Jamie Varner Disappointed He Didn’t Get To Face Melvin Guillard This Weekend

Jamie Varner, a former WEC champion, was forced to pull out of a scheduled match up with Melvin Guillard Saturday evening at The Ultimate Fighter 16 Finale. Varner became ill in the warm-up room and Nevada Athletic Commission personnel would not allow him to compete.

The bout was removed from the main card and re-scheduled for later this month at UFC 155: Dos Santos vs. Velasquez II. While Guillard had his opportunity to speak out on the fight being cancelled, Varner decided to take to Twitter to explain his disappointment.

The placement of the bout at UFC 155 is unknown, though it could shift into the prelim card main spot after several changes were made to the lineup due to injuries.
