Jamie Varner has been forced out of his UFC on FOX 9 bout with Pat Healy, due to a torn rotator cuff suffered while training. Bobby Green makes a quick turn-around from UFC Fight Night 31 to replace Varner on the card.

Pat Healy had a six-fight win streak snapped at UFC 165, after never being able to get started offensively against the relentless Khabib Nurmagomedov and ended up losing a unanimous decision. Healy submitted Jim Miller in his UFC debut, but the win was overturned to a no contest following a positive test result for marijuana in the post-fight screening.

Bobby Green extended his win streak to six, following a controversial TKO victory over James Krause at UFC Fight Night 31. He’s now 2-0 in the UFC, including a third round submission win over Jacob Volkmann in February. Green amassed a 4-1 record during his time with Strikeforce, earning key victories over James Terry and Matt Ricehouse.
