WEC 46: Varner vs. Henderson Post-Fight Press Conference

Jaime Varner - "I thought I was winning, definitely pushing the pace. I like to go forward. ... I heard Ben got some new boxing coach and all this stuff because we live in the same city. I was expecting him to try and trade punches with me and that wasn't the case. He had a good game plan. He used his kick to keep me away. I guess that's the M.O. on me; use your kicks, keep me away, that way I don't have to touch you."

"A fight is a fight. I definitely came to fight. It seemed like Ben was doing a little bit more running. A little bit more countering and that's game plan. We all have our strategies and his was good."

"I was definitely trying to box. I was trying to punch and when that wasn't working , I figured I'll try and kick his legs out a little bit. Maybe he won't run so much and when that fell through I got caught in a guillotine. ... I started going out. I was trying at first and then it was just done. He had it in."
