Abel Trujillo left no doubt in his rematch with Roger Bowling at UFC on FOX 9, stopping him in the second round with vicious punches up against the cage to earn the TKO finish. In their first meeting last August, the scene looked very similar, but the fight was overturned to a no contest, due to two illegal knee strikes from Trujillo.

Jamie Varner has traded wins and losses since his return to the UFC in May of last year, most recently losing a split decision to Gleison Tibau at UFC 164. Varner’s most notable victory was an upset first round TKO win over Edson Barboza at UFC 146.
