Ex-UFC lightweight Dan Lauzon stabbed outside Boston-area nightclub

Dan Lauzon is recovering today after being stabbed in the shoulder following an altercation early Thursday morning outside a Boston-area nightclub.

An initial report from the "Enterprise News" states Lauzon was stabbed with a knife on the top of his shoulder during a fight with a group of men in the club's parking lot at around 1 a.m. ET.

Lauzon's name subsequently was removed from the report, but his older brother, current UFC lightweight Joe Lauzon, confirmed the incident via his personal blog.

Joe Lauzon was due this morning to depart for Iraq to visit active-duty troops. He injured his ankle on the way to Bridgewater Hospital where Dan was taken after the incident.

"I got to the hospital and gimp-walked my way into the ER and found Dan in one of the rooms," he wrote on his blog. "Luckily, everything was OK, and it wasn’t a big deal as was originally thought."

Bridgewater police are investigating the incident.

Older brother Joe's trip is now delayed while his ankle heals from what doctors are calling a bad sprain.

"Hopefully I can walk on it better by tomorrow and I can get another flight out there, but it’s not looking real good," he stated. "I definitely won't be able to train out there, but I would still like to be able to do all of the Q&A, meet and greets and whatnot."

Neither Joe or Dan Lauzon could be reached for a follow-up comment, and Dan Lauzon's manager, Joe Cavallaro, was unaware of the incident when contacted by ( .

Dan Lauzon (13-4) most recently fought this past December and earned a second consecutive win in regional competition. He was released from the UFC in mid-2010 following consecutive losses to Cole Miller and Efrain Escudero.

I've heard a lot of things about Dan being a dick, so it was probably warranted

Sucks that Joe hurt himself on his way to rescue his fuckup brother
