Quoteworthy:

"This is a really crazy fight because we're both wrestler/boxers, and I feel like where I lack, he exceeds, and where he lacks, I exceed. I feel like I'm definitely the better boxer and technical striker, but he hits really, really hard, but yet he's a better wrestler. He's nationally decorated, he's an Olympic alternate for Britain; I mean, he's no joke. Kamal Shalorus is the toughest guy you've never heard of."

Former WEC lightweight champion Jamie Varner prepares for an all out war when he faces Kamal Shalorus in the main event of WEC 49 on June 20 at the Rexall Place in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The "Prince of Persia" is 2-0 for the WEC (6-0-1 overall) and could make himself an immediate title contender if he detonates "C-4" on Sunday night. Anyone thinking that Varner is in over his head? Or is it the other way around?
