UFC Joe Lauzon

As expected, Joe Lauzon (pictured) will be performing in front of his hometown when the Octagon returns to Boston. The lightweight confirmed Monday evening he’ll meet Michael Johnson at UFC on FS1 1 on August 17.

Lauzon is looking to bounce back from December’s thrilling unanimous decision defeat to Jim Miller. J-Lau has won three of his past five scraps.

Johnson, meanwhile, may be fighting for his UFC life. “The Ultimate Fighter 12” finalist will be riding a two-bout skid into Beantown.

The 155-pound affair will likely appear in the night’s prelims.

TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts serves as host.

FOX Sports 1 broadcasts the main card live beginning at 8PM ET/5PM PT.

Here is the event’s current roster:

Joe Lauzon vs. Michael Johnson

Matt Brown vs. Thiago Alves
