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.
