The UFC's return to Boston continues to come together with the addition of a lightweight bout featuring one of the area's own.

Joe Lauzon (22-8 MMA, 9-5 UFC), a native of Boston's south suburbs, will head just up the road to fight Michael Johnson (12-8 MMA, 4-4 UFC) at UFC on FOX Sports 1 1 in August. Lauzon wanted a fight on his hometown show, and he'll get it.

Sources with knowledge of the bout recently told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) of the planned fight, which MMA Weekly also reported Monday.

I figured Joe would get a little tougher of an opponent than Johnson. I was hoping for Cerrone. Joe will more than likely handle Michael with no problem.

Lauzon shouldn't have any issue with Johnson.

Yeah. Lauzon should be able to handle him. Giving him an easy win in Boston makes sense though. The crowd will go nuts when he gets the finish.

Ouch, Johnson hasn't fared well against submission guys and now that he's not training with Guillard anymore, I can't imagine it's gotten better.

Lauzon will have his way with Johnson. I see Johnson getting his walking papers after this fight.
