The Ultimate Fighting Championship’s debut on Fox Sports 1 has its second bout, as lightweights Joe Lauzon and Michael Johnson have reportedly agreed to square off on Aug. 17. first reported the pairing on Monday.

UFC on Fox Sports 1 takes place at TD Garden in Boston and is also expected to include a welterweight showdown between Matt Brown and Thiago Alves. The UFC has not officially announced any bouts for the card.

Prior to that, the Bridgewater, Mass., native suffered a first-round knockout loss to Anthony Pettis at UFC 144 before submitting Jamie Varner in the third round at UFC on Fox 4.
