  1. Default Bobby Green out, Jamie Varner vs. Abel Trujillo now set for UFC 169

    Earlier this month it was Bobby Green who fought in place of an injured Jamie Varner at UFC on Fox 9 in Sacramento. The former Strikeforce lightweight defeated Pat Healy by decision and was immediately booked for a February showdown with Abel Trujillo. The roles have been reversed, as Green is out and Varner is in against Abel at UFC 169:

    #UFC169 change - lightweight @BobbyKGreen out, @AbelTrujillo1 steps in to face former WEC king @jamievarner
    Varner (21-8-1, 2 NCs) lost a split decision to Gleison Tibau at UFC 164. His biggest win in the UFC is a stunning 1st round TKO of the highly touted Edson Barboza at UFC 146. What made the result more extraordinary was Varner's mediocre string of results from 2010-2012, including 0 wins at lightweight (all of his post-WEC wins were at welterweight and catchweight).

    Trujillo (11-5, 1 NC) easily took apart Roger Bowling at UFC on Fox 9 in a rematch of their August no contest. His UFC debut saw him brutalize Marcus LeVesseur with knees to the body before a very lopsided decision loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 160 this past May.

    UFC 169 takes place on February 1st at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, with Dominick Cruz and Renan Barao unifying their bantamweight belts in the main event. Jose Aldo also defends his featherweight crown against Ricardo Lamas.
    Varner absolutely MERCS this kid.

    I'm not so sure Varner wins, let alone "kills" him. Abel Trujillo is the real deal and his knees and KO power are BRUTAL!

    Varner will have to decision him to get the win, use his wrestling and stay on top. Trujillo needs to keep his distance and use those knees whenever they tie up or get close.. Varner doesn't like body shots.
    Fedor Emelianenko is the Greatest P4P MMA fighter to ever walk the earth, hands down.
