"My medical bills are going to be way more than what I made in this fight. I had to get a bunch of X-Rays done, a CAT scan, I had to go get surgery on my hand, I'm gonna have to get my foot casted, I have to go back to the doctor and have my eyes checked out again, all that stuff adds up. It's crazy that people can sit there and talk shit about me when they have no idea what I did [on Sunday night]. I laid it all on the line, I put my body through Hell. My hand's broken, I can barely walk, my foot's broken, I'm on crutches and I got a cast on my hand. I don't know what the hell people wanted from me. It's crazy."
-WEC lightweight champion Jamie Varner talks to Pro MMA Radio about his 4.5 round war with Donald Cerrone at WEC 38 'Varner vs. Cerrone.' "C-4″ and "Cowboy" put on a thrilling back-and-forth brawl for more than 20 minutes until the bout was stopped prematurely due to an illegal knee by Cerrone. A dazed Varner opted not to continue, sending it to the judges scorecards for a final decision and provided a disappointing ending to an otherwise great title fight. Afterwards, an incredulous Varner was lit up on the message boards for throwing in the towel - a criticism he maintains is unwarranted based on the abuse his body took during the fight.
