Joe Lauzon locking horns with Terry Etim in August

Fan-favorite finisher Joe Lauzon will look to bounce back from a momentum-crushing knockout to Anthony Pettis when he returns to the Octagon on August 4 against polished Brit Terry Etim. The bout will take place at UFC on FOX 4 which is expected to go down in Los Angeles.

Etim-Lauzon is the first bout confirmed by multiple sources to be taking place at the event.

News of the pairing was reported by both the Boston Herald and Fighters Only Magazine.

Lauzon had scored two opening round submissions entering the February fight with Pettis including a sub-minute finish of Melvin Guillard in his previous match-up. He holds an overall record of 21-7 with all of his wins involving some form of stoppage (16 submissions/5 TKOs).

Etim is also no stranger to stoppages, taking out fourteen of the fifteen foes he’s felled before scorecards came into play with the lone exception being the always-tough Sam Stout. The 26-year old will also be out to shake off the stink of a highlight-reel loss after being flattened by Edson Barboza’s Spinning Heel-Kick at UFC 142.
