Sometimes UFC matchmaker Joe Silva just has it easy.
Such is the case with the first match-up to be added to the UFC on Fox 4 event headed for Los Angeles, Calif., on Aug. 4, 2012, as lightweights Joe Lauzon and Terry Etim will look to rebound from recent spectacular losses.
BostonHerald.com brought word of the bout just last night.
Lauzon is coming off a first round destruction at the hands, or legs, rather, of Anthony Pettis back at UFC 144 on Feb. 25 in Japan. "J-Lau" took one hard on the chin and took a short trip to La La Land. When he woke up, he was back down towards the bottom of the 155-pound ladder.
The same can be said for Terry Etim, who was on the receiving end of what has undoubtedly been the "Knockout of the Year" when Edson Barboza posterized him with a spinning wheel kick at UFC 142 on Jan. 14 down in Brazil. The loss marked his second in three fights, this after putting together a four fight win streak.
Rebound time comes later this summer at the UFC on Fox 4 event that is scheduled to go down in LA on Aug. 4. The show is currently without a main event and Lauzon vs. Etim is the only bout booked for the card at this time.
