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.
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.
