Jaime Varner: 'The WEC should be called the Urijah Faber show'

Quoteworthy:

"It should be called The Urijah Faber Show instead of World Extreme Cagefighting. They keep giving Faber all of the big promotional deals, in fact they just hooked him up with Amp Energy Drink. Amp just became the official energy drink of the WEC. I called the WEC regarding Amp about two months ago because a buddy of mine who works with Pepsi told me about it. I asked the WEC to get me on board with them and they said they would see what they could do. Lo and behold Faber got the deal."

WEC lightweight champion Jamie Varner shares an oft-rumored sentiment that Urijah Faber still gets the royal treatment from the promotion despite no longer carrying the featherweight torch. "C-4" hasn't been able to detonate since sustaining injuries in his title defense against Donald Cerrone at WEC 38 in January 2009. He'll get a chance to prove he's still king of the 155-pound mountain when he locks horns with rising star Benson Henderson at WEC 46 this Sunday (Jan. 10) on Versus. Does the champ still have the goods? Or will we enter the "Smooth" era?
