UFC on Fox 4: Jamie Varner Steps in for Injured Terry Etim to Face Joe Lauzon
MMAJunkie broke the story about Varner stepping in for an injured Terry Etim to face UFC stalwart Lauzon.
Varner is in the middle of a second UFC run after stepping in on very short notice to face the highly touted Edson Barboza at UFC 146. A huge underdog, Varner came out firing and swarmed the Brazilian fighter en route to a first-round finish. The loss was Barboza's first of his professional career.
Lauzon is also coming off a one-sided fight, although he was the one on the end of the beating. His last fight took place at UFC 144 and saw Lauzon get dropped by a head kick from Anthony Pettis.
Prior to the Pettis defeat, Lauzon had been on a nice roll, going 5-2 with a handful of fight bonuses to his credit.
The UFC on Fox 4 card is set to take place on Aug. 4 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The card is headlined by a light heavyweight bout between two muay thai masters, Mauricio "Shogun" Rua and Brandon Vera.
Also on the card is a pivotal 205 lb. matchup between former champion Lyoto Machida and Ultimate Fighter winner Ryan Bader. The event will feature prominent fighters like Phil Davis, Matt Mitrione, and the return of Mike Swick.
