I know he's not a fan favorite by any means, and I'm not necessarily a fan of the guy, but he's talented as hell and I'm glad to see he's back.

I give him his props on this last fight.

But for some reason I don't see him being a perennial contender.

He impressed me outside the cage, too. It could be an act to gain more fans, but he seems more mature and humble since his WEC days.

I've always been a Varner fan. There weren't many backing Varner in his fights once the Cerrone feud began and still aren't, but I'll always root for him.

There's a bleacher report article out there written by a "journalist" with the headline "Jamie Varner's Victory Should Earn Him Title Shot"...... They'd let a monkey write for them as a "featured columnist".

Major props to Varner, hell of a performance from a guy that considered himself retired not too long ago.

I don't like varner at all

But I did enjoy him running to the cage side of Ben Henderson and saying something to him.

Next Ufc fight will show if varner ia for real

I hope to see him in Denver against Cerrone. I could watch those guys fight each other three times a year.

Very, very disappointed with Varner......

I can't believe he didn't perform 'The Worm' after DEMOLISHING the over-hyped, overrated Barbosa.

Next time, DO THE WORM!
