Jamie Varner was relatively unknown until he stepped into the Octagon at UFC 62 against Hermes Franca. He dominated Franca throughout the majority of the fight, until he gassed out. Franca ended up finishing him towards the end of the third round.

Even though Varner lost that fight, he opened a lot of eyes. He had a subsequent victory over Jason Gilliam at UFC 68. After his victory, he was moved to the World Extreme Cagefighting organization. It was there that he rose to championship form.

He defeated Sherron Leggett in the first round of their bout, earning a title shot against then-champion “Razor” Rob McCullough. Varner shocked fans by knocking out McCullough and gaining the WEC lightweight champion.

I think the wrecking ball just takes out varner and we have a new WEC champ. Go Hicks.
