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.

Anthony Pettis and Josh Thomson headlines the highly stacked UFC on Fox 9 this coming December 14

UFC fox 9 is already taking shape 2 months prior to its schedule. The event will be headlined with the UFC lightweight title fight between current champion Anthony Pettis and Josh Thomson.

It will be Pettis’ first defense of the title that he took from Benson Henderson by submitting him in the first round. Thomson on the other hand has won his last fight via 1st round TKO over Nate Diaz, whom has not been stopped prior to his bout with Thomson.

The main card will also feature former UFC interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit against Matt Brown as well as a fight between high ranking bantamweights in Urijah Faber and Michael McDonald.

The most recent addition to the highly stacked card is a flyweight scrap between one time flyweight contender John Moraga and Darren Uyenoyama. Both fighters have lost their most recent outings. Moraga suffered a fifth round submission loss in his bid to take the title away from Demetrious Johnson. Meanwhile, Uyenoyama was stopped in the 2nd round by Joseph Buenavidez at UFC on Fox 7 last April.
