Joe Lauzon takes on Terry Etim this August at FOX event

Two lightweights coming of separate, scintillating head-kick knockouts will meet this summer in the form of a bout between Joe Lauzon and Terry Etim. Lauzon was last seen falling to Anthony Pettis last month in Japan, while Etim was poster-ized by Edson Barboza courtesy of a Spinning Heel-Kick at UFC 142. However, both submission specialists were coming off wins in their previous performances and have racked up victories over a number of respected adversaries in the past.

Their match-up is believed to be taking place at UFC on FOX 4 in Los Angeles on August 4.

Both Fighters Only Magazine and the Boston Herald have confirmed the bout through separate sources.

Lauzon holds an overall record of 21-7 with eight of his wins coming inside the Octagon. Among the notable opponents he’s beaten are Jens Pulver, Jeremy Stephens, Mike Brown, and Melvin Guillard. All instances of his in-ring success have involved some form of stoppage.

The 26-year old Etim is also a finisher by trade with fourteen of his fifteen overall wins involving a fight-ending technique.

No other bouts have been linked to the card yet.

    These are two great one round guys so I think this is going to be a crazy 5 minutes.

    great matchup. Would like to see Joe come out on top. I’ve been a fan ever since his straight-up disrespectful beatdown of Gabe Rudiger.

    The FOX and FX shows seem to be getting some of the best match ups…. And I’m NOT complaining, if it’s free it’s for me.
