MMAJunkie.com is reporting that newly crowned WEC Lightweight Champ Jamie Varner will make his first title defense against Marcus Hicks.
Varner won the title by defeating Rob McCullough during a February WEC event.
Varner who holds a 14-2 record, is on a 3 fight win streak since losing to Hermes Franca at UFC 62. Hicks on the other hand has yet to taste defeat and holds an 8-0 record.
The fight is likely to take place on August 3rd and MMAjunkie.com is thinking that the event will be formally announced this weekend during WEC 34: Faber Vs. Pulver
