his brother Dan literally started fighting in their back yard...

Joe's also not some 49 yr old Chuck Lidell coming back to fight, He's 35.

Fans pleading for fighters to retire is dumb. That is some weird ass virtue signaling. Would be awesome to see you morons going on football forums giving advice about which football players should retire before the next season.

 


Dumb comparison since football is a team sport and you must compete yearly against the new up and comers. If you don't cut it...you don't cut it.

Boxing/MMA are individual sports that fighters usually fight past their prime.


Nah you are a dumb fan

At some point, every fighter will face the fact that fighting is a young man's game. Some will reach that point organically, some will get there violently.

The UFC is not the organization for a comeback or farewell tour.

I would stay in seaport/fort point area.   Checking online it looks like prices are already getting jacked up but this would be my choice for under 300
