Lauzon vs. Chiesa booked for September 5th


Today the Boston Herald reported that the first match up for a September 5th card at Foxwoods has been made between two lightweights:

Local favorite Joe Lauzon will be featured in a key matchup on the Sept. 5 UFC card at Foxwoods Resort Casino, fighting “Ultimate Fighter” reality show winner Michael Chiesa in a battle of submission wizards, the Herald has learned.

The lightweight tilt will mark the Bridgewater product’s first fight since a convincing unanimous decision win over Mac Danzig in December and the birth of Lauzon’s first child.

Chiesa, based near Seattle, won the tournament on Season 15 of the UFC’s signature “Ultimate Fighter” reality show in 2012, and has gone 3-1 in the Octagon since. He most recently defeated Francisco Trinaldo in a commanding performance on May 24 at UFC 173.
