UFC On FOX 13 Lands Lightweight Fight

The first bout is set for UFC on FOX 13, as Jamie Varner will compete in his home state against Drew Dober.

Set for December 13, the card marks the UFC’s first visit to Phoenix. The main card airs on FOX, with prelims expected for FOX Sports 1 and UFC Fight Pass.

Varner (21-10-1) has lost three straight since a split decision victory over Melvin Guillard. The former WEC champion went down with an injury in May during his fight with James Krause after a knockout loss to Abel Trujillo.

After winning three straight, including a TKO in his return to the UFC over Edson Barboza, Varner has gone just 1-4.

Like Varner, Dober (14-6) is in need of a win, having lost both of his Octagon bouts via decision to Nick Hein and Sean Spencer. Prior to his recent skid, Dober had won five in a row.
