Everyone loves Joe Lauzon. And how could you not? The dude leaves everything in the cage, bleeds excitement, and epitomes the word “scrappy” with every bout. But the Massachusetts natives – who will be taking on Al Iaquinta at Saturday’s UFC 183 in Las Vegas – is also a father, and his kid has one heck of a story about overcoming cancer.

Go ahead and watch the video below, and then try to tell me it didn’t pull on your heart strings. Because Joe is a nice guy in person and very likeable, but damn, babies in trouble… that’s some sad stuff right there. It sucked when Dan Miller’s kid had issues, and it sucks that Joe’s kid had issues.

Anyway, Lauzon vs. Iaquinta is going to be fun.
