Jorge Gurgel vs. Jamie Varner at UFC 73

The Ultimate Fighter 2’s Jorge Gurgel (10-2 MMA, 1-1 UFC) will face Jamie Varner (12-2 MMA, 1-1 UFC) at UFC 73 in July. Gurgel told a UFCjunkie.com source about the upcoming match during a Warrior Mixed Martial Arts event in Bowling Green, Ky., last night.

UFC 73 takes place on July 7 will air on pay-per-view. The event is expected to take place in Las Vegas and also features two title fights. UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva will face Nate Marquardt, and lightweight champion Sean Sherk will face Hermes Franca in his first-ever title defense.

Gurgel, a training of former middleweight champion Rich Franklin’s, most recently defeated The Ultimate Fighter 3’s Danny Abbadi at UFC 63 in September. Three months prior to that undercard fight, he lost an entertaining fight to Mark Hominick via unanimous decision in the televised portion of UFC Fight Night 5.

Varner, too, is coming off a victory in the UFC. “The Worm” defeated local Jason Gilliam on the undercard of last month’s UFC 68 event in Columbus, Ohio. The fight — the first of the night — ended with a quick 94-second submission via rear-naked choke.

Prior to that fight, Varner lost a tough-fought UFC 62 match to Hermes Franca. Varner was winning the fight and on his way to a decision victory but was eventually submitted by armbar in the closing minutes of the third round.

Considering the UFC’s stacked 170-pound division, the Gurgel-Varner fight could very well take place at 155 pounds.
The full rumored card for the event includes:


UFC 73 (July 7, 2007) — Las Vegas, Nev.
Champion Anderson Silva vs. Nathan Marquardt (for UFC middleweight title)
Champion Sean Sherk vs. Hermes Franca (for UFC lightweight title)
Tito Ortiz vs. Rashad Evans

I don't think Gurgel is a "big draw", he has been a disapointment in his growth as a fighter, I know he has had some knee problems but he had that big smack talk like Ed Herman and didn't produce much. His fight will probably only be seen that night TIME PERMITTING

His last fight he just laid it on the line and stood toe to toe and swapped punches he has good stand up and a solid chin… I cant wait to see his fight by fight improvement!

I'd like to see that if that is the case, if a fighters career is teetering on the edge the best way to pull back from that edge is to buy some loyalty from the mob by throwing down a brutal stand up war. THAT GETS FIGHT CONTRACTS,--WHEN IN DOUBT, BANG IT OUT!!!
