Joseph Edward Lauzon Jr. was born on May 22, 1984, in Brockton, Massachusetts. Lauzon lived on a small farm and enjoyed riding horses. Lauzon did not begin training in the martial arts until his junior year at East Bridgewater High School, after seeing a demonstration that piqued his interest. Lauzon graduated from Wentworth Institute of Technology in 2007 with a Bachelor's degree in computer science. He worked as a network administrator in Cambridge, Massachusetts before he began training in mixed martial arts full-time.
