Joe Lauzon vs. Curt Warburton at UFC on Versus 4 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

UK lightweight, Curt Warburton has revealed that he’ll be taking on dangerous submission artist, Joe Lauzon at UFC on Versus 4 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on June 26th, 2011.

Warburton, speaking via ESPN.co.uk, said:

“I just got off the phone to my manager, and I accepted the fight immediately. I’m happy to stand and have a war with him, I have a lot of respect for him, it’s a big step up for me, but I’m definitely ready for it. After I smash him up, maybe people will start paying attention to me.”

Lauzon destroyed bitter rival, Gabe Ruediger only to have the wind taken from his sails after losing to Australian submission machine, George Sotiropoulos last time out.

Warburton lost a hard fought decision to veteran Spencer Fisher in his promotional debut before defeating Polish star, Maciej Jewtuszko via unanimous decision in February.
