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.
