At UFC 78 Lauzon defeated previously undefeated Jason Reinhardt by rear naked choke in the first round. Lauzon got Reinhardt in a clinch and took him down before moving to the north-south position.

On April 2, 2008 Kenny Florian defeated Lauzon at UFC Fight Night 13 by TKO from Strikes from Mount. In the fight, Lauzon took down Florian to the mat but while there Florian landed several illegal elbows to the back of the head that cut Lauzon. The 1st round was back and forth as Florian landed a brutal body kick and took Lauzon's back and Lauzon landed several take downs and looked for knee bars and heel hooks. Florian finished the round with some hard shots to Lauzon's head.
Florian opened the 2nd round with a takedown and punches on Lauzon from the mount position. Lauzon attempted another heel hook but Florian continued to strike Lauzon from both the mount and side control at which point the fight was stopped.
