Florian and Lauzon to guest tweet this weekend

Joe Lauzon and Kenny Florian will live tweet from the @ufc account during WEC: Bowles vs. Cruz this Saturday, offering their expert analysis during the Versus broadcast. Both men are UFC lightweights, which gives them unique insights into the world of WEC, a Zuffa-owned promotion dedicated exclusively to lighter weight classes. (They're also both from Massachusetts, so they should be pretty funny to boot.)
