Not long ago, Jamie Varner was thought to be on the back end of his career going just 1-4-1 in 2010 and most of 2011. He has since gone 4-1, including a huge upset win over Edson Barboza in his return to the UFC in May of last year. Varner most recently defeated Melvin Guillard in dominant fashion, but one judge insanely scored the fight for Guillard causing the split decision.
Gleison Tibau can’t seem to advance past the gatekeeper role in the UFC’s lightweight division. He went a perfect 3-0 in 2011, but has traded wins and losses since the streak ended at UFC 148 with a decision loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov. Last time out, Tibau submitted John Cholish in second round at UFC on FX 8.
