Did you know the UFC is headed to Ledyard, Connecticut? Well, they are. On Tuesday, the promotion announced a lightweight battle between Joe Lauzon (pictured) and Michael Chiesa for the September 5 event.
Foxwoods Resort Casino serves as host.
Lauzon snapped his two-fight skid with December’s unanimous decision win over Mac Danzig. “J-Lau” has lost three of his past fight scraps.
Chiesa, meanwhile, has rattled off two straight victories. “The Ultimate Fighter 15” winner owns a 11-1 professional record.
No other bouts have been reported for the lineup.
No word if the show will be made available for live viewing via UFC Fight Pass, Fox Sports 1, Fox Sports 2 or some combination of the three.
