UFC veteran campaigner Joe Lauzon will face off against Scotland’s Stevie Ray at UFC Fight 108 in Nashville on April 22nd.
Lauzon is coming off a split decision win over former Bellator standout Marcin Held at UFC Fight Night 103 back in January.
That maintains the 32-year-old’s ‘win one – lose one’ streak over the past couple of years, during which time he’s also picked up wins over Michael Chiesa, Takanori Gomi and Diego Sanchez, while losing to the likes of Al Iaquinta, Evan Dunham and Jim Miller.
Next up he’ll be taking on the 26-year-old Ray, who’s compiled a 4-1 record in the Octagon, including notching up his biggest win to date by split decision against Ross Pearson at UFC Fight Night 99 in Belfast last November.
With an overall 20-6 record, the former Cage Warriors champion will be hoping another win over a ‘name’ fighter could help him push towards a spot on the UFC lightweight rankings.
Lauzon Vs Ray joins a UFC Fight Night 108 card that’s curiously headlined by Cub Swanson Vs Artem Lobov, but also includes the likes of Al Iaquinta Vs Diego Sanchez, John Dodson Vs Eddie Wineland, Ovince St-Preux Vs Marcos Rogerio del Lima and Thales Leites Vs Sam Alvey.
