Matt Hamill hammers pins for Joey – Raises Awareness and Funds for Joe Lauzon’s son
Before last weekend’s UFC Ultimate Fight Night 50, a preview of Joe Lauzon’s upcoming fight with Michael Chiesa told the story of the past 9 months of Lauzon’s life. His son, Joey, was born with Neuroblastoma, otherwise known as a form of cancer.
His life turned upside down, but with the help of modern technology things started to improve. One downfall however was that Joey sustained significant hearing loss and will likely never be able to hear.
Enter Matt Hamill. The former UFC light heavyweight fighter was born deaf and is proof that hearing impairment does not mean the end of the world.
Two days after Lauzon’s win over Chiesa, Hamill and MMA Signatures and MyMMANews.com teamed up with friends and family for two friendly games of bowling. 10 cents per point will be donated to donate.joelauzon.com
Get well soon Joey. Everyone is pulling for you.

We pride ourselves in taking a deeper look into the fighter, and understanding what makes them tick.
