If there’s one thing that Jamie Varner can’t stand, it’s losing. Since joining up with the UFC, the former WEC lightweight champion has fared pretty well with a 2-1 record and memorable fights to match.
“I hate losing more than I like winning,” said Varner on MMA Junkie Radio. “I hate losing. I don’t care what it is – checkers, video games, anything. I hate losing. So I’m going out to try to win.”
Varner would eventually drop the WEC belt and his next two fights. After four wins in a 15 month span, Varner took Upset of the Year for 2012 by stopping Edson Barboza at UFC 146. He’s bounced back from a Fight of the Night loss to Joe Lauzon with a win against Melvin Guillard at December’s UFC 155.
The return of Varner hasn’t been made public.
