MMAWeekly is reporting that Joe Lauzon will be fighting Michael Johnson at the first ever UFC on FOX Sports event, August 17, at the TD Gardens in Boston.
A Boston native, Lauzon is coming off a 'Fight of the Night' performance vs. Jim Miller late in 2012 in which he lost a unanimous decision.
TUF 12 runner up Johnson is 4-4 in the UFC, and is coming off successive losses to Myles Jury and Reza Madadi. He is in all likelihood fighting for his livelihood.
The UFC has not yet announced a main event for the card, but it is believed to have:
Thiago Alves vs. Matt Brown
Conor McGregor vs. TBA
