Jamie Varner To Face Joe Lauzon At UFC On FOX 4

Jamie Varner will take the place of Terry Etim and meet Joe Lauzon in a prelim bout at UFC on FOX 4, UFC officials confirmed Wednesday night.

Etim was injured and forced out of the event. In his place steps Varner, who knocked out the previously-undefeated Edson Barboza in his return to the Octagon.

Varner is a former WEC champion, but was cut from Zuffa before making his return to take on Barboza on short notice.

Lauzon is looking to recover from a loss to Anthony Pettis earlier this year.
