UFC on Fox 9 gets deeper with the addition of Jamie Varner and Pat Healy

The highly stacked UFC on Fox 9 gets even more loaded with the addition of the lightweight showdown between Jamie Varner and Pat Healy. The two lightweights are known to put up highly entertaining fights and both are recipients of Fight of the Night honors.

However, both of them have also lost their previous matches. Varner is 1 – 2 after defeating Edson Barboza in a fight that is considered as the Upset of the Year of 2012. He dropped a split decision loss to Gleison Tibau in his last fight. Pat Healy also lost his recent outing. He was outclassed by the Russian prospect Khabib Nurmagomedov last September in UFC 165. Prior to that fight, Healy submitted Jim Miller but the win was overturned when Healy tested positive in marijuana in his post-fight test.  He is 0-2 with 1 No Contest in his UFC career.

The event which will take place on December 14 at Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento, California is headlined with a lightweight title bout between Anthony Pettis and Josh Thomson. It also features several top names in the UFC including former interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit and former title contenders in Urijah Faber, Michael McDonald and Chad Mendes.

Jim Miller looks to get back on track versus BJJ black belt Fabricio Camoes in UFC 168

The latest addition to the loaded year-end event of the UFC is a lightweight bout between Jim Miller and Fabricio Camoes. The event takes place at MGM Grand Garden Arena on December 28 and will feature the most anticipated rematch of Anderson Silva and Chris Weidman.

Both lightweight veterans are looking to return in the winning column. Jim Miller was once included in the mix of the best lightweights in the UFC. He is riding in a 7 fight winning streak before losing to Benson Henderson in August of 2011. He is 2 – 2 with 1 NC after that loss. Miller was submitted by Pat Healy in his latest fight but the decision was later overturned into a No Contest after Healy tested positive in marijuana. That fight earned Miller his 3rd Fight of the Night Award; it is his 2nd consecutive after his unanimous decision win over Joe Lauzon. He has also won the Submission of the Night three times.

After winning promotional debut at UFC 129, Ben Henderson – former WEC lightweight champion – is moving fast to get his second fight against Jim Miller at UFC Versus 5.
