UFC on FS1 1: Lauzon vs. Johnson Set for Boston

Michael Johnson

The UFC’s first bout for UFC on FOX Sports 1 1 is set as Boston’s Joe Lauzon will meet Michael Johnson. The pairing will likely end up on the evening’s main card. Multiple sources are currently reporting the bout.

Lauzon is coming off his UFC 155 “Fight of the Night” performance in a loss to Jim Miller. Lauzon has been awarded an unreal eleven bonuses in his fourteen UFC fights. The Ultimate Fighter 5 alum has dropped two of his last three, but his aforementioned penchant for bonuses should keep him off the unemployment line.

The same cannot be said for his opponent, Michael Johnson, who has dropped his last two fights after a three-fight win-streak. The Ultimate Fighter 12 runner-up has gone 4-4 in the UFC, dropping a bout to Reza Madadi at UFC on FUEL TV 9 in Sweden.

UFC on FOX Sports 1 1 takes place August 17 at the TD Garden in Boston. The UFC’s return trip to Boston does not have a main event at this time, though UFC president Dana White, a Boston native, has promised a big main event for the August show.
