lets be honest here. im usually not one to be upset by a fighters antics but this got to me. after the knee, varner grabs his head and not his eye. a couple minutes later after the fight is called off he trys to get up and stumbles (disoriented? maybe) then he walks to the center and starts limping (what..?). Also, when he was given the interview, he said he blamed his hand being broken in the 2nd round. and also he started apologizing and crying saying "he's better than that." which is usually because of guilt coming in. I felt like he knew cerrone was going to go all out in the 5th round and was gaining momentum.

maybe im wrong all counts here and ill have to rewatch it, but it definitely came off that way to me on first glance.

But why would he say screw it im quitting, he was winning imo 3 rounds to 1 at that point and could have took Cerrone down and LNP at that point if he was gassed. If you look at the replay and slow motion its obvious he had his head whipped back from the knee.

the way he said it, yes. thats how it looked to me. he kept apologizing like it was his fault. if somebody kneed me on the ground and it couldnt see, i wouldn't be crying and apologizing, i would be ticked off. Especially if i was winning

Just because you would react that way doesn't mean he would, but I see your point. It just seemed to me he was upset and apologetic because he couldn't continue in what was a great fight.

point well taken. ill reserve my judgments until i see the fight one more time, or a medical report or something to legitimize the ending of that fight.

on a sidenote -- why would he say "im better than that" in the interview? i dunno, i'm going to drop this. i dont want to bash any fighter

Probably a good idea cause it seems like you are looking for something to bash on. I mean when it comes down to it, Cerrone was the one who threw the knee to a downed opponent, whether he meant to or not.

in all fairness, varner wasnt down on 3 points when he threw the knee, but he was when it connected.

WAR COWBOY

My only wish for last night's event was that Cerrone would beat Varner and when Varner came out wearing sunglasses INDOORS...well, that solidified it for me.

Cowboy is gonna be a force.

He is kind of right about that. It isn't that he just apologized it is that he kept doing it. When you keep repeating yourself you are usually trying to cover something up.

That's why I said whether he meant to or not.

I get what you guys are saying, but I was just pointing out the other side of the arguement. He may have been faking or he may have been upset he couldn't continue, only Jamie Varner knows which.
