Watch the complete fight between Anthony Pettis and Joe Lauzon from UFC 144, which took place February 26, 2012 at the Saitama Super Arena in Japan.

Pettis (18-2), also a former WEC lightweight champion, is currently scheduled to defend his 155-pound title against Rafael dos Anjos at UFC 185 later this month.

The man known as ‘Showtime’ was last seen defending his 155-pound title with a second round submission over former Stikeforce, WEC and Dream champion Gilbert Melendez in the co-main event of UFC 181 in December, earning a Performance of the Night bonus in the process. This not only marked his first title defense but also extended his win streak to five, which includes four straight stoppages. Prior to this victory, fans saw him crowned the lightweight champion after pulling off a slick first round armbar victory over longtime rival and then champion Benson Henderson in the main event of UFC 164 in August 2013. He will enter this bout with a 15 stoppage wins, including eight by way of knockout, and a UFC record of 5-1
