J-Lau Battles Chiesa at Foxwoods

Two of the UFC's top submission specialists will meet up at Foxwoods in Conencticut on September 5th, as New England's own Joe Lauzon faces TUF 15 winner Michael Chiesa at UFC Fight Night.

Tied with Anderson Silva for the most post-fight bonus awards in UFC history, Massachusetts' Lauzon will return to the Octagon for the first time since his December 2013 win over Mac Danzig. Washington's Chiesa is 3-1 since winning the TUF 15 crown in 2012, with his most recent win a hard-fought decision victory over Francisco Trinaldo in May.
