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.
