Joe Lauzon will face a stiff challenge when he looks to get back on track later this year.
Lauzon, who is coming off a crushing defeat at the hands of Anthony Pettis, will take on Terry Etim at UFC on FOX 4 in Los Angeles. The card is set for August 4.
After defeating Melvin Guillard via submission, “J-Lau” was looking to make a statement in the UFC’s lightweight division. Instead, Pettis dropped him in the first round and sent Lauzon back to the drawing board.
In Etim, Lauzon will be facing a fighter in the same situation as himself. Etim was knocked out by Edson Barboza with a spinning wheel kick, dropping him to 1-2 in his last three after a four-fight win streak.
The Boston Herald was the first to report the fight as being official for the card.
