New Jamie Varner Interview
(punchdrunkgamer.com)
WEC Lightweight Champion Jamie “C-4” Varner recently spoke with PDG about his recovery from injuries sustained in his victory against “Cowboy” Donald Cerrone, the fans that hate and when he will return to defend his belt.

PDG: Obviously, people are going to want to see a rematch between you and “Cowboy” Cerrone; any objections? Varner: I will smash his face in. I was kicking his ass in the first round of our fight but I broke my hand and that is when the fight changed. That was the first fight in my career where I actually got hurt. I would like to think that the odds of that happening again are very slim and I think that a rematch would be an easy fight.
