Varner in for Green verus Trujillo at UFC 169


Bobby Green and Abel Trujillo both picked up impressive wins in December at the UFC on FOX 9, and were set to face each other at UFC 169. However, plans changed:

Trujillo will now face Jamie Varner in a lightweight contest after Bobby Green was forced to drop out of the scheduled fight for undisclosed reasons, according to UFC officials on Tuesday afternoon.

Varner has won three of his past five fights, but lost to Gleison Tibau via split decision at UFC 164 this past August.

i really like varner, i like the way he fights (for the most part), he's got underrated skill set and imo can beat just about anyone on any given day.but everytime he opened his mouth, especially in WEC, he sounded like a butthurt, entitled bitch tit.with that said, i'm hoping ufc keeps him around for a long time. He always comes to fight and that's the important thing.

he was 23 and he just got his first UFC win over some douche who talked a gang of shit about him. why's everyone gotta act like you have to always be mature. careers are short, have some fun with it. shit.and there was no story about Fickett and Varner as far as I know. Jamie just said Drew offered to fight him and talked some shit, that was it.
