The hometown kid gets a dream come true.

The Boston show set for August 28 is starting to fill up with local stars and the latest is former "Ultimate Fighter" competitor Joe Lauzon who returns to action to face Terry Etim on the card.

The bout was confirmed to MMAWeekly.com by sources close to the fight on Tuesday. Fighter's Only first confirmed the bout on Tuesday.

After sitting out for the majority of 2009 with a knee injury, Massachusetts' fighter Joe Lauzon (18-5) came back at UFC 108 with aspirations of getting into the deep end of the lightweight division right away. Lauzon came up a little short in his comeback bid, losing a unanimous decision to Canadian fighter Sam Stout.

I can't wait for this fight! Eitm is a serious prospect and I think he'll walk through Lauzon with ease!

Another great matchup by J.Silva. Joe Lauzon can prolly win if he's at his best. Etim is very talented but i dont see him stopping Joes takedown. Etim may be able to prevent from being finished, i would pick Joe by UD.

He was also supposed to walk through dos Anjos. Whoops.
