With Bobby Green out (22-5 MMA, 3-0 UFC), Abel Trujillo (11-5 MMA, 2-1 UFC) has a new opponent for February’s UFC 169 event: fellow lightweight Jamie Varner (21-8-1 MMA, 3-3 UFC).

Not if he's lying flat on his back after getting taken down

Gay!

Was expecting a stand up war with Green fighting. Real shame now we got a wrestler vs Abel instead!

This could be a fun fight in my eyes
Varner is a gamer and I think if he can survive some of the onslaught he could take over late. Abel looked so beastly in his last fight though, he seemed to have improved a lot. Still not sure who i'll take.

Varner is the crafty veteran at this stage of his career but I'm with most of you saying that Trujillo will probably brutalize Varner. I think a good gameplan would be for Varner to take it to him full force from the opening bell and try to surprise.

Very interesting fight

I am surprised with how many of my fellow PGers are completely counting out Varner.

This is a winnable fight for both guys I am curious to see who walks away the winner in this match up.

Sucks that Green is out but Varner is a great replacement.
