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.
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.
