Jamie Varner: Frank Mir's Commentating Was Skewed
According to WEC Lightweight Champion Jamie Varner, UFC Interim Heavyweight Champion and WEC commentator Frank Mir is clearly a far better fighter than commentator. That or, at least according to Varner, Mir is a Donald Cerrone nuthugger and thinks his commentary on Sunday's fight was bs.

Varner Wins Split, To Retain Title
Through four rounds, WEC lightweight champion Jamie Varner and No. 1 contender Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone went to war, just like everyone in attendance in San Diego and everyone watching at home expected out of the two 155-pound warriors. Unfortunately, it was an accidental knee strike in the fifth round that brought about the end of the fight. Varner kept his title via split decision, and both competitors promised another go round if the WEC would make it happen.
