A lightweight affair between Joe Lauzon and Jamie Varner will be the fourth fight on the main card for UFC on FOX 4. The event takes place August 4 from Los Angeles’ Staples Center.
Lauzon (21-7) was expected to face Terry Etim, but Etim was knocked out with an injury. In his place will be Varner (20-6-1), who returned to the UFC with a stunning knockout of Edson Barboza earlier this year.
The UFC on FOX 4 main card now boasts Lauzon-Varner, Travis Browne vs. Ben Rothwell, Ryan Bader vs. Lyoto Machida and a five-round main event of Mauricio “Shogun” Rua vs. Brandon Vera. The prelims will be broadcast live on FUEL TV.
