A rematch between two stalwarts of the UFC’s lightweight division, Joe Lauzon and Jim Miller, has been announced for UFC On FOX 21 on August 27th in Vancouver, Canada.
The two first met at UFC 155 in December of 2012, with Miller coming out on top on that occasion by unanimous decision in a ‘Fight Of The Night’ performance, and now they are set to do it all over again.
In the years since then Lauzon has experienced mixed form, going 4-3. The 32 year-old is coming off one of the biggest wins of his career at UFC 200 earlier this month though, TKO’ing Diego Sanchez in just 86 seconds.
Also 32 years-old, Miller has experienced similar inconsistency in his career over the same time frame, going 4-4 (+1nc). Mirroring J-Lau, he too is on a high after getting back to winning ways by defeating Takanori Gomi by first round TKO at UFC 200.
It’s not clear where the Lauzon Vs Miller rematch will feature on the UFC On FOX 21 fight card, with former lightweight champion Anthony Pettis’ first fight at featherweight against Charles Oliveira also recently made official for the show, while Paige VanZant will return to action after her successful stint on ‘Dancing With The Stars’ against Bec Rawlings.
