Joe Lauzon has eyed to face Michael Johnson at the UFC on FOX Sports 1 1 event in Boston this coming August.
Lauzon who hails from Boston has been granted his wish to fight in front of his hometown. He is coming off with a unanimous decision loss to Jim Miller at UFC 155 which despite his loss earned him the “Fight of the Night” Award, his second after he won over Jamie Varner last UFC on FOX 4 by a submission victory.
Johnson on the other hand is in a must win situation. His last bout ended in a third round submission loss to Rezza Madadi. Before that he also lost to Myles Jury at UFC 155, snapping his three fight run.
