| | Lauzon vs Varner on tap for UFC on Fox 4
Lauzon vs. Varner is fourth addition to UFC on FOX 4 main card | MMAjunkie.com
The next UFC on FOX card again will feature four fights. |
A lightweight scrap between Joe Lauzon (21-7 MMA, 8-4 UFC) and former WEC champ Jamie Varner (20-6-1- MMA, 2-1 UFC) will kick off UFC on FOX 4's main-card broadcast.
UFC on FOX 4 takes place Aug. 4 at Staples Center in Los Angeles. Former champion Mauricio "Shogun" Rua and Brandon Vera meet in the headliner.
In addition to the FOX-televised main card, which marks the UFC's return to network television, FUEL TV carries the prelims.
Back in May Varner got the call to return to the UFC to face Edson Barboza at UFC 146 on less than a month's notice. Despite being a heavy underdog against the unbeaten Brazilian, who had three straight "Fight of the Night" bonuses and a "Knockout of the Night" award, Varner took it to Barboza in the standup game and stopped him with punches in the first round. It was Varner's first win in the UFC since March 2007. He now replaces injured Terry Etim for his bout with Lauzon.
Lauzon looks to get back in the win column after a knockout loss to Anthony Pettis at UFC 144 in February. Before that, the well-rounded Lauzon was on a 5-2 run with four "Submission of the Night" wins and a pair of "Fight of the Night" bonuses in his two losses, which came at the hands of George Sotiropoulos and Sam Stout.
The UFC on FOX 4 lineup now includes:
MAIN CARD (FOX) •Mauricio "Shogun" Rua vs. Brandon Vera
•Ryan Bader vs. Lyoto Machida
•Travis Browne vs. Ben Rothwell
•Joe Lauzon vs. Jamie Varner
PRELIMINARY CARD (FUEL TV) •Cole Miller vs. Nam Phan
•Phil Davis vs. Wagner Prado
•Rob Broughton vs. Matt Mitrione
•Phil De Fries vs. Oli Thompson
•DaMarques Johnson vs. Mike Swick
•Josh Grispi vs. Rani Yahya
•Manny Gamburyan vs. Michihiro Omigawa

This should be a great fight! I think Lauzon takes it.

Indeed. I'm stoked for Swick-Johnson, Davis-Prado, and the whole main card. All of the other fights are super solid, as well. Or at least that is how I rank these fights in my mind.
