Joe Lauzon has confirmed a rumored fight with Terry Etim, announcing that he has signed on for the bout via his own personal website, JoeLauzon.com.
Lauzon-Etim will take place on August 4 at UFC on FOX 4. The card is set for Los Angeles, with a main event of Hector Lombard vs. Brian Stann.
Lauzon was scheduled to face Etim back at UFC 118, but Etim was forced out with a broken rib. Lauzon wrote, “The stars have aligned though and it looks like the fight will happen after all.”
In his most recent bout, Lauzon was defeated by Anthony Pettis via knockout. He had won his previous two fights prior to the defeat.
Etim has gone 2-2 in his last four fights, including a loss to Edson Barboza by spinning wheel kick earlier this year.
