Submission ace Wagnney Fabiano will lock horns with Clint Godfrey at WEC 46: "Varner vs. Henderson," which is slated for Arco Arena in Sacramento, Calif., on Jan. 10, 2010.

Fabiano -- who is coming off a shocking submission loss to newcomer Mackens Semerzier in his last outing -- was originally slated to take on Frank Gomez; however, the promotion today announced the opponent switch after an injury forced Gomez off the card.

Fabiano and his training partner, Jose Aldo, were dominant forces in the WEC featherweight division. In fact, Aldo recently captured the 145-pound title, meaning that Fabiano will look to rise back to the top in a different division after being on the wrong end of what was easily one of the biggest upsets of 2009 courtesy of Semerzier.

Indeed, the Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt will now set his sights on the talent-rich 135-pound bantamweight division. Accordingly, he'll have to work his way into a contender's spot in a division stacked with the best 135-pounders in the world. 

Godfrey, who will make his debut inside the blue cage, is just three years into his professional mixed martial arts career. It's safe to say that he's now set to face his toughest competitor to date. The WEC-newcomer will put his eight fight win-streak on the line in Sacramento in two weeks.

Stay tuned to MMAMania.com for breaking news and updates surrounding WEC 46, which will air on Versus at 10 p.m. ET on fight night.
