UFC 118: Joe Lauzon vs Terry Etim in the works for Aug. 28 in Boston

There's a fantastic lightweight match-up brewing between 155-pound up-and-comers Joe Lauzon (18-5) and Terry Etim (14-3), currently planned for UFC 118 on August 28 from the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts.

Sources from inside one of the fight camps alerted MMAmania.com to the pending bout earlier today.

Lauzon came up empty against the resurgent Sam Stout at UFC 108: "Evans vs. Silva" back on January 8. It was only the second loss for the former Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 5 contestant since his stunning debut under the Zuffa banner against Jens Pulver way back in September 2006.

"J-Lau" has been training with BJ Penn in Hawaii and will need to be at 100-percent to overcome the hard-hitting Etim.

The Brit had quietly assembled a four-fight winning streak starting with a unanimous decision victory over Sam Stout at UFC 89: "Bisping vs. Leben;" however, Rafael dos Anjos put an end to his winning ways with a textbook armbar submission at last month's UFC 112: "Invincible" pay-per-view in Abu Dhabi.

He'll need to concentrate on submission defense for a second straight bout if he hopes to deny Lauzon the win.

UFC 118 is expected to feature a lightweight bout between current 155-pound contenders Kenny "KenFlo" Florian and Gray "The Bully" Maynard as they try to stake their claim to the winner of a possible championship rematch between Frankie "The Answer" Edgar and BJ "The Prodigy" Penn, also expected on the Aug. 28 card.

Stay tuned to MMAmania.com for more updates to the UFC's debut in Boston as they become available.

I posted a thread about this but no one seemed to care, which I found odd consideration how exciting both these guys are and how well matched they are.

nice fight. I think Lauzon via sub.
Etim was very competitive on the ground with dos Anjos, who has very good BJJ. Not sure Lauzaon will be able to get a sub like Anjos did, I'd say Etim is going to beat him standing.

Etim wins via TKO. Lauzon doesn't stand a chance standing.
