SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Jamie Varner's intel turned out to be wrong in his title unification fight with Ben Henderson.The former WEC lightweight champion, who lives a short drive from the Glendale, Ariz.- based Henderson in Phoenix, said he had received information that the newly crowed champ had hired a boxing coach and was looking to bang at Sunday's WEC 46 event.

Varner just dosn't get it when you disrespect the guy that just beat you your not going to make any fans. It was a close fight and Varner was probably winning but the fact is you tapped out. Henderson had the perfect game plan.....well at least a good enough plan to win.

It makes me laugh when the guy who just lost claims he only lost because he was trying to be exciting. Henderson got into his head and caused the sloppy shot.

He's just so fake and full of bs...throughout the fight he's slapping Henderson on the hand saying good round and such when he's winning, the second he gets tapped he reverts back to his childish ways and says Henderson wanted to grapple while he wanted to fight. His comments never cease to amaze me.

It just seems like every time someone puts a microphone in the vicinity of Jamie Varner, he says something that pushes him further away from the fans. The guy just can't get out of his own way when it comes to interview time.
