A lightweight duel pitting Joe Lauzon against Steven Ray is set for UFC Fight Night 108 in Nashville.
Promotion officials recently announced the contest. UFC Fight Night 108 takes place at Bridgestone Arena and is headlined by a featherweight bout between Cub Swanson and Artem Lobov. The evening’s main card will be televised on Fox Sports 1.
The 33-year-old Lauzon was victorious in two of his three Octagon appearances in 2016, scoring a first-round stoppage of Diego Sanchez at UFC 200 and taking a split decision over Marcin Held at UFC Fight Night 103. In between, the Massachusetts native dropped a split verdict to Jim Miller at UFC on Fox 21.
Ray is 4-1 during his promotional tenure thus far. Most recently, “Braveheart” earned a split-decision victory against Ross Pearson at UFC Fight Night 99 on Nov. 19. The Cage Warriors Fighting Championship veteran is 20-6 as a professional overall.
