Both fighters have already verbally agreed to fight one another and for Lauzon, "J-Lau" is up for another exciting affair.
"I'm always down for whatever the UFC wants. It sounds like that's a fight that's super exciting, so I'm all about it. I talked to Joe Silva, he's all about it, Pettis seems to be about it, I'm about it, so I'm sure it's going to happen. I don't know exactly when, I'm trying to get on the Super Bowl card. I think that would be awesome," Lauzon said.
Lauzon and Pettis are among some of the UFC's most exciting lightweight talents.
Lauzon (21-6) is fresh off of a 47 second submission victory over Melvin Guillard at UFC 136 despite being the underdog in that fight. That win also earned him his fifth Submission of the Night which complements three Fight of the Night and one Knockout of the Night award.
Pettis (12-2) also fought at UFC 136, winning a split decision against Jeremy Stephens. Pettis is perhaps best remembered for his "Showtime Kick" in his bout with Ben Henderson at WEC 53. He would go on to win that fight to capture the WEC lightweight title before arriving to the UFC.
Lauzon vs. Pettis still needs official confirmation but their meeting looks promising, barring an injury to either man.
