On Wednesday afternoon, a lightweight scrap between Jamie Varner (pictured) and Gleison Tibau was added to the UFC 164 roster.

The August 31 event takes place inside Bradley Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Varner has won two of three scraps since returning to the Octagon. The former WEC champion was last seen taking a split decision win over Melvin Guillard at UFC 155.

Tibau, meanwhile, has alternated between wins and losses over his past five fights. The Brazilian most recently submitted John Cholish in May.
