XFC 14 lineup takes shape for HDNet broadcast, Gormley scratched from co-headliner

The fight card for XFC's first event of 2011, which airs live on HDNet, is taking shape.

As previously announced, "XFC 14: Resurrection" takes place Oct. 21 at UCF Arena in Orlando, Fla., on the campus of University of Central Florida.

The headliner pits former WEC champion Jamie Varner (17-5-1) vs. fellow lightweight Nate Jolly (10-3).

However, XFC officials have confirmed with ( that a co-headliner between heavyweights Scott Barrett (12-2) and former UFC fighter Chase Gormley (7-5) has been scratched.

Additionally, 125-pounder Marianna Kheyfets (3-0) and featherweight Bruce Connors (8-3) are booked for the card and await opponents.
