"I don't feel I've taken any real abuse or punishment," Lauzon said. "But the thing is I don't want to. I don't want to have wars if that means I'm going to forget my own name. If it got to that point, I would reassess everything and take a step back."
Lauzon was bruised and bloodied after squaring off with Jim Miller for 15 minutes at UFC 155 on Dec. 29, and he was knocked out by Anthony Pettis with a vicious head kick at UFC 144.
"At first, I didn't want to see anybody," he today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). "Now, I don't even care. A lot of people are just walking by, and they'll glance in my direction and they'll lock on my face. And the other people are doing their best just to try and keep a straight face."
"I'm glad people enjoyed the fight, but I'm not looking to go out there and look like a zombie after every fight," Lauzon said. "I want to have exciting fights, but I don't want to be the guy that's exciting because he gets beat up so much. I want to demonstrate my skills and submit people and beat other people up."
No word yet on who Lauzon's next challenge will be in the UFC octagon.
"I wish it could have been a 'Submission of the Night,'" Lauzon said. "I've got to hope that this next fight isn't super exciting and I get one over."
