After Terry Etim was forced off UFC on Fox 4, the UFC did not waste much time as former WEC lightweight champion Jamie Varner will fill in for the injured fighter. The UFC announced the move via twitter.
Varner recently derailed prospect Edson Barboza after replacing Evan Dunham at UFC 146. The former WEC champion will be looking to continue getting back into his employer’s good graces by jumping in on short notice to face Lauzon.
UFC on Fox 4 takes place August 4 live from Los Angeles, California. The card will be headlined by a light heavyweight tilt between Brandon Vera and Mauricio “Shogun” Rua.
