How's this for a fight? Joe Lauzon usually brings the excitement whenever he competes, and he'll get the chance to do it a couple of hours from his home in September. The longtime fan favorite has been added to the UFC's card in Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut and he'll be facing off with a TUF winner - Michael Chiesa. The Boston Herald has the news.
Lauzon (23-9), a native of Bridgewater, Massachusetts, is coming off a December decision win over Mac Danzig that broke a two-fight losing streak. This will be his 17th fight in the UFC - he's 10-6 in the promotion thus far.
The Herald states that the bout will not be the headliner of the event. In other news, a featherweight bout between Sean Soriano and Andre Fili has also reportedly been added to the card. The show will take place on the same weekend as a Bellator event in the same state.
