A lightweight match-up between former WEC titleholder Jamie Varner and Gleison Tibau has been added to the UFC 164 fight card in Milwaukee.
UFC officials announced the bout on Wednesday.
Varner (21-7-1) returned to the Octagon at UFC 146 against Edson Barboza after competing outside of the organization for a five-year period. A heavy underdog heading into the fight, Varner defeated Barboza by technical knockout in the first round, logging one of the biggest upsets in 2012.
Tibau (27-9) is a UFC veteran. The fight with Varner will be his twentieth bout in the organization and his third fight in 2013. Tibau is coming off a submission win over John Cholish in his last outing on May 18.
