July’s stacked “UFC on FOX 16” card just got another amazing lightweight fight!
UFC officials recently announced that Joe Lauzon will be stepping into the octagon to face PRIDE legend Takanori Gomi!
Lauzon is looking to bounce back from his loss to Al Iaquinta with an impressive performance against the Japanese legend. Prior to the loss, Lauzon had dished out a couple of impressive wins over Michael Chiesa and Mac Danzig.
Meanwhile, former PRIDE lightweight champion, Takanori Gomi, will be looking to steal a win from Lauzon this July in Chi-town. “The Fireball Kid” still packs one hell of a punch, but it hasn’t shown in his last couple octagon outtings as he is 2-2 in his last 4 fights.
UFC on FOX 16 takes place 25 live from the United Center in Chicago. The event is headlined by a bantamweight title fight rematch featuring current champ T.J. Dillashaw taking on former title holder Renan Barao.
Who do you have winning this lightweight battle?
