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.)

He also dabbles in acting, with his most recent role being that of famed badminton ace Jimmy "The Jet" Johnson.
 
The BJJ black belt first gained fame as a dark-horse finalist in the first-ever season of The Ultimate Fighter on Spike. After a December win against Clay Guida, Florian is set to headline UFC Fight Night on March 31.
