Joe Lauzon engaged in a bloody battle with Jim Miller in his last fight, leaving him with a loss and in need of some scar tissue. Now, the multi-time bonus winner is targeting an August return to the Octagon.
The UFC announced they will debut on FOX Sports 1 in August from Boston and the TD Garden. Lauzon, a native of Massachusetts, is hoping to be included on the card.
“The time works out perfect,” said Lauzon, while appearing on MMAjunkie.com Radio recently. “I think it lines up perfectly. It gives me a little more time to let my head heal up and deal with all that kind of stuff and get in there.”
Lauzon was originally looking at returning in June or July, but said “they’re probably already booking out that far.” He owns five Fight of the Night bonuses and six Submission of the Night awards, along with one Knockout of the Night.
