When the UFC returns to FOX in a few weeks, it will do so with a card featuring a quartet of intriguing offerings now including an already announced lightweight tilt between fan-favorite Joe Lauzon and former WEC champion Jamie Varner. The organization recently revealed the bout would be scheduled alongside other notable fights such as Lyoto Machida-Ryan Bader and headliner Mauricio Rua-Brandon Vera.
Lauzon is coming off a knockout loss to Anthony Pettis in February and will be hungry for a victory after having previously racked up a pair of consecutive wins. He holds an overall record of 21-7 with all of his triumphs involving some form of stoppage like those against Jeremy Stephens, Jens Pulver, and Melvin Guillard.
Comparably, Varner is a hot commodity at the moment after picking off ESPY nominee Edson Barboza in the opening round of their May match-up. He too has a penchant for finishing foes with eleven submissions and seven TKOs in twenty total wins.
UFC on FOX 4 is set for August 4 with prelims playing on Fuel TV.
