Five years after his last appearance in the UFC, Jamie Varner is getting the call back as he will now face Edson Barboza at UFC 146 on May 26 in Las Vegas replacing an injured Evan Dunham.

Sources close to the match-up confirmed the new fight with MMAWeekly.com on Tuesday. UFC officials confirmed the fight as well on Tuesday evening.

Again, another fight cancelled that I wanted to see happen. Barboza just got a much easier fight.

This is like the UFC equivalent of getting jumped in to a street gang.

I will laugh my ass off if Varner wins I always felt Varner had some good skills, but perhaps his camp/work ethic/both wasn't up to snuff.

Same here. It sucks, and I don't like Varner's chances. What's the over under on times he spits his mouthguard out?

Wow, didn't think the UFC was even interested in Varner anymore. I still like this fight but Barboza shoouldn't have too much of a problem

It is good to see Varner back in the big leagues....but I think he is going to get whooped hardcore. I don't think Varner will be around long.

Yeah, Varner is likely to get busted up. That said, he is buying some good will with the UFC by taking this fight on short notice. His blood and busted up face should buy him at least one more fight after this one.

I'm probably one of the few guys that actually likes Varner. That said, he's someone that's in dire need of some therepy because he's let nerves ruin his career since the first Cerrone fight. He fights scared, despite the fact he's one of the most well-rounded LWs out there, and he'll never get back on top of the game like that.
