SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Two champions entered the cage for the main event of Sunday's "WEC 46: Varner vs. Henderson" event, and both looked to walk away from the bout with the title "undisputed" added to their championship status.

With a deftly applied third-round guillotine choke, former interim title holder Benson Henderson (11-1 MMA, 4-0 WEC) did exactly that.

A vanquished Jamie Varner (16-3 MMA, 4-1 WEC) was stripped of his belt, and the controversial lightweight offered a few parting verbal shots in the post-fight interview. But at the evening's post-fight press conference, "Smooth" told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that he harbored no ill feelings toward Varner.

I was really disapointed with varner last night. Trash talking the person that just beat u is just stupid. Also varner said that henderson didnt wanna fight all he wanted to do was grapple when varner was the one going for takedowns. And the comment in itself i beleive makes mma look bad. Varner is a great fighter but come on dude u cant do stuff like that

I've never liked Varner, but recent comments of his made me wonder why I didnt like him, then last night he reminded me why I dont like him...

Oh well sets up another interesting Grudge matchin the WEC 155 div.

it really seems varner is trying to push this MMA villan role on himself.

but henderson looked great, he is a badass fighter.

His after fight speeches are the the worst ever; I would like to see cerrone beat the tar our of varner next. Varner tells people to boo him but, they already are, he needs to be classy in defeat.
